From the moment an individual is conceived in their mother's womb, until death and beyond, angels play a part in human life. Angels bring forth the soul of the dying and they bring comfort or inflict torment in the grave. An angel will sound the Trumpet on the Last Day, and angels will be present on the Day of Judgement until they accompany people to their ultimate destination in Paradise or Hell. Almost all human cultures, ancient and modern, have some kind of belief about angels.
The pre-Islamic Arabs believed them to be daughters of the Almighty. Some philosophers thought that angels were the stars in the sky. In modern times, there has been a resurgence of interest in angels, and they feature prominently in movies and other forms of popular western culture. But these myths have no role to play in the belief of the Muslim. Islamic beliefs are based on the teachings of the Qur'an and Sunnah, which tell us all we need to know about the reality of the unseen, including the world of the angels.
This book includes topics such as:
- Their physical characteristics
- Their knowledge and purpose/roles
- Their status and speed
- The modesty of the angels
- Stories including angels
And many other beneficial topics!
