    Default Neil Armstrong didn't hear the Adhan on the moon!

    Salam 'Alaykum,

    Some muslims say Neil Armstron heard the Adhan whilst he was on the moon. I have also been told about this. I just browsed throught Yanabi .com and found this:

    NEIL A. ARMSTRONG
    LEBANON, OHIO 45036

    July 14,1983

    Mr. Phil Parshall Director
    Asian Research Center
    International Christian
    Fellowship 29524 Bobrich
    Livonia, Michigan 48152

    Dear Mr. Parshall:

    Mr. Armstrong has asked me to reply to your letter and
    to thank you for the courtesy of your inquiry.

    The reports of his conversion to Islam and of hearing
    the voice of Adzan on the moon and elsewhere are all
    untrue.

    Several publications in Malaysia, Indonesia and other
    countries have published these reports without verifi-
    cation. We apologize for any inconvenience that this
    incompetent journalism may have caused you.

    Subsequently, Mr. Armstrong agreed to participate in a
    telephone interview, reiterating his reaction to these
    stories. I am enclosing copies of the United States
    State Department's communications prior to and after
    that interview.

    Sincerely

    Vivian White
    Administrative Aide

    I have been hearing this since i was a kid in the 80s....It was always word of mouth...This just goes to show the power of listening to hearsay and esp when it comes to something that makes us feel good then we dont even bother to double check the truth but repeat what we hear so easily

    yeah.. just like Michael Jackson has become a muslim and built a masjid..

    now true about the mosque perhaps.. but not when I heard it in 1984

    All he said at the time in an interview, when he heard the adhan, is "Oh that sounds spooky, like something from outer space". Muslims in their zeal took that and made all sorts out of it.

    The fact he's rarely seen in public, but the second man to walk on the moon; Buzz Aldrin always makes TV appearances, is the stuff of conjecture.

    Allah knows best.

    Ooo we're delving into conspiracy theories now lol. For me, the one stumbling block is van halen belts. They stretch some 100km in radius ( I think, not totally sure) and it's enough to burn human skin. You would need a concrete block to go through it unharmed but they had.....tin foil....

    They argue that the speed they were travelling at and the time in the radiation was minimal so unlikely to cause damage.

    I'm not convinced by their answer.

    To further discuss, I was told as a child at masjid by my good teacher, that Ulemas said we'd never reach the moon because this belt of radiation is described in the Quraan.

    Allah knows best.

    Why even go to the moon in the first place?

    My humble opinion? To look for evidence of the split in the moon....
