Well I hate to disappoint Qur'an only Muslims because this little silly fable is Quranic and you will find it in Q54:1-2

The Ahadith about splitting of the moon are only tafsir of the very sparse Quranic narrative

Oh BTW the smart pagans of Mecca did not believe Muhammad and called such fable: Asateer al-Awaleen or the stories of the ancients!
