Have just read an interesting paragraph in Susan.A.Clancy's 'Abducted'. Interviewing a guy from a muslim background, he apparently states that the Koran states that there are two kinds of creatures made by god. us Humans and the 'others'. they can change shape and form. He suggested reading it and there will be proof it states that there are alien beings. Also believing that instead of demonic possession, they can occupy someone, and that people have had such luck in palestine where he was from.
Personally I think most modernish religions are based on some truths, thats what I feel. Obviously the truth that is about these sort of 'facts' of our existence in our region, are limited to that region, otherwise the book could potentially state other types of creature perhaps.

Just wondering if anyone could comment on this? If any koran readers could say that this book says such things and in what context.
Perhaps the guy had the context wrong and only meant higher spiritual beings or something.

Not really a religious conspiracy really unless you consider that perhaps the book hides a lot that it could tell, and got wrong other things (possibly even lies - not that I'm saying that's the case, but like all religious books we are told to believe it all, as opposed to 'consider the following' followed by several thousand pages and ended with 'so what do you think? Are you going join us)

Traditionally, the 'other things' are jinns. These are beings made out of fire, invisible to humans, but like humans, some are good and some are bad. Fortune-telling, magic and sorcery are considered to be done with the help of these beings, but is not allowed in Islam.

As for aliens, as far as the Quran goes, I think there are a couple of verses in the Quran that might propound the idea of their existence, but nothing specific is given. One says "And one of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and what He has spread forth in both of them of living beings" (Verse 42:29) and another that says "Seest thou not that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens and on earth?" (Verse 22:18).

The word used for heaven in both these cases is 'samawaati' which could also mean sky. The heaven where people go after death is 'jannah". Take this to mean what you wish.

matsplat,

Everything in the heavens and in the earth are God's creations, alien beings included.

7:54 Lo! your Lord is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days, then mounted He the Throne. He covereth the night with the day, which is in haste to follow it, and hath made the sun and the moon and the stars subservient by His command. His verily is all creation and commandment Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!

God has made known in the Holy Quran that we are not alone in the universe , there are other beings which he created and they are stronger than us.

37:11 Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom We have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay.

The aliens which you talk about are also God's creations like I said above, there is nothing in the heavens and in the earth that is not created by God, and these beings are made from plastic or sticky clay unlike man which God has made from a clay like the potter's clay.

There are also jinns which God made from smokeless fire and other created things which we do not know and the mind cannot grasp, these are the unseen which belongs only to God.

God has created seven heavens and seven earths, we occupy one of them. Man can never encompass knowledge of all of God's creations, only God knows His creations and He informed us what we need to know in this life that will benefit us in the after life. That is, He made known to us the straight path and the path that leads to destruction and the free will to pursue which path we chose.

65:12 Allah it is who hath created seven heavens, and of the earth the like thereof. The commandment cometh down among them slowly, that ye may know that Allah is Able to do all things, and that Allah surroundeth all things in knowledge.

23:86 Say: Who is Lord of the seven heavens, and Lord of the Tremendous Throne?

I recommend that you read the Holy Quran, a book containing nothing but truth, a revelation from the Almighty, the Knower of all things. Read it and God willing you will find your answer.

2:256 There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower.

Peace!
