Regarding world religions, Judaism and Christianity will definitely collapse, especially Christianity (I'd rather not clarify on their beliefs like
the Earth being 12,000 years old, and the millions of contradictions for now).
Islam, I believe, will remain relatively intact. Why? Well, in the Quran, it repeatedly says, or points to God being the "Lord of the Worlds":
- The very first Surah says: "In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds; the Beneficent, the
Merciful; Owner of the Day of Judgement. Thee (alone) we worship, Thee (alone) we ask for help. Show us the straight path: The path of those whom Thou
hast favored; Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray. (Quran 1) Ameen.
- "Say "Shall we call those things besides God, which can neither harm us nor benefit us, and shall we turn back after God has guided us - like one
possessed by the devils, who has companions (sahaba!) Who invite him, saying "Come to us?" Say, 'The guidance of God is indeed true guidance and WE
ARE COMMANDED TO SUBMIT TO THE LORD OF THE WORLDS (wa umirna li nuslimn li rabbil aalameen)" Sura 6:71
- Say, (Muhammad) "I am forbidden to worship those whom you call besides God, since there has come to me clear proofs from God, and I AM COMMANDED TO
SUBMIT TO THE LORD OF THE WORLDS (wa umirtu un aslima li rabbil aalameen) Sura 40:66.
- "When his Lord said to him (Abraham) "SUBMIT" he said, "I SUBMIT TO THE LORD OF THE WORLDS" (Arabic: Aslamtu Li Rabbil Aalameen) Sura
The Quran says that God is the creator of every living creature, and is Lord of everything in the Heavens and the Earth.
I also believe that the Bible was, at one point, the true word of God in some shape or form, but that was lost probably a few centuries after Christ
(And the true meaning of worshipping the One God, not a "Son of God", hence why God had the need to introduce one final religion of God in the form
of Islam, and has promised that He Himself will protect the essence of Quran from all forms of attack, manipulation and injustice until the Day of
Judgement. Muslims generally believe in the old and new testament, and Islam is need as the final piece of the puzzle that clicks into place with the
previous two religions, thus is called the Final Testament.
If Aliens came in peace, invaded, whatever - Islam will remain pretty much intact. Simple as that.
Like a guy said earlier regarding Christians - They'd probably kill themselves, and any that remain would stop believing in Jesus as Lord etc.
Regarding the Jews, they probably see the Aliens as the Messiah, and worship them.
