Salaam Alaikum

A lot of gossip and rumour have been circulating since long about Neil Armstrong a.k.a. first man on the moon has converted to Islam.  The truth is that he is NOT a Muslim.  I suppose the cause of this rumour was his disappearance from the American public limelight, for which he maybe having his own reasons, but many Muslims presumed that this seclusion was likely because of his change of faith.  That led to stories being made in this connection about him hearing the Adhan in the moon and seeing a crack on the moon's surface and so on.   The mindset is somewhat similar to the many stories constructed to create the Hadith literature.  It once again proves how prone humans are in indulging in fabrications and figments of the imagination. Most importantly, it proves, as stated in Sister Heba's post , that the interest of many Muslims in their Faith comes through the attraction of celebrity status of other humans and not on the basis of the enormous and unparallel beauty of the Glorious Quraan.  Needless to say, this is a serious violation. 

To answer this question once and for all .. I repeat, Armstrong is not a Muslim.  As yet there's been no confirmation of his converting to Islam from any reliable sources, nor has Armstrong himself ever spoken on this issue which is sufficient evidence of the fact that he is not a Muslim. 

Also, we do not need to hear the Adhaan in or around the moon to prove that Islam is true. Whoever submits to Allah alone (becomes Muslim), they will benefit their own soul.  If they go astray or disbelieve, they harm their own soul.   

"Say: O mankind!  Now hash the Truth from your Rab come unto you. So whosoever is guided, is guided only for (the good of) his soul, and whosoever errs errs only against it.  And I am not a warder over you."  10:108  Surah Yunus.

"Indeed!  We have revealed unto you (Muhammad) the Scripture for mankind with truth. Then whosoever goes right it is for his soul, and whosoever strays, strays only to its hurt.  And you are not a warder over them.

Yes, this is a much needed clarification.  I've also been perpetually hearing of this guy becoming a Muslim from others, but never from him.  I was told that Muslim groups in Facebook are also sending circulars referring to him as a Muslim.  Well, this matter should now be confirmed.  He's not a Muslim.  And that does not in any way bother us.  It's people (whoever they maybe) who are dependent upon Islam if they want to prosper ultimately.  Islam does not depend upon anyone to prosper.

Thanks for the post Sis.

The person who reverts to Islam is the one who benefits, NOT the other way round. 

Some stupid so-called Muslims, especially the superficial younger generation in countries like Pakistan and India, and even in the Arab world, who are carried away and lured by media glitz are overly keen to spread rumors of celebrities converting to Islam, as if Islam gains if these celebrities embrace it.  How ignorant people can be!  Islam does not need celebrities to establish its truth.  It's the celebrities who are in dire need to shake themselves up and come to Islam.  Yet most of them don't.  They will face the 'music' on the Day of Judgment, InshAllah.

not true....
===========================
REF: JAKARTA 3281 AND 2374

1.  FORMER ASTRONAUT NEIL ARMSTRONG, NOW IN PRIVATE BUSINESS, HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF PRESS REPORTS IN EGYPT, MALAYSIA AND INDONESIA (AND PERHAPS ELSEWHERE) ALLEGING HIS CONVERSION TO ISLAM DURING HIS LANDING ONTHE MOON IN 1969.  AS A RESULT OF SUCH REPORTS, ARMSTRONG HAS RECEIVED COMMUNICATIONS FROM INDIVIDUALS AND RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS, AND A FEELER FROM AT LEAST ONE GOVERNMENT, ABOUT HIS POSSIBLE PARTICIPATION IN ISLAMIC ACTIVITIES.

2.  WHILE STRESSING HIS STRONG DESIRE NOT TO OFFEND ANYONE OR SHOW DISRESPECT FOR ANY RELIGION, ARMSTRONG HAS ADVISED DEPARTMENT THAT REPORTS OF HIS CONVERSION TO ISLAM ARE INACCURATE.

3.  IF POST RECEIVE QUERIES ON THIS MATTER, ARMSTRONG REQUESTS THAT THEY POLITELY BUT FIRMLY INFORM QUERYING PARTY THAT HE HAS NOT CONVERTED TO ISLAM AND HAS NO CURRENT PLANS OR DESIRE TO TRAVEL OVERSEAS TO PARTICIPATE IN ISLAMIC RELIGOUS ACTIVITIES.

Walaikum Salam dear sister Muslima.

salamem

Very true sister.  I've also noticed Muslims get crazy with enthusiasm when celebrities show any interest in Islam.  Islam does not need celebrities.  Quite the opposite.  It's  humanity that needs Islam.  Anyone who reverts to Islam, celebrity or whoever, they are only doing it for the good of their own soul.  They need Allah.  Allah does not need anyone.  He is too independent.  Alhumdulilah.

Yes it's true that Armstrong and several people after him did land in the moon.  But that's no big deal if we think about it.    In Verse 55:33 Allah challenges humans that they will never be able to reach all regions of the heavens, which has proven to be very true.  The heavens includes the entire universe which is a very large expanse.  It's so infinite that we can hardly imagine its size.  No scientist has been able to measure it.  Our solar system which consists of 9 planets and their moons is just a drop in the ocean compared to the entire universe.  The solar system might seem very large to  humans, that's because humans are a very small creation.   But the creation of the entire heavens is a much greater portent of Allah.  Thus, Allah says Surah 40:57 "Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind; but most of mankind know not."   The earth's moon that revolves around the earth can hardly be called far in distance compared to all those other heavenly bodies that are contained in the universe which are too distant even to been seen with the most sophisticated binoculars.  Scientists have acknowledged that everything we know about the universe or the heavens may seem a lot to us but it's actually very little compared to everything we do not yet know and will never know.  Those are the secrets of Allah, Alhumdulilah.   So, if man goes to the moon, they might think they achieved a lot because their abilities are limited and it's not possible for them to go much beyond that, even though moon is the closest body to earth.  Next, man is thinking of going to Mars.  NASA talks proudly about it.  They have been preparing for it since the last several years and spent billions of dollars.  Yet they are not ready and they say it will take many more years if ever man is able to land on Mars.  And think of Mars, it's the closest planet to earth in the solar system.  Still man is having trouble reaching there.   There is absolutely no question of man going to other parts of space beyond the solar system.  That's for sure.  And this is exactly the point expressed in Verse 55:33.

Secondly, events like man reaching the moon and maybe a planet or two within the solar system is very much in accordance with Verse 55:33 of Surah Ar-Rehman.  In fact, it's a prophecy of man's small travels in space close to the earth.  Allah Almighty mentions that man will never have the power to penetrate the regions of the heavens unless by the permission of Allah.  This means that man will try to explore the universe but their efforts will go only so far as Allah has granted them the ability and permission.  Until now Allah has allowed them to go up to the moon.  It's possible that Allah may give them the permission to go a bit further in future, if He wills.   But man will never be able to explore the entire universe.  That's surely impossible which Allah has asserted in Verse 55:33.

Verse 55:33 also refers to man exploring the earth.  This too is a very accurate reference, Alhumdulilah.  There are many parts of earth that are inaccessible by humans and have never been visited.  This includes places in Antarctica, some of the higher elevation areas of the Himilayas, parts of Alaska and Siberia and perhaps even  some areas of the Sahara.  Many parts of the American continent are still unexplored.  For example the heavily eroded mountains of the Guyana Highlands in Eastern Venezuela have never been visited by man.  This is just one example.  There are dozens of such unexplored places dotted all over the American continent.  There are also some remote islands scattered over the Pacific ocean that have not yet been visited by humans.   And all of these are places above water.  The ocean floor also counts which too is a part of earth where large expanses of land have never been visited nor seen by man.
