Holy Quran & Extraterrestrial Life

Now about “Life on other planets” God said in Holy Quran

[42:30] 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 whenever He pleases.

The verse embodies a unique testimony to the Diving origin of the Holy Quran. It was not possible for any human being, much less for an unlettered son of the desert, to say, as far back as 1400 years, when the science of astronomy was yet in its infancy, that apart from our planet, life is some form or other existed in heavenly bodies. It was reserved for the Holy Quran to disclose this great and marvelous scientific truth as the words of this verse, of whatever living creatures He has spread forth in both, show. Indeed the creation of the heavens and the earth and what living creatures exist in them and the wonderful order that pervades the whole universe constitute an infallible testimony to the knowledge and power of Almighty God Who has revealed the Holy Quran and Who would bring together the creatures of heavens and the earth whenever in His infallible wisdom He would deem fit.

The reference in the words, He has the power to gather them together may be to the possibility of the creatures living on the earth and in the heavenly bodies becoming united in some future time.

A meteorite with organic compounds (amino acids, etc.) older than the solar system has been found.  Another one like it that landed a few billion years ago could have had a role in starting life on the barren earth.  Another one like it on another planet, given the right circumstances, might have done the same.

My summary does no justice to the article though.  You should read it if you like hte topic and haven't heard of this article yet.  It's a really recent study.
