What's the Islamic ruling about studying astronomy ?

Important subject for mankind.  In the past stars served as guidance for ships when sailing.

Also when positioning satellites,  stars can be used as reference points.

During space exploration, astronomy is very important knowledge.

Nowdays we can predict timings for new moon, moon positions, eclipses, tide water levels, time for prayers...many more.   All through knowledge of astronomy.

Using Astrology to determine the individual fate and future ... not something that related islamic belief.

Anything not specifically prohibited is permitted. As far as I know, all the sciences are permitted to study. Some specific scientific activities, such as cloning humans, might be problematic. The only thing about astronomy that might be problematic is it's potential for military uses.
