How Neil Armstrong "became" a Muslim

Ref: http://www.answering-islam.org.uk/Hoaxes/neil.html

Among the many rumors circulating in the Islamic world, the claim that Neil Armstrong, the famous Astronaut, has become a Muslim seems to be one that will never die.

Hopefully, the following statement will help to put this claim at rest. Neil Armstrong participated in the Global Leadership Forum in Malaysia on 6 September 2005. The Star Malaysia, currently the most widely read English newspaper in Malaysia, took the occasion to interview him on his moon landing mission with Apollo 11. In the article, Armstrong recalls moon landing, published on 7 September 2005, both in print and online, one finds this statement:

Armstrong, 75, also denied he had heard the Muslim call to prayer on the moon and had converted to Islam.

The rest of this article, originally written in 1996 and updated a couple of times since then, documents the reasons why anyone would even ask Neil Armstrong such an odd question, and explains the necessity for clarifying this issue.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mid November 1996 the following report reached us:

We have a very good Islamic community radio station here in Cape Town.
The following story was told for the honest truth on our Muslim radio
the other day:

When Louis Armstrong and co. walked on the moon, they heard sounds
in a strange language they did not understand. Only later, after
returning to earth, did they realize that it was actually the azaan!

I have seen a few mosques with powerful speaker systems, but wow,
somebody down here certainly turned on the power on that day!

[Obviously the reference was supposed to be in regard to Neil Armstrong, the astronaut, not Louis Armstrong, the Jazz musician.]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This rumor also surfaces every other month or so on the Islamic newsgroup, examples of one of the more recent appearances:

Salam
i heard that when he went to the moon he heard the Athan (call for prayer)
so he heard it again on earth and he became a muslim, i read an article
that he lives in lebanon now (my country) and his neighbours say he
doesn't talk to anyone... he could have been so famous the
second man on the moon is still famous now, but neil decided to live like
this. Alah aalam (god knows). if anyone else know about him i'd like to
know more.
wassalam

Here two postings on the newsgroup soc.religion.islam in response to the question and statement by Muslims at least informed that it is a rumor, ... yet Gilberto reporting on some other rumor he heard on how the original rumor might have started (rumors about rumors, getting ever more complicated):

Asalam-alaikum,

What I've heard (some time ago, in this group) is that Neil Armstrong
went to Egypt, heard the adhan, said it was spacey" in an interview.
And somehow, that got turned into a rather nice story about how he
heard some strange sound when he was up in space, eventually found out
that it was the adhan, and became Muslim because of the experience.

To the best of my knowledge, he's not Muslim (allahu alim)

mas@crosfield.co.uk (Mas'ud Ahmed Khan) writes:

NO, this keeps popping up time and again, from what I gather
Neil Armstrong is not and was never a Muslim, he lives in the
US and is a bit of a recluse, he occasionally lectures.
Someone told me that he explicitly denied being a Muslim and
does not know how the rumour started.

It is sad that some Muslims make up stories that have a snowball
effect and sooner or later become a "fact" that Muslims boast
about can you imagine what impression we give to those who
know about Armstrong?

In the following some statements about this issue, authorised by Mr. Armstrong, to speak on his behalf.

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

Comments: In our possession is a photocopy of this letter which is identical in text to the above, except that the street address and phone number of Mr. Armstrong contained in that copy are deleted. The above also shows where this idea came from, that Mr. Armstrong supposedly lives in Lebanon. Yes, Lebanon is true, yet this "Lebanon" is not in the Middle East, but in the Midwest of the United States of America.

Furthermore, the following letter to the editor was printed in the Journal Arabia, The Islamic World Review, Issue June 1985/Ramadan 1405, page 5:

A MUSLIM OVER THE MOON?

Arabia is by far the superior newsmagazine regarding what is going on in the Muslim world today. Your reporting is extremely thorough and seeks to be as objective as possible. Your willingness to criticise political policies as well as religious happenings in the Muslim world is refreshing. As an American I would feel your slant on the West is basically fair.

It would be most helpful if you would dispel a misconception prevalent in almost all Muslim countries. From Morocco to the Philippines it is commonly believed that Neil Armstrong heard the Azan on the moon, converted to Islam and is now engaged in the full-time propagation of the Muslim faith.

The US State Department has issued a memo saying that the story about Armstrong's conversion was untrue. The memo said "While stressing his strong desire not so offend anyone or show disrespect for any religion, Armstrong has advised Department that reports of his conversion to Islam are inaccurate." The memo further says, "if post receives queries on this matter, Armstrong requests that they politely but firmly inform querying party that he has not converted to Islam and has no current plans or desires to travel overseas to participate in Islamic religious activities."

N.B. The memo was sent to all our diplomatic and consular posts.

Sadly, as documented above, this rumor still goes round and round in the Islamic world, over a decade after it has been denied over and over again. Not only in mouth to mouth propaganda but it is even spread by Muslim radio stations.

Yet even when the Muslims tell their brothers that it is a false rumor, they are not convinced, the newest newsgroup tidbit is

He perfomed prayers in Turkey in the same masjid where Malcolm X prayed and huge crowd prayed behind him.

salaams,


Is this rumor ever going to die? My question to Farzad would be (as to all others who spread the rumor): Were you there when he prayed in this masjid? -- No? Thought so.

Response the above: [Complaint], [Response]

But never shall they be satisfied ...

Anyway, this person gives at least some references for the rumors.

I thought he did convert. As an American that converted to Islam I have
come across this story in both Islamic and Non-Islamic sources. Two of
these include the book A Muslim Primer by Ira Zepp and another book titled
Defenders of God.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without making any own claim as to its veracity:
The Jerusalem Christian Review (Volume 9, Issue 4) reports about a visit by Neil Armstrong as being a devout (Christian) believer (with more details in the full story).

a. <http://ajnorge.0catch.com/Turkish/Armstrong.htm> atau...
b. <http://www.occidentalis.com/article.php?sid=1756> (06 janvier 2005)



İstanbul İlâhiyat Fakültesi’nde öğretim üyesi olan bir profesör radyoda şöyle konuşuyor:

Batı ülkelerinin bütün ilim ve teknolojide ilerlemelerini sağlayan bütün bilgileri Kur’an-ı Kerim’den almaktadırlar. Çünkü onlar, gece gündüz Kura’an-ı Kerim’i labratuarlarda, mikroskop altında, cümle cümle, kelime kelime, harf harf ve nokta nokta tetkik etmektedirler.


terjemahan ke bahasa jawa...

A Turkish professor teaching at the Islamic university (Ilahiyat Fakultesi) of Istanbul in Turkey speaking on the radio said:
I tell you why western nations are advanced in science and technology; because they take all the knowledge by studying the Holy Koran in their laboratories day and night under the microscope, sentence by sentence, word by word, letter by letter and dot by dot!


---

Bizim çok gerçekçi Basın ve Yayın Görevlilerimiz ise, güzel çekilmiş resimlerin altına yazıp Ay Dede’nin üstünde yürüyen Amerika’lı Astronot Neil Armstrong hakkında şöyle bildiriyorlar:
Amerika’lı Astronot Neil Armstrong Ay’a ayak basar basmaz ezan sesini duymuş ve: Bu dünyada tek gerçek din ancak İslamdır, deyip hemen müslüman olmuş!


terjemahan ke bahasa jawa...

Also, Turkish media teaches Turkish nations by showing the brilliant pictures of the American Astronaut Neil Armstrong walking on the moon by declaring:
As soon as Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon, he heard the Moslem call of Ezan (call to prayer) as ‘Allah-hu-akber’ then, he said: ‘the real religion in the whole world is only Islam and immediately he became Moslem!


---

Bu durumları bilen kişiler olarak, Türk ve Arap basınlarında, gazete ve mecmualarda Astronot Armstrong için basılan güzel resimlerin altına yazılan gün-görmemiş yalanları, hep İngilizce diline çevirip onun Washington, D.C. USA adresine gönderdiğimiz zaman, nezaketle bizlere cevap verip şöyle yazıyor:
Dear brothers we must pray for our Moslem friends, because they have been kept ignorant with all manners of false information in all ages of their Moslem history!


terjemahan ke bahasa jawa...

When we cut the pictures of Mr. Neil Armstrong from Turkish newspapers and Arabic magazines we translated the reports about him how he became a Moslem on the moon and sent them to his address in Washington, DC . He kindly answered us with a letter writing:
Dear brothers we must pray for our Moslem friends, because they have been kept ignorant with all manners of false information in all ages of their Moslem history!
