Bismillah, alhamdulillah: to those who pause and think this thought will be just amazing. For life to exist on Earth, we need water. Compared to its next door neighbour planets, Venus and Mars, the amount of water on the Earth is extremely huge. So how did it all get here?

The ratio of isotopes of hydrogen in water on the Earth happen to match that of asteroids in outer space. But such asteroids happen to live very far away from the sun in The Kuiper Belt. So how do they get from there to the Earth?

To bring this about you need the force of gravity to pull such an asteroid in from the far reaches of the solar system but the Earth is just too small. What is needed is a planet that is huge compared to the Earth, in the right place and the right distance from the Earth to direct an asteroid to the Earth. Does there happen to be such a planet in our solar system?

Yes, Jupiter, our local solar system giant, happens to be the right distance from the Earth, right size and orbits the sun in the same plane as the Earth! That is why scientists now are beginning to realise that without this intricate arrangement there could not have been water or life on the Earth.

Hearing this one can only say: SubhanAllah! How perfect God is! The chance of such a setup coming into place randomly to allow a roaming asteroid to be drawn in from the Kuiper Belt by a giant neighbouring planet so that water could be brought to the Earth is effectively ZERO.

سَنُرِيهِمْ ءَايَـٰتِنَا فِى ٱلْـَٔافَاقِ وَفِىٓ أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ ٱلْحَقُّ ۗ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُۥ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ شَهِيدٌ ﴿٥٣﴾

We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness? [Quran 41.53]
