Islamic clergymen have issued a ruling that colonising Mars is un-Islamic. Clerics issued a fatwa deems travelling to the red planet as impermissible for Muslims.
Muslim clerics in the UAE declared a colony on Mars as un-Islamic and issued a fatwa against anyone living on Mars as there is “no righteous reason” to be there. As if they know, They argue that trying to live there would be close to committing suicide and killing oneself is strictly forbidden in Islam.
The fatwa was issued in February 2014 against Muslim participation in a potential Marsian mission has become a source of mockery in the Media worldwide.
This hasn’t been directed against Muslims but rather their “representative clergymen”, who tackle issues they don’t qualify for.
In recent decades, Some Muslim clergymen claimed to know it all about everything. That knowledge doesn’t stop at the borders of their theologian domain. Their domain of activity extends beyond preaching and theology. It extends to other belief and non-belief systems such as Atheism, Judaism or Christianity. Some Islamic clerics claim that they even know more about Christianity than Christians and more about Judaism than Jews etc.
Such self-acclaimed knowledge doesn’t remain confined within the boundaries of belief and non-belief systems. It extends to cover everything. They claim to know it all about medicine more than medical doctors, about engineering more than engineers and about physics more than physicians etc.
They seem to know, not because they know, but because on one hand they said so, and on the other hand they have the audience that listens to them.
