Muslims Can’t Live On Mars! A Fatwa Issued by Clerics 2

A Fatwa has been issued against living on Mars by clerics who say that trying to set up home there would be un-Islamic.

The fatwa – or ruling – was issued by the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment (GAIAE) in the UAE after the Mars One organisation announced that it would try and establish a permanent human settlement on Mars.

The committee argued that an attempt to dwell on the planet would be so hazardous as to be suicidal and killing oneself is not permitted by Islam.

The committee argued that an attempt to dwell on the planet would be so hazardous as to be suicidal and killing oneself is not permitted by Islam.

The astronauts, the committee said, would end up dying for no ‘righteous reason’ and would face the same punishment in the afterlife as someone who’d committed suicide.

The committee, led by Professor Dr Farooq Hamada, said: ‘Protecting life against all possible dangers and keeping it safe is an issue agreed upon by all religions and is clearly stipulated in verse 4/29 of the Holy Quran: Do not kill yourselves or one another. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.’

However, Mars One pointed out that the Quran encourages exploration.

In a written response to the Fatwa it highlighted a verse that says ‘and among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colors: verily in that are Signs for those who know (Quran 30: 22)’.

It said: ‘The Muslim world has a rich tradition of exploration. The verse from the Quran above encourages Muslims to go out and see the signs of God’s creation in the “heavens and the earth”. The most influential example of this was the Moroccan Muslim traveller Ibn Battuta, who from 1325 to 1355 travelled 73,000 miles, visiting the equivalent of 44 modern countries.’

Mars One also disputed that the mission was tantamount to suicide.

The organisation said: ‘Space exploration, just like Earth exploration, will come with risks and rewards. It may seem extremely dangerous to send humans to Mars today, but the humans will be preceded by at least eight cargo missions.

‘Robotic unmanned vehicles will prepare the habitable settlement. Water and a breathable atmosphere will be produced inside the habitat and the settlement will be operational for two years, even before the first crew leaves Earth.

‘If we may be so bold: the GAIAE should not analyze the risk as they perceive it today. The GAIAE should assess the potential risk for humans as if an unmanned habitable outpost is ready and waiting on Mars.’

It added: ‘Mars One respectfully requests GAIAE to cancel the Fatwa and make the greatest Rihla, or journey, of all times open for Muslims, too. They can be the first Muslims to witness the signs of God’s creation in heaven, drawing upon the rich culture of travel and exploration of early Islam.

‘The lives and journey of the first Mars settlers will tell us more about our place in the universe than any other humans before us. As Ibn Battuta also wrote: “Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”‘

The GAIAE has issued around two million Fatwas through its Official Fatwa Centre since its inception in 2008.

Colony: Mars One hopes to establish a human colony on the Red Planet by 2025

The multi-billion pound Mars One mission hopes to establish a human colony on Mars in 2025.

Over 200,000 people, including 500 Saudis and Arabs, have applied to take part in the missions so far.

In December Mars One short-listed 1,058 people to take part in trials for the ambitious project.

Co-founder Bas Lansdorp said: ‘We’re extremely appreciative and impressed with the sheer number of people who submitted their applications.

‘However, the challenge with 200,000 applicants is separating those who we feel are physically and mentally adept to become human ambassadors on Mars from those who are obviously taking the mission much less seriously. We even had a couple of applicants submit their videos in the nude!’

Mars lies on average 141.6million miles from the Sun and has an average temperature of -85F (-65C). Its atmosphere is desperately thin – one per cent of Earth’s pressure – and is 95 per cent carbon dioxide.

  1. Islam is not a religion it is a cult set up by a paedophile prophet who says it’s ok to make love to goats and drink camel urine while he married a six year old who thinks the earth is flat and the centre of the universe who believe that life began 6thousand years ago and the dinosaurs Egyptians and all of history before that is an infidel lie this from a man who makes love to kids and goats and say it’s ok to eat your wife yes Islam is a cult founded by a butter that’s the truth

  2. Then who are criminals and who are saints? Is there any difference between them? Those who write criminal codes and paths are criminals, and those who follow that path are criminals too.! Didn’t you find any difference between Buddha and Mohammed???! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 Blanca???

  3. To be a Muslim is a religion.All religions branch off from each other which makes them all similar and I dislike them all. Yet to be a Muslim means..like any other religion to be kind and help each other yet all written by men for men so women get the worst deal. But it doesn’t make a person good or bad because you are a certain religion.Fanatic crazy people often hide behind religion. Just like they burned people

  4. Why are you worried about them, unless you are one of them?.:-) 🙂 🙂 🙂 :-)!! Just kidding.!!! By the way, they are better people than Muslims.!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  6. There is a strange anti-science strain prevalent in our social systems these days, from tea party nutcases in the United States to Islamic clerics in the UAE. What is the most disappointing about all this is that many mathematic and scientific achievements have come from Arabic — and, by extension, Islamic — peoples. And it was Muslims that safeguarded scientific knowledge (for the most part) until the beknighted (pun intended) morons of Europe eventually went through the Renaissance and, later, the Enlightenment. Sad, sad, so sad…

  7. grandpa said that the lady et who visited him had cricket facial features, she would frequent him just to goose him and leave her hair combs with him loooooooool but not sure if he was telling the truth 😉

  8. good dont want to take any chances on sending the wrong people there that would not work not taking that perspective to another would would be an act of war

    • Maybe they’re too busy hating the Jewish people, hating America, and hating and killing each other to bother figuring out how to water and fertilize the ground and otherwise do agriculture rather than “holy” war.

  10. Not entirely true, since the EU banned the use of animals in space exploration NASA have been training Muslims to go to Mars but have found it more difficult due to the IQ difference between chimpanzees and Muslims and have expressed there wishes to return to using chimps stating it would take decades longer to train Muslims to the same standard

  11. A lot of them can’t live on this planet without killing everybody else so 1400s leaders in math science and astronomy now stoneage msn were rocket scientists compared. Just the radicals that is normal ones just same as anyone else

  12. All aliens stem from Satan , we need to wake up as he is waking up his soldiers on earth to kill all those who awaken to Gods truth. They stem from greed and advancement thinking they themselves are Gods. We were supposed to remain simple humble people !

  13. follow your leader go sucide you, you are the reason why humain race are sick !!! vous êtes des parasites du fait de votre mentalité faible, comme des primitifs…. america eleveur de cons depuis 1777…

  14. The committee argued that an attempt to dwell on the planet would be so hazardous as to be suicidal and killing oneself is not permitted by Islam.
    Bullshit, then why don’t you use this fucking logic on suicide bombers that kill innocent people?
    Muslim’s are so damned stupid. On a side note, I’ll live on Mars, if it gets me away from the stupid people.

  15. None of us can live on mars we are to return home God in a spiritual body. We need to wake up and stop being so stupid , these beings belong to Satan and will soon answer to God as well as written.

  16. Do these clerics have to be that backward just as evolution and fun might start to hit the planet. Feel sorry for them. Either full of hate or superstition that’s deevolved chaos. Dunno it’s Blair’s religon I expect a backlash. Allah and Jehovah are both dead in balls deep

    • You are right. It would put you in the history books. However you personally will not share in those accolades as Neil Armstrong and all the others who went to the moon and into space. Every single person who has ever explored space came back to Earth and had personal recognition. Whoever goes to Mars will need to be thankless. For you will never be coming back to Earth.
