PLACE OF MIRACLE
All the muslims know that once the prophet Muhammad Sallallaho allihiwasalam showed the miracle of spliting moon into two parts just by his holy index finger pointing towards full moon. This place might have been seen till 20 to 25 years ago just standing in mutaf ( place where the tawaf is performed). A mosque over the mountain where this miracle was observed had been built , named masjid_e-Bilal Or Masjid_e-Hilal but now this mosque is no more there.
picture exactly tells us where this mosque had exist.
see white masjid on the top of the hill.
An other old view
The little white mosque on
the top of the hill is the exact location of this miracle happining. it
is actually the mount of Qubais and now the beautiful palace of king
has been built here.
see two pictures below old and
latest and compare
Lonely minerate of safa gate on
extreme right is visible in both pictures. In old picture, on the top
of the hill you may see small houses and in the middle
Masjid-e-Hilal where as in new picture you see kings' beautiful
palace on same location. In the middle section of the palace
which is little bit higher seems to be the place of
bifurcating moon or the place of Masjid-e-Hilal.
Now pilgrims may just realize its
location by standing in mutaf facing towards Minerate of safa gate
which is also seen in the above picture. After modern construcion of
haram the look of all mineratres and the whole Haram has been
changed but minerate over safa gate might br recognised
easily even today as it has single minerate while all other minerates
are standing in pairs.
