To avoid confusion, this is not in reference to astronomy which is the scientific study of celestial bodies such as planets, stars, and galaxies. It is rather in reference to astrology which is typically a practice based on making decisions or giving advice based on the time of an event, such as a person's birth or

observing the placement of celestial points. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad believes that “Adam was born at the time of Asr on the 6th day. At that time the cycle of Jupiter was ending and the cycle of Saturn was about to begin. The affects of Saturn are that of cruelty and bloodshed. The angels thinking that Adam would be born under the affects of Saturn objected and said, ‘Why place on (earth) one who will cause corruption and shed blood.’” (Malfoozat, Volume 1, Page 387)  Furthermore he states

“...there are two advents of Prophet Muhammad, the Muhammadi advent characterised by majesty and awe under the influence of Mars and the second advent in a mantle of beauty, under the influence of Jupiter." (Roohani Khazain, Toufah-Golravea, Volume 17, Page 254)

These disgusting beliefs are not Islam and all Messengers of God warned against astrology. “Say: No one in the heavens and the earth knows the unseen but Allah...” (The Holy Qur’an, Surah An-Naml (27) Ayah 65)
