Salaam Alaykum sheikh Al-Sahlani,
I have a couple of questions. Is it possible that humanity was evolving physically for some long period of time, then Allah added those spiritual and intellectual qualities, that made them human? Is it possible that Allah could have used another advanced race or culture to imbue humanity with their unique qualities by perhaps something like genetic manipulation? Are humans, angels, and Jinn the only conscious species on earth, or in existence? Is it possible that extraterrestrial beings are Jinn? Is there any credible information from Shia sources about extraterrestrials playing a role in human affairs? thank you, Luqman Abdullah-Wajid
