Book Description

1 Oct 2009
Angels take any form they wish in the physical world. As crystal water takes the form of the cup in which it is poured, angels can take the form of any creation which they visit. They do not retain their full original form of light when they are sent to human beings: "Say: If there were in the earth angels walking secure, We had sent down for them from heaven an angel [without change] as messenger" (17:95). Angels can come as birds, as human beings, or as a form of light like a rainbow adorning the sky. They have a mind and a heart, but no will and no desire other than to serve and obey God. They are never too proud to obey Him. Angels worship day and night without fatigue. They do not need to sleep, as their eyes never tire. They know no heedlessness. Their attention never wavers. Their food is glorification of God, their drink is to sanctify and to magnify Him. Their intimacy is in calling their Lord through hymning and singing His praise. Their enjoyment is to serve Him. They are devoid of any and all physiological restraints. They suffer no mood-changes. Angels inhabit Paradise and the seven heavens. They worship more than human beings because they came before them and they have greater and more powerful faculties than they. They are more pious than human beings because they are innocent and unable to fall into mistakes or wrongdoings. They never ask forgiveness for themselves but always for human beings. This shows us how much they care for us and to what extent God created them to look after us. God made them our guardians because a guardian is more perfect than the one he guards. Angels are more knowledgeable than human beings. The teacher, again, is better than the student. Their knowledge is of two kinds: intellectual and traditional. "Intellectual" means here: "of the essence of reality" or "of the heart." "Traditional" means: "revealed and translated down from above."

4.0 out of 5 stars Islamic version of Angels 5 Mar 2013
By Halime Berkay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read many books on angels and hadn't found one written like this one. I like that it brought together all the religions and in the end Angels are helpers and it doesn't matter what religion you adhere by angels will always be by your side. All you have to do is ask for them. It was a good read and do recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An AWAIR Pick!!! 3 Jun 2011
By AWAIR Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
The traditional Islamic universe is replete with angels who perform various functions according to God's command, and the Qur'an and Hadith speak often of angels and their roles. At a time when interest in angels is again aroused in the West, this book - which speaks with traditional authority and clarity - is a welcome and happy addition to the discussion!
