Summary Washington: A space exploration company is planning to send four people on a one-way trip to Mars to fight against the fatwa issued by Islamic authorities which mentions that the trip was akin to suicide. The GAIAE recently banned Muslims from participating in the mission and took the issue with Mars One's plan by calling it tantamount to suicide. The fatwa said that such a one-way journey poses a real risk to life, and that can never be justified in Islam and there is a possibility that an individual who travels to Mars may not be able to remain alive there, and is more vulnerable to death.
