Sunita Williams did not accept Islam


My Muslim brother will be very happy after watching above news. But this is not true. This is a hoax. It has been claimed on various websites, blogs, forums, and in chain e-mails/mass SMS texts, that Sunita Williams had converted from Hinduism to Islam on her return from the moon.

Here are a few examples of the claims being made:
1/ "Sunita Williams (First Indian woman who went on a space journey few months back) accepted “ISLAM” Masha Allah, bcoz when they were on the moon, they saw towards EARTH, the entire EARTH looked dark, but 2 places on the EARTH GLITERED & looked like SPARKS (Roshni). They were shocked to see that and saw them with the help of telescope and came to know that those two places were “MAKKAH” and “MADINAH” Masha Allah!. Then they decided that after reaching to earth they’ll accept “ISLAM”. So be proud u’r a muslim. Allah Hafiz…!"
2/ "Sunita Williams, the 1st indian lady who went to the moon on 02/07/2007 said that from the moon, the whole earth looked very black and dark, except the two places which were bright and shining when she saw through the telescope. These places were MAKKAH & MADINA (Saudi Arabia). Also, at the moon all the frequencies failed but still she could listen to the AZAAN..s'allah"
3/ "Encouragin news for Muslims....Sunita Williams the woman who went in space has converted to Islam because when they were in space the entire Earth appeared dark but only two places on Earth appeared like sparks. With telescopic view they identified the two places as MAKKAH and MADINAH and resolved to accept Islam upon reaching the Earth. Alhamdulillah the almighty brought them back safely, so subhanallah, be proud to be a Muslim."
Sunita Williams went to the International Space Station, not to the moon. The last moon landing (Apollo 17) was on December 7, 1972 and Eugene Cernan is, to date, the last person to have walked on the Moon.

She is also not the "first Indian woman who went on a space journey". The Indian-American astronaut, Kalpana Chawla, was the first woman of Indian ethnicity to fly in space.

The claims state that they decided, upon returning to earth, they would accept Islam. However, when setting off toward the International Space Station, Williams had taken with her a copy of the Bhagavad Gita and a small statue of Lord Ganesha, and following her return to earth on June 22, 2007, she showed no signs of having converted to Islam. In fact, she claimed Lord Ganesha, not Allah, was looking after her. Williams fondly recalled taking a copy of Bhagvad Gita and an idol of Lord Ganesha along with her to the space station and took tense moments in her stride. "I knew Ganesha was looking after me," she said.

More than three months later in an October 2007 interview with India Today, nothing had changed, and she reiterated her desire to go to the moon. Up in space, the Gita and Ganesha were what kept me grounded. They put life in perspective," says Sunita Williams in her India Today interview.

So it is very clear that it is a hoax. Finally, I will request all the Muslim brothers and Sisters to stop sending this kind of wrong information to others. Please check the information before sending it to others.As a Muslim, we should beware from this kind of information.

Dear Money Solution System

Anonymous is right.. and is referring to the important fact that no muslim has ever gone into space or the moon..

I am a muslim, but it is important that we do not create fictional myths. For an outsider, such claims require proof. Well, us musims can say or believe whatever we want. Nobody is stopping us. But then, we shouldn't be so judgemental on other religions. Christianity also talks about resurrection. There is no proof of these things...

For example, if you ask me about Harry Potter, and whether he is real. I could argue that he is listed in four Harry Potter books and all the Harry Potter fans say that he is real. Your argument is similar in nature to a non muslim.

Similarly, for the saatwaan asmaan thing, you are referring to Quran and Ahadith.. There is no outside proof of these things. We can believe in them.. That is right.. But let's not expect outsiders to accept these things on face value and without proof.

Rehan Delhi said...

Ya you are right. But you should also look in to and compare all the religion on the earth. You will not find any holy book beside Holy Quran is written in first person and finish in the lifetime of prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)not a dot of a change and remain unchanged from last 14th hundred years as promise by Allah himself. Allah said if you believe this book is not from me to create book like Quran or one verse like Quran. If you all the learner people from all the religion will get together with help of Gin and angles would not be able to produce one verse like Quran. This challenge is given by Allah himself and we failed to meet this challenge and we will never achieve this challenge. Because Allah knows the best because he made us. By using my common sense with open mind i see this book has more reliability then any other religion book in the world. So yes Muslim are the first to go on Arsh as Quran claim that. (SubhnAllah). Many people try to changed in Quran but they all failed. I want to know whose power is that This is real proof of Real holy book.
I was open minded enough to study almost every religion and finally decided to stick with Islam. Islam did not gave the green card or money. Just gave me common scene how to deal with real problem with with real answer.
Thank

this is to Mr DEVANSH SHARMA

Sir, We being Muslims care for the other humans also,so we get happy when any intellectual REVERT to Islam.

Revert not Convert bcoz every human takes birth in this world AS AN MUSLIM (the obedient/servant of Almighty GOD ) but its surroundings make to think differently.

And if you have any doubts in Quran -that "It is the revelation from Allah to prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)".for all the humans in the world .

There is an open Domain for investigation (internet) go on and research on it .... "IF YOU DARE TO" .Bcoz when the eyes see the truth ,you cannot close it .

i make dua for you & me that Allah shows us the RIGHT way during our lifetime,and give us SUCCESS after DEATH.....

Allah Hafiz

It is only for Sunita Williams to confirm or deny her conversion to Islam.None other than her can comment on her conversion to Islam. While she is still available on our planet, can't we take her statement on it? Media can be useful in getting it done. Just do it and close the chapter once & for all. It will save us a lot of time & energy.

To all Muslims: Even if we dont have the so called scientific proof of our faith we should not shy away from expressing our true beliefs. There can be no Scientific Proof of Heaven, or Hell. There also can not be certain beyond doubt proof of life after death.

To all Non-Muslims. Go on believing whatever you like but please leave our beautiful religion, Islam alone.

If some one believes that Islam is the true religion then they are free to join it. If not then they are free to believe whatever they like.

Yes they don't know but it is our duty to make aware them n bring them on the right path tohid life after death judgment day n jannat n jahannam ...

It is not acceptable that what is right we should not show gentleman has written very correct.

Mohamed Wahba said...

ALLAH "all praise to him", create who like, choose for his paradise who deserve, and choose for hell who deserve. All what is required from us is to think and try to find the truth, not to say that we find our parents make that and we will follow without thinking. If u think about religion, there are only three religions which on the earth "which is accepted that they come from ALLAH" so we should nag ourselves about other religions that made by mankind. If u think about Islam, u will find that Islam is completing what was started by the other two religions, neither Mose nor Jesus says that "I am the last prophet" but Mohammed was ordered by ALLAH say that. From a logical sense, does not Islam deserve to read about, and try to find the truth.

It's kinda sad that you are living in your own lil bubble and maybe you should do a bit more reading. Dr Syeikh Muszaphar is a Malaysian who went to space in 2007. And he is just one of many Muslims who has gone to space. BTW, there is this thing called Wiki.. And u just need to type, "list of Muslim astronauts". :)

Naveed Bari said...

This is a hoax. Read her interview in India Today three months after her return to earth. There is no mention of Islam or her conversion - rather, she talks about her study of the Gita and her Lord Ganesh idol that she took with her: "This may sound a bit corny, but it sort of grounds you. In a little spacecraft zipping around the earth, you are doing a lot of things, sometimes it feels like work…may be you are taking for granted where you are, what you are doing…things like Ganesha, the Gita bring you back home. It is nice to read about Arjuna’s trials and tribulations and it puts your life in perspective.” (http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/The+real+Ms+Universe/1/1493.html). Then she went to India in 2013 and in an interview she talked about her religion again saying: "In recent years, I’ve started to practice yoga and meditate, something that was inspired during conversations with my father.

I’ve also read versions of the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads, among other religious Hindu texts, which has helped better relate to teachings my father would impart to us as children." (http://blogs.wsj.com/indiarealtime/2013/04/05/the-astronaut-who-brought-samosas-into-space/) and (http://www.ndtv.com/video/player/news/i-had-samosas-in-space-with-me-says-astronaut-sunita-williams/270147). Further, she never went to the Moon. She went to a space station and did several space-walks (http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/williams-s.html). Also, she was not the first Indian woman or the first woman to go to space. The first Indian woman to go to space was Kalpana Chawla and the first woman to go to space was Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova of Russia. This is yet another falsehood spread by Muslims who are unaware of the Qur'an: "And say: 'The truth has now come [to light], and falsehood has withered away: for, behold, all falsehood is bound to wither away!'" (17:81)

What to Say to such idiot who wrote this ..... What is religion , religion is a method to achieve God , none else than that. The way should be discovered by them self none can achieve Him just following others way . Muhammad achieved Allah by his own way, Jesus by his own way , Krishna by his, Rama by his and so on.. Muhammad was the first and last Muslim,it was his way. Jesus was first and last Christian and so on. Religion you follow is just a matter of you , born in a family . So your Religion is not your choice it just a chance.
Religion is not a number game, means larger the follower greater the chance of becoming true , religion is not democracy where majority wins . Rather its very personal , its an interaction with almighty in silence and alone , not in mass.

Friends Discover you own religion , then there will be no need of believing it rather you live in it. You don't bother who is following it.

How can be people s ignorant that if anyone is added to the Muslim religion becomes a big rare news. I said a big RARE news to celeberate.This shows how difficult to get a convert for Islam . You people call yourself Muslims but be matured Muslims if you are one. I do not care what religion one belongs to and I do have my opinion about Islam but that is personal. Any one can takeup any religion in a democratic country. well in Muslim Countries it may not be a freedom. So if some one who is more Privileged in a democratic country using his/her freedom , just be happy and appreciate the democracy which has given them that freedom. Such a pathetic situatin here..... some countries such as Muslim countries can even kill a person if goes out from Islam but they get excited and dance if using the democratic freedom some one comes into Islam. I call it double standard and Hypocrisy of the first degree.

Islam not interrupt other religion. It is personal faith for one. there need to mention that Holly Qur'an is not only for Muslim but also for the whole man in this world. It is universal, it is simple, it is scientific, it is latest, every thing/matter included in this Holly Book. Some issue have to realize with comparing with other thing. Then it is possible to see or understand. Best wishes for all.

Religion is a personal issue. Islam never interrupt. Moreover, Qurun is not only for Muslim but also for the whole world. Qurun is Universal, simple, scientific, latest, logical, unique etc... There has none to manipulate Qurun in this world. Some thing/matter have to realize. If one can carefully compare with other, then every thing will disclose to him. Best wishes for All.
Thanks- Azim, BD.

Who’s to disprove the presumption that this claim is being circulaterd by the very same
group that wishes to discredit Muslims and Islam. Yes, in every group of people, there will be those who carry news without a thought to verify it. Not all people are on the same level at any given time.

I can wager with confidence that this issue will be(is being) used to slander Islam. It’s the same as blaming the bus when the driver falls of to sleep on the wheel. Fools come in all forms mind you.

Hi, my all friend if you a hindu what you are doing,

Thanks sorry for any miss spelt.
