Floating Stone (Muallaq Stone) – Real or Fake ?
Few days back, I saw a picture hanging on the wall somewhere. First have a look at it:
Caption of this picture was :
It is said that the rock is in Jerusalem. It was the rock where the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) stood when he begin the ascend to heaven during the Israk Mikraj event. The rock was said wanted to follow the Prophet ascending to heaven, but the Prophet stop it. So it stopped the ascend and staying afloat until now.
I have found different captions of this picture on different websites, but all of them were indicating about some miracle. When I saw this picture, the first thing came in my mind was “ Is it really true ?? “. When I did the research, I come to a conclusion that this picture is fake. Following are some logical reasons for that conclusion:
1) When I searched on the internet, I found only one picture of this stone like this. This is the era of social websites, If “floating stone” is a fact then different videos and photographs would be shared by many people.
2) If it is floating like this for the last 1400 years then why this was never reported in the news ?
