 Miracle of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh): Splitting of the moon


Miracles of the Prophet Muhammad  (pbuh) are a number of supernatural occurrences given to him by Allah, which were witnessed by people during his lifetime. These miracles are shown either in the Qur'an or, in the hadith (traditions of Muhammad pbuh). Prophet Muhammad's miracles encompass a broad range, such as the splitting of the moon, multiplication of food, manifestation of water, hidden knowledge, prophesies, healing, punishment, and power over nature.
Apart from the greatest miracle given to him, the Quran, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) performed many physical miracles witnessed by his contemporaries numbering in hundreds.
 Below are accounts of some of the other miracles of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
The miracle mentioned below is from Sahih al-Bukhari, the most authentic collection of hadith.
Splitting of the Moon
Volume 6, Book 60, Number 388:
Narrated Abdullah:
The moon was cleft asunder while we were in the company of the Prophet, and it became two parts. The Prophet said, Witness, witness (this miracle)." ( Bukhari)
Another Hadith describes the event as such:
"The people of Makkah asked the Prophet (pbuh) for a sign, so the moon was cleft asunder in Makkah two times (meaning two parts), so the following was revealed:
اقْتَرَبَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَانْشَقَّ الْقَمَرُ 
The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder" [Qur'an 54:1]…Tirmidhi)
