In Islam, the creed is directly taken from the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the prophet (SAW)
unlike any other religion. There are only three ways someone can believe something:
See it (this is obvious)
See a similar thing (also obvious)
Listen to someone trustworthy (e.g. The Qur'an and Sunnah).
The famous Hadeeth: Hadeeth Jibreel
Angel Jibreel (Gabriel) came to prophet (SAW) while he was sitting with his companion. Umar
(RA) described that he was wearing very white cloth and had dark hair. There were no signs of
travel in him. He sat close to the prophet (SAW) and
He said, "Tell me about eman."
He (the prophet SAW) replied, "It is to believe in Allah, His
Angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Last Day, and to
believe in Divine Destiny (Al-Qadar), both the good and the evil
He said, "You have spoken rightly."
The scholars divide the belief into these 6 (six) categories, i.e. believing in
The Last Day
Al-Qadar (Divine Destiny).
The first pillar of Eemaan i.e. believing in Allah SWT is covered in detail in two separate
AlMaghrib aqeedah courses. The focus of this seminar is ‘belief in the five remaining pillars of
Eemaan’. Sheikh Waleed mentioned that the purpose of this seminar is to make us familiar
with the Unseen world as these five pillars are from the unseen world. Even though the people
in their time met the respective Messenger, to us it is also from the unseen. Sheikh also
included the discussion about the Jinn since this also is part of the unseen world.
THE RAYS OF FAITH OPENING
In addition to proofs from the Qur’an and the Sunnah, sheikh tried to include a rich mixture of
intellectual material, heart-softening topics, and interesting stories; serious, funny and even
Linguistic Definition of Mala'ikah:
First opinion: Plural of malak. Where ‘malak’ means great strength.
Second opinion, it is from (al-alooka = the message). This is because angels carry out Allah’s
messages or commands.
Some scholars say it is from (al-maalik = owner).
Angels are created from light and they carry out Allah SWT’s commands.
A COMMON MISCONCEPTION: Angels are creatures of light that have
no physical attributes.
Some people think that the Angels are really not there and that they have no physical form.
There are so many verses in the Qur’an that show that the Angels have physical descriptions
such as voices, hands, and wings.
As Allah SWT says in the following verse:
And if you could but see when the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.) are in the agonies
of death, while the angels are stretching forth their hands (saying): "Deliver your souls! This day
you shall be recompensed with the torment of degradation because of what you used to utter
against Allah other than the truth. And you used to reject His Ayat with disrespect!" [6:93]
'Aishah (RA) narrates that the prophet SAW said, "The angels were created from light,
and the jinn were created from a smokeless flame of fire, Adam was created of
what has been described to you." [Muslim]
They are made from light but not that they are light themselves. A similar comparison can be
given for human beings. We are created from clay whereas we ourselves are not clay-like,
rather we have flesh and bone body structure.
How do others view of angels?
THE PHILOSOPHERS' VIEW: Figment of prophets' imagination.
THE PAGAN ARAB VIEW: Spouses/daughters of Allah.
And they make the angels who themselves are slaves to the Most Beneficent (Allah) females.
Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be questioned!
Rays of Faith. A seminar to enlighten the minds and hearts, as we continue on our journey towards Allah SWT and explore the deeper meanings of the last five of the six articles of Islamic faith: Angels, Divine Books, Messengers, the Day of Judgment and AlQadar.
