29:64 "And this worldly life is not but diversion and amusement. And indeed, the home of the Hereafter - that is the [eternal] life, if only they knew."

Pardon me if the question may sound rude to you, but it piqued my interest. What are Islam's views on aliens, other planets and the possibility of life existing outside of Earth? I ask you this because I've heard from a less than credible source that Islam considers other inhabited planets as possessing their own prophets and that all races will converge to the same worship, but I was interested in the topic nonetheless.
>>18 It's not rude at all anon! You're welcome to ask if you have any questions. The basic answer is: Until we discover such life, only Allah knows. His creation is extremely big and complex and human scientists will probably never understand the full reality of it. At least in my opinion it would seem strange that the universe which is so unimaginably large and full of an uncountable number of galaxies would have been made to house us alone. If such other planets with intelligent life do exist, then it's likely that Allah (swt) would have also sent some prophets to them too, but that's only speculation.
>>18 They are known as the Unseen, in which one of the pillars of Islamic Faith is to believe the Unseen.
>>38 The Ghaib (Unseen, Hidden) refers to the supernatural non-physical reality (jinn, angels, etc), not extraterrestrials.
