Today the kids have been reviewing fast facts on the Solar System. I recently bought a bargain Solar System Floor puzzle in our local TKMaxx store for less than £2.00 and I left the kids to assemble it together while I prepared lunch.
You can buy this jigsaw puzzle from Amazon. It’s a 60 piece, large puzzle made of strong, glossy card.
While the kids were assembling the puzzle, I heard them talking about what it would be like to live on Mars. I explained to them that it’s highly unlikely that humans will ever live on Mars, or any other planet for that matter. I told them the reason behind this is explained by Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen, rahimahullah, in his tafseer on the Qur’an ayah of Surah Al Araf in which Allah has made clear that humans will only live and die on the Earth:
When Allah sent Adam and his wife to live on Earth, He said:
“Therein you shall live, and therein you shall die, and from it you shall be brought out (i.e. resurrected).” [7:25]
