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.
>>39 it can also mean future events known only to Allah. Or things like discoveries about the world we haven't made yet, but this is not part of faith.
>>38 The six Arkan al Iman (pillars of faith): belief in Allah, belief in the prophets, belief in the revealed books, belief in the day of judgement, belief in angels, belief in qadr (divine destiny). Belief in the unseen is not one of the pillars, but it is still a part of Iman and it's important and necessary to believe it
>>18 >What are Islam's views on aliens, other planets and the possibility of life existing outside of Earth? Allah is the Lord of ALL that exists, including aliens, planets, worlds, dimensions, multiverses, alternate realities etc etc that theoretically may or may not exist outside of the scope of man's perception and earth. So it doesn't matter if an alien race light years away believe in some space deity or religion, if Islam is presented to them and they submit, they are Muslim and if they reject it, they are kufaar. The same would apply to another human living in another dimension or multiverse, the race/species is irrelevant, the location is irrelevant. The created being in their respective world(s) and existence is one of two types Muslim or Kaafir (which means any and all things other than Islam).
>>18 The Qur'an says the Earth is flat.
>>616 post verse
>>575 >The created being in their respective world(s) and existence is one of two types Muslim or Kaafir (which means any and all things other than Islam). True. Islam is not just a religion. The natural state of all things dead or alive is Islam. Humans and Jinn are the only ones (that we know about) who can depart from this natural state because of our free will. Everything and literally everything else is in a state of submission to Allah, i.e. Islam.
>>618 >free will free choice, I should say.
