Malaikah - The Angels

Allah (subhanahu wa Ta'ala) has Created many different creatures. Some of them we can see, like the beautiful birds in the sky, the Elephants in the wild, the fish in the sea, and you and me.

But Allah has also made creatres that we cannot see! Do you know what they are?

One type of Creature that we cannot see are called The Malaikah - Angels. They are made of light and can come in many different shapes and sizes - even bigger than us!

Angles are workers of Allah. They do whatever Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) tells them to do. Some of them pray and worship and Glorify Allah all the time, some carry the throne of Allah (Ta'ala), some help Muslims in times of need (like the battle of Badr), others sit on our shoulders and write down all the good and bad deeds that we may do. Angels have many, many different jobs.

They are a bit like robots, because they can only do what Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) tells them do do, nothing else, so they are also sinless.

Belief in the Angels is a fundamental part of Iman (faith), just like the belief in Tawhid (Oneness of Allah) and the Risalah (Prophet-hood).

Below are the names and functions of the 10 leading Angels (alayhum salam).

Jibreel: To deliver the Divine Revelations from Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) to His chosen Messengers from among the prophets (alayhum salam).
Mikaeel: To manage man's mundane necessities, bring forth rain and oversee the cultivation of crops.
Israfeel: To blow the Trumpet: once, for the destruction of the universe; and again, for the Resurrection of all accountable beings to face Judgment Day.
Izraeel: Angel of Death, the most fearsome of them all, who does not delay nor expedite the hour of claiming the soul.
Maalik: Guardian of Jahannum (Hell-fire), an unwelcome sight, for the unfortunate and wretched dwellers of the eternal fire.
Ridwan: Guardian of Paradise, who welcomes the Prophets (alayhum salam) and the righteous who have been blessed by Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala).
Munkar : To question the dead on issues relating to his/her God, prophet, religion, belief, deeds, etc. Questioning in the grave.
Nankir: To question the dead on issues relating to his/her God, prophet, religion, belief, deeds, etc.
Raqeeb: Sits on man's right shoulder to record his/her good deeds.
Ateed: Sits on man's left shoulder to record his/her evil deeds.
Together Raqeeb and Ateed are called the Kirama Katibeen.
