A pioneering work in the realm of religion and science that seeks to build upon from where the latter stopped short at in its passionate search for the aliens.

Are we alone? Is the Earth unique? Does life or the intelligent one exist merely on this humble planet or it enjoys many more similar abodes across this amazing universe too? Modern science has benefited us in an unprecedented way not only in our understanding of the many vital realities of the natural world it has also enabled us greatly to place a whole host of statements of the Qur'an concerning it in their right perspectives. The ground-breaking insights thus obtained shall certainly go a very long way in resolving in a marvelous fashion many of the riddles faced by the science itself in its own quest for the aliens. Chiefly among them is the scintillating mystery behind the evidence of past surface liquid water and a minuscule atmosphere particularly on Mars. All the more, incontrovertible evidence is found in support of biological evolution pervading not only terrestrially but all through the universe too. A remarkable convergence of religion and science is in the offing, thus. Besides, the readers in general shall, as it touches the lives of each one of them, certainly be captivated by a radically new and exceptionally balanced but hitherto uncharted philosophy of human life described thoroughly and extremely lucidly in the book.
