Today, one of our oldest questions are answered! ‘Are We Alone in the Universe?’’ The answer is clearly “Yes, life outside Earth exists!”

Many people may not believe this article because it is written from the Islamic view of the universe. However, how can you believe that anyone could just say “Life outside Earth exists; let’s just write that down on the Quran.”

No! The Quran has been sent down from the heavens to the last prophet, Muhammad (pbuh). There are certain people including atheists who don’t believe in religions and may randomly think the holy books of all these religions are man-made. Wrong again! Many Muslim beginners who enter into Islam actually notice a massive difference from man-made words and the words of the Quran. It creates a strong feeling of faith in them and actually cry after reciting the Holy Quran!

So what does the Quran mention about Life on other Planets

Throughout the whole Quran, there are verses that tell you life outside Earth exists. I myself am not Arabic but an Asian. Thus, I cannot understand Arabic. However, my local mosque has an English translation of the Holy Quran and I have searched for the meanings of the verses I have discovered over the internet.

A popular surah of the Quran has 2 hints that can make you think about life and what is to come in the future!

Verse 1 – CREATURES in the heavens and the earth require support from Allah for their needs.

Note:

Please note that the word Heavens does not mean paradise. Here, ‘heavens’ means ‘space.’ You may not have realized that the Earth has 7 layers (stratosphere etc…) before reaching the sky. This has only been recently discovered! The Quran does mention that space is also made up of 7 layers (heavens) similar to that of the Earth. This is not known to man yet except the Muslims. However, the distance of each heaven is unknown. Earth is on the first heaven.

So from the above verse, you can hint that creatures on Earth and in space need support from God for the things they require: food, water etc…

Verse 2 – oh jinn’s (demons) and men, if you want to cross the boundaries of the heavens and the earth, then do flee away, but you cannot go without authority.

From this verse, you can understand that God is challenging men and the demons to travel in space and go where they want to, but if God does not will, they will fail!

Does the Quran mention what type of life is out there?

At this moment in time, scientists are only searching for life which consists of bacteria, cells etc… But the Quran does say that similar to Earth, creatures of all sorts including those that fly, walk on four legs etc… Do exist!

There is a verse I have read which states that God will raise creatures up for the judgement for their deeds! Now we have to bear in mind that the word creatures does not only mean animals. Humans such as ourselves have intelligence to know our deeds which could take us to heaven or hell. Animals are free from these things. So if creatures outside Earth are going to be raised up for judgement, doesn’t that hint you that some sort of intelligent life forms like the humans exist?

Another verse also mentions that Heaven is a similar size to the universe which means that like we are sharing this universe with other creatures, we will be sharing heaven and hell with them as well!

There are plenty of sources for the information. Do your own search on Google as well and find out the truth! Enjoy your internet travel!
