If you've ever wondered how religion views the possibility of intelligent life existing on other planets, according to The Boston Globe the results are varied. Some have absolutely no issue with aliens and welcome them practicing their religion. Other are focused on being God's only children and don't think anyone else is really out there.

Islam

The religion practiced by followers of Mohammed is only for humans on Earth. Other worlds would have their own prophets and their own prophetically revealed religions.
