Existence of Other Non-Human Entities

The Quran acknowledges the existence of living beings in other realms or spaces throughout the universe. While the term “aliens” as understood in contemporary times is not explicitly mentioned, 42:29 alludes to creatures that live in the heavens and the earth, suggesting a diversity of life as part of God’s creation. The exact nature of these entities is not detailed, leaving much to interpretation and belief.

وَمِنْ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ خَلْقُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَثَّ فِيهِمَا مِن دَآبَّةٍۢ ۚ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ جَمْعِهِمْ إِذَا يَشَآءُ قَدِيرٌۭ

And of His signs are the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the creatures He has spread throughout them; and He is Able to gather them at will.
