Now they will land at the periphery of this region, then they will proceed towards the central mountainous region.

They discovered there is now flowing water on Mars, and while the high mountains of Mars are covered by ice on their tops, so the water - like on Earth - will percolate in the ground to spring in the mountain slopes and the valleys below, and there the villages, people, birds, animals and plants.

The planets are inhabited

The journey to Mars is successful
Sorry to say, but don't hold your hopes up too high for that. What if they DON'T find any "villages, people, birds, animals and plants" at Gale Crater or anywhere else on Mars?

If there really were any "villages" on Mars, they would have easily been seen by the orbiters mapping the surface of the planet. For the sake of comparison, look at Google Earth. Satellites are able to zoom in enough to make houses and vehicles quite visible.

The mission of the Curiosity rover is not designed to search for life. It's to search for geological evidence and soil anaylsis that might contain organic compounds to show if the planet could have ever been able to support life in it's past. That's not to say its impossible for life to exist there now, but if there is, then we're talking about microbial life such as bacteria, not complex organisms like people, etc. Reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode of astronauts discovering a tiny area of microscopic cities and people.

Any water that may reach the surface in certain areas (and there are indeed indications that might be true), it would freeze or evaporate very quickly.

And no, I couldn't keep a straight face when I typed that.

Using a Quaran-sourced Islamic website for scientific information about Cosmology is like NASA scientists using Tarot cards and astrology to help plot their next mission. That is to say: the source is so devoid of science and filled with superstition as to render it completely meaningless and useless for anything even slightly resembling hard science.

As I said before this thread belongs in the religion forum. Or perhaps P&OC. I'm sure they'll have a heyday with it.

I said : Almost they will find signs and indications of life and intelligent life in particular now on Mars.

While I am certain there is life and people on Mars and the other planets and want all of you to keep this and the past posts about water and life on Mars.

The water on Mars: at the start they (including you) denied the existence of water on Mars: they said it is only the frozen CO2. I , according to the late interpreter, said: there is water: rivers and seas ..etc.

They insisted their rovers and probes have checked all the surface of Mars and did not find any water, then gradually the truth became evident: some drops on the foot of the lander, then fog, then cloud in the atmosphere, but they went on insisting: no water: the atmosphere is thin: it is the sublimation.

Then they saw the pictures of the seasonal variation, and said: Yes, it is water flowing now, not billions of years ago.

So at once, yesterday they said: the flowing water had been here since billions of year -- to there is flowing water now on Mars.

So where have been their rovers and cameras did not tell them about this and they claimed they viewed the entire surface of Mars!

While the interpreter did not graduate and did not go to Mars and the planets, and eventhough he said the planets bear life and people with the exception of Mercury and Venus.

The reason for their mistakes:
Mars is far from us, not like the Google earth satelites.
The pictures have been conveyed in black and white then moderation was done in color and other ways.
The satelite of Mars is faraway from Mars, more than the satellites of the Earth is from the Earth.
The rovers and the lander were landed in deserted regions of Mars: the desert and the near-pole regions; because they were afraid lest their machines should be destroyed by falling on rocks, so they selected the plain land.

See this comment written by the late interpreter of the Quran and the Bible:

Comment [about the Mars images]

Keep your words in remembrance some few months later.

To prove my words true about their images of Mars: take any picture and magnify it: it will reach some extent where the image cannot clear more: the resolution is limited and not very exact.

I believe the same can be said for many religious texts.
