Fruits for the Week


Allah (swt) said: “Worship Allah and join none with Him in worship, and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, the poor, the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who is a stranger.” (Qur’an 4: 36). And the Prophet (saw) said: “Jibreel (as) continued to advise me to be good to my neighbour, until I thought that he was going to make him an inheritor (i.e., of a person’s estate).”

A look at the nature of the Angels

The angels instinctively worship Allah. They do not have the ability to disobey Him. Allah (swt) said:” They disobey not, from executing the commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded.” (Qur’an 66: 6)

3. Their most important physical characteristics

(a) The wings of the angels

The angels have wings, as Allah has informed us. Some of them have two wings, some have three of four, and some have more than that. Allah (swt) said:” All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the only Originator (only Creator) of the heavens and the earth, who made the angels messengers with wings, two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Verily, Allah is able to do all things.” (Qur’an 35: 1).
