Scientists debate the possibility of the existence of life beyond earth and in doing so, limit God’s capacities. However, Islam teaches us that God’s powers are beyond human imagination and He has the ability to do all that He wills. In chapter 42, verse 30, we are told:
“And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and of whatever living creatures He has spread forth in both. And He has the power to gather them together when He pleases.”
This verse speaks not only of the possibility of extraterrestrial life, but it categorically declares that it does exist. This reveals to us that no degree of advanced human thought can limit the capacities of Allah for He has the ability to create life however and wherever He pleases.
