UAE Islamic affairs authority warns Muslims against a mission to Mars

To my mind, this settles it: The Fatwa is a bust, the Mars Mosque is a Must.
the Quran "encourages Muslims to go out and see the signs of God's creation in the 'heavens and the earth.' "

It is worth noting that the dilemma of recalibrating lunar calendar based religious observances, is a challenge also addressed by Orthodox Jewish groups. Such paradoxes have precedent since the dawn of jet travel. When does the Sabbath begin when you are crossing the International Date Line? How much more complicated will this become once interplanetary travel becomes commonplace?

Let's make it a point to celebrate next Ramadan's Eid Al-Fitr at my place on Mars Base 1, Colony Alpha. Bring the gang over for Far Out Falafels!

What about lunar hotel accommodations? Is there a Ramada on the moon? Should be perfect for Ramadan!
