1. Subject: Floating rock miracle…

See this miracle….. …….its unbelievable! !!

Surprising Rock

A huge rock in a village of Al-Hassa region, SAUDI ARABIA raises 11 cms from the ground level once in a year during the month of April and stays elevated for about 30 minutes !!!

They say that 17 years ago, one terrorist [for criminal, he was terrorists, but actually Mujahid] was shot dead behind this rock as he was hidden there. This encounter happened in the month of April 1989. You can see the fresh blood stains on the rock. Most surprisingly, when the rock raises from the ground, these stains become darker, fresher and wet. Local residents tried to wipe off the stains several times, but after some time it appears again on the rock automatically. …. isn’t it
astounding ?

Have a look….

Fact Check:

Various stories in circulation allege to show photograph of a strange & mysterious Floating Rock in Jerusalem. They claim the rock is floating in air from thousands of years, calling it a miracle of Prophet Muhammad. The same picture also circulates with other claims like it is in a village of Saudi Arabia. They say the floating rock magically raises 11 cms from the ground level for sometime every year in the month of April. However, there is no truth in all these stories, the picture itself is a hoax creation.

Not Photograph of Floating Rock in Jerusalem

The picture actually belongs to a part of a mountain area in Al-Ahsa, an oasis region in eastern Saudi Arabia. As a matter of fact, it is no way strange than any other rock, nor is floating during any time of the year. One of its pictures on Flickr shows its original form here.


The video below clearly shows the rock and its surroundings, as seen in the picture. As you can see in the Flickr picture and the video, the rock is standing under the support of at least 2 or more stone-like formations beneath it.

On the other hand, it could be a continuous rock formation that has eroded from its base over a period of time. But there is no strangeness or miracle associated with it – it is completely natural rock formation.

So, the picture shown in the story is a clear case of photo manipulation, intended to mislead people. People are advised not to believe in everything they see or read online.
