What Does Islam/Chritainitee (Quran and Bible) says about Full Solar and Lunar eclipses (Blood Moon)

Updated on September 28, 2015

Blood Moon


What Quran Says About Solar and Lunar Eclipse?

In Surah Al-Nahl the Quran says:

“And He has made subservient for you the night and the day and the sun and the moon. And the stars are subservient by His Command. No doubt in it there are signs for the wise people. “

The Quran says that the moon and sun are the belongings of Allah and subservient by His Command. The sun and moons always and all the creature obey the command of Almighty. Moon and sun are in the service of human being and they have no importance more than this. It has been acknowledged by Quran centuries before that moon and sun are moving in a specific direction. So the Quran says:

"Allah is He who raised up the heavens without the pillars that you can see, and then He settled Himself on the throne as is befitting to His Dignity and made the sun and the moon subservient. Each one runs to a term stated.

Moon or sun cannot be the cause of any happening on earth. Lunar or solar eclipse, at the most, could be the indicators of some future events.

So in Surah No.75 (Al-Qayamah) of Quran says:

6. He asks, when will be the Day of Resurrection?

7. But when the eyes is dazzled.

8. And the moon is eclipsed.

9. And the sun and the moon will be joined together.

So one of the signs of day of resurrection (Qayamah) mentioned in Quran is consistent eclipses. The verse No.8 speaks about lunar eclipse whereas verse No.9 is about the sun eclipse. Moreover, the verse No.9 of Quran just proves the truthfulness of Quran and Islam. Today’s science says that the solar eclipse occurs when the moon and sun joined the path in the space that is to say the moon comes between earth and sun. Combined reading of these verses also shows that on the day of Qayamah there would a complete eclipse and near Qayamah the occurrence of eclipses would increase manifold.

What Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him) says about Solar & Lunar Eclipse?

There are sayings of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) narrating the occurrence of solar eclipse in the visible life of Holly Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). The holly Prophet (Peace be upon him) during the period of eclipse used to practice prayer till the time the solar eclipse was over. According to the sayings of the Holly Prophet (Peace be upon him):

i. The eclipse is the sign of Allah and nothing else.

ii. It is not due to the death or birth of any one.

On the day of sun eclipse Ibrahim the son of Holly Prophet (Peace be upon him) died and people started saying that the sun eclipse was due to the death of Prophet’s son. In another Hadith it is stated that the Holly Prophet on the day of sun eclipse hastened for prayer as if the day of Qayamah has taken place. This hadith also indicates that one of the sign of Qayamah (End of the days) is occurrence of solar and lunar eclipses.

There are many ahadiths on the subject of solar eclipse. For example in Book #004, Hadith #1990 the Holly Prophet (Peace be upon him) said that these (eclipses) are the signs which Allah sends, not on account of the death of anyone or life(birth) of any one, but Allah sends them to frighten thereby His servants. So when one sees any such thing, hasten to remember Him, supplicate Him and beg a pardon from Him.

In another hadith the holly Prophet (Peace be upon him) ordered his followers to free slaves on the day of lunar or solar eclipse (Book #46, Hadith #695) and (Book #46, Hadith #696). Since the slavery is abandoned in today’s world it is good to spend money in the name of Allah as in the old days slaves were just like the assets of the owner.

What Bible says about Solar and Lunar Eclipses?

The full moon eclipse is also known as ‘blood moon’. According to Bible too one of the signs of End of this world is blood moon. So in verse 20 of Act 2 it is mentioned that:

“20. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord comes.”

The prophecy of four blood moons is also about to comes true as according to NASA there would be four blood moons in 2014-2015 on the dates 4/15/2014, 10/08/2014, 04/04/2015 and 09/28/2015. According to the Jews there would be four eclipses before the end of the days. Is the end of the days is close? I think that is true but there are certain signs of End of the days (Al-Qayamah) have yet to occur.

Prophecies of Holly Quran and Bible viz-a-viz Scientific research

To know whether there is an increase in blood moon occurrence I visited the website of NASA which tells that from 2001 to 2200 there would be eight (08) “Total eclipse Tetrads” which is greatest in numbers after 0801 to 0900 1599 to -1500 when there were also 08 total eclipse tetrads. Total eclipse tetrads means when four consecutive lunar eclipses are all total eclipses, the group is known as a tetrad.

The above situation clearly indicates that this is not the first time that 8 'total eclips tetrads' are being taken place in a 100 years. But declaring that the End of times would come in a year or two is not correct thing to predict. I am quite sure that there are certain prophecies are Qayamah (End of Times) has yet to appear.
