The Angels

Verses about The Angels

Verses from the Book of Allah on The Angels Arranged in the order of the descent of the fence and accompanied by a simple interpretation, as well as with the possibility of listening to it

    96-Surah Al-’alaq ( The Clot ) 18
            
    We will call the angels of Hell.
    سَنَدْعُ الزَّبَانِيَةَ
    74-Surah Al-Muddaththir ( The One Enveloped ) 27-31
            
    And what can make you know what is Saqar?
    وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا سَقَرُ
            
    It lets nothing remain and leaves nothing [unburned],
    لَا تُبْقِي وَلَا تَذَرُ
            
    Blackening the skins.
    لَوَّاحَةٌ لِّلْبَشَرِ
            
    Over it are nineteen [angels].
    عَلَيْهَا تِسْعَةَ عَشَرَ
            
    And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve – that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, ‘ What does Allah intend by this as an example?’ Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity.
    وَمَا جَعَلْنَا أَصْحَابَ النَّارِ إِلَّا مَلَائِكَةً ۙ وَمَا جَعَلْنَا عِدَّتَهُمْ إِلَّا فِتْنَةً لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِيَسْتَيْقِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ وَيَزْدَادَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِيمَانًا ۙ وَلَا يَرْتَابَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۙ وَلِيَقُولَ الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ وَالْكَافِرُونَ مَاذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِهَٰذَا مَثَلًا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يُضِلُّ اللَّهُ مَن يَشَاءُ وَيَهْدِي مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ جُنُودَ رَبِّكَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ وَمَا هِيَ إِلَّا ذِكْرَىٰ لِلْبَشَرِ
    89-Surah Al-Fajr ( The Dawn ) 22
            
    And your Lord has come and the angels, rank upon rank,
    وَجَاءَ رَبُّكَ وَالْمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا
    53-Surah An-Najm ( The Star ) 5-14
            
    Taught to him by one intense in strength –
    عَلَّمَهُ شَدِيدُ الْقُوَىٰ
            
    One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form
    ذُو مِرَّةٍ فَاسْتَوَىٰ
            
    While he was in the higher [part of the] horizon.
    وَهُوَ بِالْأُفُقِ الْأَعْلَىٰ
            
    Then he approached and descended
    ثُمَّ دَنَا فَتَدَلَّىٰ
            
    And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer.
    فَكَانَ قَابَ قَوْسَيْنِ أَوْ أَدْنَىٰ
            
    And he revealed to His Servant what he revealed.
    فَأَوْحَىٰ إِلَىٰ عَبْدِهِ مَا أَوْحَىٰ
            
    The heart did not lie [about] what it saw.
    مَا كَذَبَ الْفُؤَادُ مَا رَأَىٰ
            
    So will you dispute with him over what he saw?
    أَفَتُمَارُونَهُ عَلَىٰ مَا يَرَىٰ
            
    And he certainly saw him in another descent
    وَلَقَدْ رَآهُ نَزْلَةً أُخْرَىٰ
            
    At the Lote Tree of the Utmost Boundary –
    عِندَ سِدْرَةِ الْمُنتَهَىٰ
    53-Surah An-Najm ( The Star ) 26-28
            
    And how many angels there are in the heavens whose intercession will not avail at all except [only] after Allah has permitted [it] to whom He wills and approves.
    ۞ وَكَم مِّن مَّلَكٍ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ لَا تُغْنِي شَفَاعَتُهُمْ شَيْئًا إِلَّا مِن بَعْدِ أَن يَأْذَنَ اللَّهُ لِمَن يَشَاءُ وَيَرْضَىٰ
            
    Indeed, those who do not believe in the Hereafter name the angels female names,
    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْآخِرَةِ لَيُسَمُّونَ الْمَلَائِكَةَ تَسْمِيَةَ الْأُنثَىٰ
            
    And they have thereof no knowledge. They follow not except assumption, and indeed, assumption avails not against the truth at all.
    وَمَا لَهُم بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ ۖ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ ۖ وَإِنَّ الظَّنَّ لَا يُغْنِي مِنَ الْحَقِّ شَيْئًا
    80-Surah Abasa ( He frowned ) 11-16
            
    No! Indeed, these verses are a reminder;
    كَلَّا إِنَّهَا تَذْكِرَةٌ
            
    So whoever wills may remember it.
    فَمَن شَاءَ ذَكَرَهُ
            
    [It is recorded] in honored sheets,
    فِي صُحُفٍ مُّكَرَّمَةٍ
            
    Exalted and purified,
    مَّرْفُوعَةٍ مُّطَهَّرَةٍ
            
    [Carried] by the hands of messenger-angels,
    بِأَيْدِي سَفَرَةٍ
            
    Noble and dutiful.
    كِرَامٍ بَرَرَةٍ
    97-Surah Al-Qadr ( The Night of Decree ) 4
            
    The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter.
    تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ
    77-Surah Al-Mursalat ( Those sent forth ) 3-6
            
    And [by] the winds that spread [clouds]
    وَالنَّاشِرَاتِ نَشْرًا
            
    And those [angels] who bring criterion
    فَالْفَارِقَاتِ فَرْقًا
            
    And those [angels] who deliver a message
    فَالْمُلْقِيَاتِ ذِكْرًا
            
    As justification or warning,
    عُذْرًا أَوْ نُذْرًا
    50-Surah Qaf ( The Letter Qaf ) 16-18
            
    And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein
    وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ ۖ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ
            
    When the two receivers receive, seated on the right and on the left.
    إِذْ يَتَلَقَّى الْمُتَلَقِّيَانِ عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ قَعِيدٌ
            
    Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].
    مَّا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ
    86-Surah At-Tariq ( The Night-Comer ) 4
            
    There is no soul but that it has over it a protector.
    إِن كُلُّ نَفْسٍ لَّمَّا عَلَيْهَا حَافِظٌ
    38-Surah Sad ( The Letter Sad ) 71-74
            
    [So mention] when your Lord said to the angels, ‘ Indeed, I am going to create a human being from clay.
    إِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي خَالِقٌ بَشَرًا مِّن طِينٍ
            
    So when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul, then fall down to him in prostration.’
    فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِي فَقَعُوا لَهُ سَاجِدِينَ
            
    So the angels prostrated – all of them entirely.
    فَسَجَدَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ كُلُّهُمْ أَجْمَعُونَ
            
    Except Iblees; he was arrogant and became among the disbelievers.
    إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ اسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ
    7-Surah Al-A’raf (The Heights ) 206
            
    Indeed, those who are near your Lord are not prevented by arrogance from His worship, and they exalt Him, and to Him they prostrate.
    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِهِ وَيُسَبِّحُونَهُ وَلَهُ يَسْجُدُونَ ۩
    25-Surah Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) 25
            
    And [mention] the Day when the heaven will split open with [emerging] clouds, and the angels will be sent down in successive descent.
    وَيَوْمَ تَشَقَّقُ السَّمَاءُ بِالْغَمَامِ وَنُزِّلَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ تَنزِيلًا
    35-Surah Fatir ( The Orignator ) 1
            
    [All] praise is [due] to Allah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, [who] made the angels messengers having wings, two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
    الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ فَاطِرِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ جَاعِلِ الْمَلَائِكَةِ رُسُلًا أُولِي أَجْنِحَةٍ مَّثْنَىٰ وَثُلَاثَ وَرُبَاعَ ۚ يَزِيدُ فِي الْخَلْقِ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
    19-Surah Maryam ( Mary ) 19
            
    He said, ‘ I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy.’
    قَالَ إِنَّمَا أَنَا رَسُولُ رَبِّكِ لِأَهَبَ لَكِ غُلَامًا زَكِيًّا
    19-Surah Maryam ( Mary ) 64
            
    [Gabriel said], ‘ And we [angels] descend not except by the order of your Lord. To Him belongs that before us and that behind us and what is in between. And never is your Lord forgetful –
    وَمَا نَتَنَزَّلُ إِلَّا بِأَمْرِ رَبِّكَ ۖ لَهُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِينَا وَمَا خَلْفَنَا وَمَا بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ ۚ وَمَا كَانَ رَبُّكَ نَسِيًّا
    17-Surah Al-Isra ( The Night Journey ) 61
            
    And [mention] when We said to the angles, ‘ Prostrate to Adam,’ and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He said, ‘ Should I prostrate to one You created from clay?’
    وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ قَالَ أَأَسْجُدُ لِمَنْ خَلَقْتَ طِينًا
    11-Surah Hud 69
            
    And certainly did Our messengers come to Abraham with good tidings; they said, ‘ Peace.’ He said, ‘ Peace,’ and did not delay in bringing [them] a roasted calf.
    وَلَقَدْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُنَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ بِالْبُشْرَىٰ قَالُوا سَلَامًا ۖ قَالَ سَلَامٌ ۖ فَمَا لَبِثَ أَن جَاءَ بِعِجْلٍ حَنِيذٍ
    11-Surah Hud 81
            
    The angels said, ‘ O Lot, indeed we are messengers of your Lord; [therefore], they will never reach you. So set out with your family during a portion of the night and let not any among you look back – except your wife; indeed, she will be struck by that which strikes them. Indeed, their appointment is [for] the morning. Is not the morning near?’
    قَالُوا يَا لُوطُ إِنَّا رُسُلُ رَبِّكَ لَن يَصِلُوا إِلَيْكَ ۖ فَأَسْرِ بِأَهْلِكَ بِقِطْعٍ مِّنَ اللَّيْلِ وَلَا يَلْتَفِتْ مِنكُمْ أَحَدٌ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَكَ ۖ إِنَّهُ مُصِيبُهَا مَا أَصَابَهُمْ ۚ إِنَّ مَوْعِدَهُمُ الصُّبْحُ ۚ أَلَيْسَ الصُّبْحُ بِقَرِيبٍ
    15-Surah Al-Hijr ( The Rocky Tract ) 6-8
            
    And they say, ‘ O you upon whom the message has been sent down, indeed you are mad.
    وَقَالُوا يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِي نُزِّلَ عَلَيْهِ الذِّكْرُ إِنَّكَ لَمَجْنُونٌ
            
    Why do you not bring us the angels, if you should be among the truthful?’
    لَّوْ مَا تَأْتِينَا بِالْمَلَائِكَةِ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصَّادِقِينَ
            
    We do not send down the angels except with truth; and the disbelievers would not then be reprieved.
    مَا نُنَزِّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةَ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَمَا كَانُوا إِذًا مُّنظَرِينَ
    15-Surah Al-Hijr ( The Rocky Tract ) 28-31
            
    And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, ‘ I will create a human being out of clay from an altered black mud.
    وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي خَالِقٌ بَشَرًا مِّن صَلْصَالٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ
            
    And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul, then fall down to him in prostration.’
    فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِي فَقَعُوا لَهُ سَاجِدِينَ
            
    So the angels prostrated – all of them entirely,
    فَسَجَدَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ كُلُّهُمْ أَجْمَعُونَ
            
    Except Iblees, he refused to be with those who prostrated.
    إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ أَن يَكُونَ مَعَ السَّاجِدِينَ
    15-Surah Al-Hijr ( The Rocky Tract ) 51-54
            
    And inform them about the guests of Abraham,
    وَنَبِّئْهُمْ عَن ضَيْفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ
            
    When they entered upon him and said, ‘ Peace.’ [Abraham] said, ‘ Indeed, we are fearful of you.’
    إِذْ دَخَلُوا عَلَيْهِ فَقَالُوا سَلَامًا قَالَ إِنَّا مِنكُمْ وَجِلُونَ
            
    [The angels] said, ‘ Fear not. Indeed, we give you good tidings of a learned boy.’
    قَالُوا لَا تَوْجَلْ إِنَّا نُبَشِّرُكَ بِغُلَامٍ عَلِيمٍ
            
    He said, ‘ Have you given me good tidings although old age has come upon me? Then of what [wonder] do you inform?’
    قَالَ أَبَشَّرْتُمُونِي عَلَىٰ أَن مَّسَّنِيَ الْكِبَرُ فَبِمَ تُبَشِّرُونَ
    15-Surah Al-Hijr ( The Rocky Tract ) 56-66
            
    He said, ‘ And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?’
    قَالَ وَمَن يَقْنَطُ مِن رَّحْمَةِ رَبِّهِ إِلَّا الضَّالُّونَ
            
    [Abraham] said, ‘ Then what is your business [here], O messengers?’
    قَالَ فَمَا خَطْبُكُمْ أَيُّهَا الْمُرْسَلُونَ
            
    They said, ‘ Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals,
    قَالُوا إِنَّا أُرْسِلْنَا إِلَىٰ قَوْمٍ مُّجْرِمِينَ
            
    Except the family of Lot; indeed, we will save them all
    إِلَّا آلَ لُوطٍ إِنَّا لَمُنَجُّوهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ
            
    Except his wife.’ Allah decreed that she is of those who remain behind.
    إِلَّا امْرَأَتَهُ قَدَّرْنَا ۙ إِنَّهَا لَمِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ
            
    And when the messengers came to the family of Lot,
    فَلَمَّا جَاءَ آلَ لُوطٍ الْمُرْسَلُونَ
            
    He said, ‘ Indeed, you are people unknown.’
    قَالَ إِنَّكُمْ قَوْمٌ مُّنكَرُونَ
            
    They said, ‘ But we have come to you with that about which they were disputing,
    قَالُوا بَلْ جِئْنَاكَ بِمَا كَانُوا فِيهِ يَمْتَرُونَ
            
    And we have come to you with truth, and indeed, we are truthful.
    وَأَتَيْنَاكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَإِنَّا لَصَادِقُونَ
            
    So set out with your family during a portion of the night and follow behind them and let not anyone among you look back and continue on to where you are commanded.’
    فَأَسْرِ بِأَهْلِكَ بِقِطْعٍ مِّنَ اللَّيْلِ وَاتَّبِعْ أَدْبَارَهُمْ وَلَا يَلْتَفِتْ مِنكُمْ أَحَدٌ وَامْضُوا حَيْثُ تُؤْمَرُونَ
            
    And We conveyed to him [the decree] of that matter: that those [sinners] would be eliminated by early morning.
    وَقَضَيْنَا إِلَيْهِ ذَٰلِكَ الْأَمْرَ أَنَّ دَابِرَ هَٰؤُلَاءِ مَقْطُوعٌ مُّصْبِحِينَ
    37-Surah As-Saaffat ( Those Ranges in Ranks ) 1-3
            
    By those [angels] lined up in rows
    وَالصَّافَّاتِ صَفًّا
            
    And those who drive [the clouds]
    فَالزَّاجِرَاتِ زَجْرًا
            
    And those who recite the message,
    فَالتَّالِيَاتِ ذِكْرًا
    37-Surah As-Saaffat ( Those Ranges in Ranks ) 149-153
            
    So inquire of them, [O Muhammad], ‘ Does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?
    فَاسْتَفْتِهِمْ أَلِرَبِّكَ الْبَنَاتُ وَلَهُمُ الْبَنُونَ
            
    Or did We create the angels as females while they were witnesses?’
    أَمْ خَلَقْنَا الْمَلَائِكَةَ إِنَاثًا وَهُمْ شَاهِدُونَ
            
    Unquestionably, it is out of their [invented] falsehood that they say,
    أَلَا إِنَّهُم مِّنْ إِفْكِهِمْ لَيَقُولُونَ
            
    Allah has begotten,’ and indeed, they are liars.
    وَلَدَ اللَّهُ وَإِنَّهُمْ لَكَاذِبُونَ
            
    Has He chosen daughters over sons?
    أَصْطَفَى الْبَنَاتِ عَلَى الْبَنِينَ
    37-Surah As-Saaffat ( Those Ranges in Ranks ) 164-166
            
    [The angels say], ‘ There is not among us any except that he has a known position.
    وَمَا مِنَّا إِلَّا لَهُ مَقَامٌ مَّعْلُومٌ
            
    And indeed, we are those who line up [for prayer].
    وَإِنَّا لَنَحْنُ الصَّافُّونَ
            
    And indeed, we are those who exalt Allah.’
    وَإِنَّا لَنَحْنُ الْمُسَبِّحُونَ
    39-Surah Az-Zumar ( The Groups ) 75
            
    And you will see the angels surrounding the Throne, exalting [Allah] with praise of their Lord. And it will be judged between them in truth, and it will be said, ‘ [All] praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds.’
    وَتَرَى الْمَلَائِكَةَ حَافِّينَ مِنْ حَوْلِ الْعَرْشِ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ ۖ وَقُضِيَ بَيْنَهُم بِالْحَقِّ وَقِيلَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
    40-Surah Ghafir ( The Forgiver God ) 7-9
            
    Those [angels] who carry the Throne and those around it exalt [Allah] with praise of their Lord and believe in Him and ask forgiveness for those who have believed, [saying], ‘ Our Lord, You have encompassed all things in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who have repented and followed Your way and protect them from the punishment of Hellfire.
    الَّذِينَ يَحْمِلُونَ الْعَرْشَ وَمَنْ حَوْلَهُ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ وَيُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا رَبَّنَا وَسِعْتَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ رَّحْمَةً وَعِلْمًا فَاغْفِرْ لِلَّذِينَ تَابُوا وَاتَّبَعُوا سَبِيلَكَ وَقِهِمْ عَذَابَ الْجَحِيمِ
            
    Our Lord, and admit them to gardens of perpetual residence which You have promised them and whoever was righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their offspring. Indeed, it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
    رَبَّنَا وَأَدْخِلْهُمْ جَنَّاتِ عَدْنٍ الَّتِي وَعَدتَّهُمْ وَمَن صَلَحَ مِنْ آبَائِهِمْ وَأَزْوَاجِهِمْ وَذُرِّيَّاتِهِمْ ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ
            
    And protect them from the evil consequences [of their deeds]. And he whom You protect from evil consequences that Day – You will have given him mercy. And that is the great attainment.’
    وَقِهِمُ السَّيِّئَاتِ ۚ وَمَن تَقِ السَّيِّئَاتِ يَوْمَئِذٍ فَقَدْ رَحِمْتَهُ ۚ وَذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ
    41-Surah Fussilat ( Explained in Detail ) 30-32
            
    Indeed, those who have said, ‘ Our Lord is Allah ‘ and then remained on a right course – the angels will descend upon them, [saying], ‘ Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised.
    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ
            
    We [angels] were your allies in worldly life and [are so] in the Hereafter. And you will have therein whatever your souls desire, and you will have therein whatever you request [or wish]
    نَحْنُ أَوْلِيَاؤُكُمْ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ ۖ وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَا تَشْتَهِي أَنفُسُكُمْ وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَا تَدَّعُونَ
            
    As accommodation from a [Lord who is] Forgiving and Merciful.’
    نُزُلًا مِّنْ غَفُورٍ رَّحِيمٍ
    41-Surah Fussilat ( Explained in Detail ) 38
            
    But if they are arrogant – then those who are near your Lord exalt Him by night and by day, and they do not become weary.
    فَإِنِ اسْتَكْبَرُوا فَالَّذِينَ عِندَ رَبِّكَ يُسَبِّحُونَ لَهُ بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَهُمْ لَا يَسْأَمُونَ ۩
    42-Surah Ash-Shura (Consultation ) 5
            
    The heavens almost break from above them, and the angels exalt [Allah] with praise of their Lord and ask forgiveness for those on earth. Unquestionably, it is Allah who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.
    تَكَادُ السَّمَاوَاتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِن فَوْقِهِنَّ ۚ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَ لِمَن فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ أَلَا إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
    42-Surah Ash-Shura (Consultation ) 51-52
            
    And it is not for any human being that Allah should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a partition or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills. Indeed, He is Most High and Wise.
    ۞ وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ
            
    And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed, [O Muhammad], you guide to a straight path –
    وَكَذَٰلِكَ أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ رُوحًا مِّنْ أَمْرِنَا ۚ مَا كُنتَ تَدْرِي مَا الْكِتَابُ وَلَا الْإِيمَانُ وَلَٰكِن جَعَلْنَاهُ نُورًا نَّهْدِي بِهِ مَن نَّشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا ۚ وَإِنَّكَ لَتَهْدِي إِلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ
    43-Surah Az-Zukhruf ( The Gold Adornment ) 19
            
    And they have made the angels, who are servants of the Most Merciful, females. Did they witness their creation? Their testimony will be recorded, and they will be questioned.
    وَجَعَلُوا الْمَلَائِكَةَ الَّذِينَ هُمْ عِبَادُ الرَّحْمَٰنِ إِنَاثًا ۚ أَشَهِدُوا خَلْقَهُمْ ۚ سَتُكْتَبُ شَهَادَتُهُمْ وَيُسْأَلُونَ
    43-Surah Az-Zukhruf ( The Gold Adornment ) 77
            
    And they will call, ‘ O Malik, let your Lord put an end to us!’ He will say, ‘ Indeed, you will remain.’
    وَنَادَوْا يَا مَالِكُ لِيَقْضِ عَلَيْنَا رَبُّكَ ۖ قَالَ إِنَّكُم مَّاكِثُونَ
    43-Surah Az-Zukhruf ( The Gold Adornment ) 80
            
    Or do they think that We hear not their secrets and their private conversations? Yes, [We do], and Our messengers are with them recording.
    أَمْ يَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّا لَا نَسْمَعُ سِرَّهُمْ وَنَجْوَاهُم ۚ بَلَىٰ وَرُسُلُنَا لَدَيْهِمْ يَكْتُبُونَ
    51-Surah Adh-Dhariyat ( The Wind that Scatter ) 4
            
    And those [angels] apportioning [each] matter,
    فَالْمُقَسِّمَاتِ أَمْرًا
    51-Surah Adh-Dhariyat ( The Wind that Scatter ) 24-34
            
    Has there reached you the story of the honored guests of Abraham? –
    هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ ضَيْفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْمُكْرَمِينَ
            
    When they entered upon him and said, ‘ [We greet you with] peace.’ He answered, ‘ [And upon you] peace, [you are] a people unknown.
    إِذْ دَخَلُوا عَلَيْهِ فَقَالُوا سَلَامًا ۖ قَالَ سَلَامٌ قَوْمٌ مُّنكَرُونَ
            
    Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf
    فَرَاغَ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ فَجَاءَ بِعِجْلٍ سَمِينٍ
            
    And placed it near them; he said, ‘ Will you not eat?’
    فَقَرَّبَهُ إِلَيْهِمْ قَالَ أَلَا تَأْكُلُونَ
            
    And he felt from them apprehension. They said, ‘ Fear not,’ and gave him good tidings of a learned boy.
    فَأَوْجَسَ مِنْهُمْ خِيفَةً ۖ قَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ ۖ وَبَشَّرُوهُ بِغُلَامٍ عَلِيمٍ
            
    And his wife approached with a cry [of alarm] and struck her face and said, ‘ [I am] a barren old woman!’
    فَأَقْبَلَتِ امْرَأَتُهُ فِي صَرَّةٍ فَصَكَّتْ وَجْهَهَا وَقَالَتْ عَجُوزٌ عَقِيمٌ
            
    They said, ‘ Thus has said your Lord; indeed, He is the Wise, the Knowing.’
    قَالُوا كَذَٰلِكِ قَالَ رَبُّكِ ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْعَلِيمُ
            
    [Abraham] said, ‘ Then what is your business [here], O messengers?’
    ۞ قَالَ فَمَا خَطْبُكُمْ أَيُّهَا الْمُرْسَلُونَ
            
    They said, ‘ Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals
    قَالُوا إِنَّا أُرْسِلْنَا إِلَىٰ قَوْمٍ مُّجْرِمِينَ
            
    To send down upon them stones of clay,
    لِنُرْسِلَ عَلَيْهِمْ حِجَارَةً مِّن طِينٍ
            
    Marked in the presence of your Lord for the transgressors.’
    مُّسَوَّمَةً عِندَ رَبِّكَ لِلْمُسْرِفِينَ
    16-Surah An-Nahl ( The Bees ) 2
            
    He sends down the angels, with the inspiration of His command, upon whom He wills of His servants, [telling them], ‘ Warn that there is no deity except Me; so fear Me.’
    يُنَزِّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةَ بِالرُّوحِ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ عَلَىٰ مَن يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ أَنْ أَنذِرُوا أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاتَّقُونِ
    16-Surah An-Nahl ( The Bees ) 28
            
    The ones whom the angels take in death [while] wronging themselves, and [who] then offer submission, [saying], ‘ We were not doing any evil.’ But, yes! Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what you used to do.
    الَّذِينَ تَتَوَفَّاهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ ظَالِمِي أَنفُسِهِمْ ۖ فَأَلْقَوُا السَّلَمَ مَا كُنَّا نَعْمَلُ مِن سُوءٍ ۚ بَلَىٰ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
    16-Surah An-Nahl ( The Bees ) 32-33
            
    The ones whom the angels take in death, [being] good and pure; [the angels] will say, ‘ Peace be upon you. Enter Paradise for what you used to do.’
    الَّذِينَ تَتَوَفَّاهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ طَيِّبِينَ ۙ يَقُولُونَ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُمُ ادْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
            
    Do the disbelievers await [anything] except that the angels should come to them or there comes the command of your Lord? Thus did those do before them. And Allah wronged them not, but they had been wronging themselves.
    هَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا أَن تَأْتِيَهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَوْ يَأْتِيَ أَمْرُ رَبِّكَ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ فَعَلَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ ۚ وَمَا ظَلَمَهُمُ اللَّهُ وَلَٰكِن كَانُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ
    16-Surah An-Nahl ( The Bees ) 49-50
            
    And to Allah prostrates whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth of creatures, and the angels [as well], and they are not arrogant.
    وَلِلَّهِ يَسْجُدُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ مِن دَابَّةٍ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ وَهُمْ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ
            
    They fear their Lord above them, and they do what they are commanded.
    يَخَافُونَ رَبَّهُم مِّن فَوْقِهِمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ ۩
    21-Surah Al-Anbiya ( The Prophets ) 19-20
            
    To Him belongs whoever is in the heavens and the earth. And those near Him are not prevented by arrogance from His worship, nor do they tire.
    وَلَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ وَمَنْ عِندَهُ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِهِ وَلَا يَسْتَحْسِرُونَ
            
    They exalt [Him] night and day [and] do not slacken.
    يُسَبِّحُونَ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ لَا يَفْتُرُونَ
    21-Surah Al-Anbiya ( The Prophets ) 26-29
            
    And they say, ‘ The Most Merciful has taken a son.’ Exalted is He! Rather, they are [but] honored servants.
    وَقَالُوا اتَّخَذَ الرَّحْمَٰنُ وَلَدًا ۗ سُبْحَانَهُ ۚ بَلْ عِبَادٌ مُّكْرَمُونَ
            
    They cannot precede Him in word, and they act by His command.
    لَا يَسْبِقُونَهُ بِالْقَوْلِ وَهُم بِأَمْرِهِ يَعْمَلُونَ
            
    He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they cannot intercede except on behalf of one whom He approves. And they, from fear of Him, are apprehensive.
    يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلَا يَشْفَعُونَ إِلَّا لِمَنِ ارْتَضَىٰ وَهُم مِّنْ خَشْيَتِهِ مُشْفِقُونَ
            
    And whoever of them should say, ‘ Indeed, I am a god besides Him’ – that one We would recompense with Hell. Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers.
    ۞ وَمَن يَقُلْ مِنْهُمْ إِنِّي إِلَٰهٌ مِّن دُونِهِ فَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِيهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِي الظَّالِمِينَ
    21-Surah Al-Anbiya ( The Prophets ) 91
            
    And [mention] the one who guarded her chastity, so We blew into her [garment] through Our angel [Gabriel], and We made her and her son a sign for the worlds.
    وَالَّتِي أَحْصَنَتْ فَرْجَهَا فَنَفَخْنَا فِيهَا مِن رُّوحِنَا وَجَعَلْنَاهَا وَابْنَهَا آيَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ
    21-Surah Al-Anbiya ( The Prophets ) 103
            
    They will not be grieved by the greatest terror, and the angels will meet them, [saying], ‘ This is your Day which you have been promised’ –
    لَا يَحْزُنُهُمُ الْفَزَعُ الْأَكْبَرُ وَتَتَلَقَّاهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ هَٰذَا يَوْمُكُمُ الَّذِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ
    69-Surah Al-Haaqqah ( The Inevitable ) 17
            
    And the angels are at its edges. And there will bear the Throne of your Lord above them, that Day, eight [of them].
    وَالْمَلَكُ عَلَىٰ أَرْجَائِهَا ۚ وَيَحْمِلُ عَرْشَ رَبِّكَ فَوْقَهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ ثَمَانِيَةٌ
    70-Surah Al-Ma’arij (The Ways of Ascent ) 4
            
    The angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him during a Day the extent of which is fifty thousand years.
    تَعْرُجُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ إِلَيْهِ فِي يَوْمٍ كَانَ مِقْدَارُهُ خَمْسِينَ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ
    78-Surah An-Naba’ ( The Great News ) 38
            
    The Day that the Spirit and the angels will stand in rows, they will not speak except for one whom the Most Merciful permits, and he will say what is correct.
    يَوْمَ يَقُومُ الرُّوحُ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ صَفًّا ۖ لَّا يَتَكَلَّمُونَ إِلَّا مَنْ أَذِنَ لَهُ الرَّحْمَٰنُ وَقَالَ صَوَابًا
    79-Surah An-Nazi’at ( Those who Pull Out ) 1-5
            
    By those [angels] who extract with violence
    وَالنَّازِعَاتِ غَرْقًا
            
    And [by] those who remove with ease
    وَالنَّاشِطَاتِ نَشْطًا
            
    And [by] those who glide [as if] swimming
    وَالسَّابِحَاتِ سَبْحًا
            
    And those who race each other in a race
    فَالسَّابِقَاتِ سَبْقًا
            
    And those who arrange [each] matter,
    فَالْمُدَبِّرَاتِ أَمْرًا
    82-Surah Al-Infitar ( The Cleaving ) 10-12
            
    And indeed, [appointed] over you are keepers,
    وَإِنَّ عَلَيْكُمْ لَحَافِظِينَ
            
    Noble and recording;
    كِرَامًا كَاتِبِينَ
            
    They know whatever you do.
    يَعْلَمُونَ مَا تَفْعَلُونَ
    29-Surah Al-Ankaboot ( The Spider ) 31-34
            
    And when Our messengers came to Abraham with the good tidings, they said, ‘ Indeed, we will destroy the people of that Lot’s city. Indeed, its people have been wrongdoers.’
    وَلَمَّا جَاءَتْ رُسُلُنَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ بِالْبُشْرَىٰ قَالُوا إِنَّا مُهْلِكُو أَهْلِ هَٰذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ ۖ إِنَّ أَهْلَهَا كَانُوا ظَالِمِينَ
            
    [Abraham] said, ‘ Indeed, within it is Lot.’ They said, ‘ We are more knowing of who is within it. We will surely save him and his family, except his wife. She is to be of those who remain behind.’
    قَالَ إِنَّ فِيهَا لُوطًا ۚ قَالُوا نَحْنُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَن فِيهَا ۖ لَنُنَجِّيَنَّهُ وَأَهْلَهُ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَهُ كَانَتْ مِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ
            
    And when Our messengers came to Lot, he was distressed for them and felt for them great discomfort. They said, ‘ Fear not, nor grieve. Indeed, we will save you and your family, except your wife; she is to be of those who remain behind.
    وَلَمَّا أَن جَاءَتْ رُسُلُنَا لُوطًا سِيءَ بِهِمْ وَضَاقَ بِهِمْ ذَرْعًا وَقَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ وَلَا تَحْزَنْ ۖ إِنَّا مُنَجُّوكَ وَأَهْلَكَ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَكَ كَانَتْ مِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ
            
    Indeed, we will bring down on the people of this city punishment from the sky because they have been defiantly disobedient.’
    إِنَّا مُنزِلُونَ عَلَىٰ أَهْلِ هَٰذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ رِجْزًا مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ بِمَا كَانُوا يَفْسُقُونَ
    2-Surah Al-Baqarah ( The Cow ) 97-98
            
    Say, ‘ Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel – it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur’an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah, confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers.’
    قُلْ مَن كَانَ عَدُوًّا لِّجِبْرِيلَ فَإِنَّهُ نَزَّلَهُ عَلَىٰ قَلْبِكَ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَهُدًى وَبُشْرَىٰ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
            
    Whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and His messengers and Gabriel and Michael – then indeed, Allah is an enemy to the disbelievers.
    مَن كَانَ عَدُوًّا لِّلَّهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَجِبْرِيلَ وَمِيكَالَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَدُوٌّ لِّلْكَافِرِينَ
    2-Surah Al-Baqarah ( The Cow ) 177
            
    Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.
    ۞ لَّيْسَ الْبِرَّ أَن تُوَلُّوا وُجُوهَكُمْ قِبَلَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ وَلَٰكِنَّ الْبِرَّ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةِ وَالْكِتَابِ وَالنَّبِيِّينَ وَآتَى الْمَالَ عَلَىٰ حُبِّهِ ذَوِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينَ وَابْنَ السَّبِيلِ وَالسَّائِلِينَ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَأَقَامَ الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَى الزَّكَاةَ وَالْمُوفُونَ بِعَهْدِهِمْ إِذَا عَاهَدُوا ۖ وَالصَّابِرِينَ فِي الْبَأْسَاءِ وَالضَّرَّاءِ وَحِينَ الْبَأْسِ ۗ أُولَٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا ۖ وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُتَّقُونَ
    2-Surah Al-Baqarah ( The Cow ) 285
            
    The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], ‘ We make no distinction between any of His messengers.’ And they say, ‘ We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.’
    آمَنَ الرَّسُولُ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مِن رَّبِّهِ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۚ كُلٌّ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِ ۚ وَقَالُوا سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا ۖ غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ
    4-Surah An-Nisa ( The Women ) 136
            
    O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray.
    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا آمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَالْكِتَابِ الَّذِي نَزَّلَ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِ وَالْكِتَابِ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ مِن قَبْلُ ۚ وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالًا بَعِيدًا
    13-Surah Ar-Ra’d ( The Thunder ) 11
            
    For each one are successive [angels] before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah. Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron.
    لَهُ مُعَقِّبَاتٌ مِّن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ ۗ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ ۚ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ
    13-Surah Ar-Ra’d ( The Thunder ) 13
            
    And the thunder exalts [Allah] with praise of Him – and the angels [as well] from fear of Him – and He sends thunderbolts and strikes therewith whom He wills while they dispute about Allah; and He is severe in assault.
    وَيُسَبِّحُ الرَّعْدُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ مِنْ خِيفَتِهِ وَيُرْسِلُ الصَّوَاعِقَ فَيُصِيبُ بِهَا مَن يَشَاءُ وَهُمْ يُجَادِلُونَ فِي اللَّهِ وَهُوَ شَدِيدُ الْمِحَالِ
    22-Surah Al-Hajj ( The Pilgrimage ) 75
            
    Allah chooses from the angels messengers and from the people. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Seeing.
    اللَّهُ يَصْطَفِي مِنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ رُسُلًا وَمِنَ النَّاسِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ بَصِيرٌ
    66-Surah At-Tahrim ( The Prohibition ) 6
            
    O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them but do what they are commanded.
    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ
