Who are the Angels or Malaikats of Allah? They are created by light and they are very special slaves of Allah.
They are different from mankind. They are created with many shapes and forms, no one actually knows about the nature of their creation except Allah and what Allah taught our beloved Nabi Muhammad (saw).
They are not given any feelings of nafs like us. They were created only to obey Allah’s decrees and laws. They are the most obedient servants of Allah.
Each Angel or malaikat has been given specific duties and different roles to perform.
Belief in Angels are the 3rd pillar of our faith and imaan, thus we must know about them. Angel Jebril is the head of all Malaikah, who is appointed to bring wahyu to prophets and messengers of Allah.
Allah appointed many angels to give support to our beloved prophets through the tough and difficult tested times.
Allah appointed particular angels to perform specific duties such as the angels of Rizq, angels of Rahmah, angels to Record our Doings, angel of Death to pull our souls from our bodies when Allah’s decree comes.
There are uncountable numbers of angels, Allah created all of them for certain purposes. All the angels are doing their given duties according to the decrees of Allah without failure and they will never disobey Allah.
It is obligatory and wajib for us to know and remember 10 angels of Allah, their given duties and their names, some of them are :
