Abstract: “And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority. They said, Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You? Allah (GOD) said, Indeed, I know that which you do not know.” [1] God created humankind on Earth for two reasons, the first for worship Him alone, and the second for the development, and use of the earth to the fullest extent. Then God made death inevitable on all creatures, after death, God made the Day of Resurrection, which is also the Day of Judgment (Doomsday), in which God will judge all creation for their good or evil during their lives in the earth. God did not leave humans working in the earth on their own, but sent for them guidance as messengers and prophets, to show and lead them to the right path, which He drew to them and gave them the holy books that approach to God and his right way for the good of the earth and mankind and everything created by God without injustice or detract from the right one. On the planet Earth, man saw the natural phenomena around him from earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, rivers and seas, floods, the cycles of the night and the day, the succession of seasons and the fluctuation of heat and cold. He (mankind) saw in the sky, the appearance of planets and stars at different times, and began to worship some planetsand other natural phenomena around him, as an example, ancient Egyptians worshipped Sirius Star, for its appearance was related to the flooding season of the Nile, which meant to them work and prosperity. [2] The Assyrians worshipped the Sun, while others worshipped the moon, fire, cows …Etc. Ancient ancestor, linked the positions of the stars in the sky with imaginary lines. They formed many constellations and they named it after famous animals and insects, like Taurus, Leo, Aries, and Scorpio or after famous names such as Virgo; The Zodiac circle was divided into twelve sectors each of 30° describes the movement of Sun, Earth, Moon and the other Solar planets and their alignment with the constellations in the sky. Man became linked in his life and fate to these constellations and the times of their appearance, thinking that they help him to have control on earth resources. To the present day, inspite of with the scientific progress achieved by man and the advanced civilization we are in, we find those who believe in the constellations and alter them in their lives as the source of happiness or misery.
