Anna wrote a post on Othermatters which I particularly enjoyed:
Marwa, from the purple row, raises her hand.
â€œDoes Allah want us to go to Mars?” she asks. The question takes me by surprise. I do not know exactly what I think, or what to say. “What do you think?” I ask her. “Would Allah like us to go to Mars?” The children in the rows in front of her shift and smile. Ali shakes his head. “I say no,” he says. ‘Because how would we pray? We wouldntâ€™t find the qibla, and our masjid might float away.”
Hamza agrees. “We would have to use wires on the masjid, and even then, our prayer rugs would float away.” Marwa, behind him, shakes her head. “No,” she says. “I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s right. Because, you know, maybe Allah created new things, and he wants us to see them. Allah probably wants us to go to Mars, to see the ayat and pray.”
