Rumor has it that the photo above shows a giant rock floating in Saudi Arabia after the miracle every April. But is the picture right or wrong? This pumice photo is one of the most popular photos on the internet, especially among Muslims.
This stone is known as flying stone, pumice or stone in Jerusalem, among others. Many believe that this is a miracle of Islam. The photo has been circulating on the web since 2010 and has appeared on various blogs, websites and social networks since then. Inside we see a large rock that floats 11 centimeters above the ground.
According to some versions accompanying the image, in 1989 a criminal hid behind this rock and rose (miraculously) from the ground, revealing the legs of a fugitive who was found and killed there.
Since that day, the text says, the phenomenon of levitation occurs once a year, always in April, and is proof that miracles exist.
In another version that appeared on the internet, the magic stone is in Jerusalem! Some Muslims also believe that it is a miracle from Allah
Take a look at the photo below and find out if it's real or fake:
True or false?
The photo is fake. The underside of the scale is forged digitally.
The big rock is located in Al-Ahsa (eastern Saudi Arabia) and is actually supported by three small stones that leave the rock above the ground as we can see in the image below:
While we didn't find the original photo used in the montage, I did find several blogs showing other images of the same rock from a different angle. An example can be seen in the photo above.
