Wa alaikum salam. No, Satan is a djinn. And [mention] when We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange. (...

Sexes are distinguished on the basis of copulation and reproduction. I don't think I ever came across any references suggesting that angels engage in intercourse or even have such desires. They don't reproduce. Some verses specifically say that they are not female (their context seems to be a response to some non-Muslims claiming that angels are the sex-...

Yes,Quran is For humans and Jinns Only,and that because Allah leave us the freedom of choice, while the Angels have no this freedom .. Allah said in Quraan : "سنفرغ لكم ايها الثقلان "(Surat Ar-Raĥmān,verse 31) "We will attend to you, O prominent beings" and prominent mean humans and Jinns.

Gabriel and Michael are angels and messengers. They are mentioned separately for emphasis. The emphasis is either: To demonstrate their prominence among the angels, since they are the greatest and most honorable among them: they are arch-angels. Examples of this from elsewhere include: فيهما فاكهة ونخل ورمان In both there are fruits and date-palms ...

The ayah should be understood in the context it was revealed. When Abdullah bin Salam heard of the arrival of the Prophet in Al-Madinah, he was working on his land. He came to the Prophet and said, `I am going to ask you about three things which nobody knows except a Prophet. What will be the first sign of the Hour? What will be the first meal ...

If you read the Arabic text of the verse you will find Allah has used the world "دابة" and not "مخلوق" and the difference is that Makhluq is as you wrote for literal meaning of creature, anything created and more precisely being created, but Daabbah denote only a category among all the creatures, that is, those that move, seemingly those that are animate! ...

I have read that angels do not enter any building where there are photographs or dogs. I doubt the authenticity of what is said, because if it were true then one could simply place a dog or a picture in a dying person's room and to prevent him from dying (I could be wrong here). and angel of death is definitely an angel of mercy, if not then calling ...

Broad sense or narrow sense, a Muslim is a Muslim whether one is Human, Jinn or Angel. There's only few requirements: Worship and obey Allah Not to associate anything with Allah To believe and follow Muhammad (PBUH) as the Messenger of Allah. The Angels do whatever Allah ask them and they know about what's being happened in between the heaven and the earth....

The aya doesn't mean that thunder is an angel: وَيُسَبِّحُ الرَّعْدُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ مِنْ خِيفَتِهِ وَيُرْسِلُ الصَّوَاعِقَ فَيُصِيبُ بِهَا مَنْ يَشَاءُ And the thunder declares His glory with His praise, and the angels too for awe of Him; and He sends the thunderbolts and smites with them whom He pleases, yet they dispute ...

In Sahih Muslim bi Sharh al-Nawawi 14/84 (Arabic only) by An-Nawawi, in his commentary on the hadith in Sahih Muslim 37/130, he said that the angels that do not enter the room are the angels that roam around supplicating for the virtuous with mercy, blessings, and forgiveness (Arabic: وأما هؤلاء الملائكة الذين لايدخلون بيتا فيه كلب أو صورة فهم ملائكة يطوفون ...

Well, Sujod/prostration wasn't Haram/prohibited for previous nations. But it was allowed as glorifying not as an act of worship. You can read ورفع ابويه على العرش وخروا له سجدا وقال يا ابت هذا تاويل رؤياي من قبل قد جعلها ربي حقا وقد احسن بي اذ اخرجني من السجن وجاء بكم من البدو من بعد ان نزغ الشيطان بيني وبين اخوتي ان ربي لطيف لما يشاء انه هو العليم الحكيم ...

The name is one, whether "ميكال" or "ميكائيل", But the difference in pronunciation and dialect .. For detailed answer to a question, must first search about Ten novels and seven readings of Quran. It is the differences in pronunciation and dialect only (by Arab tribes in antiquity) the previous verse came "ميكال" in Hafs from Asim novels "رواية حفص عن عاصم"...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSgch9ZuqGk Harut and Marut were two angels sent down by Allah (SWT). They did not teach magic until they warned those who wanted to learn , that they are just a test and if someone learns what they know , they will be kafir. Those who did not listen to the warning and decided to learn it and practice it anyways destroyed ...

First let me comment that the dying instant is not really an instant of time, it MAY be felt as a very long period of time by the person being dying, but not always as it depends on the person being dying. In this period of time many things may happen among them being punishments (not talking about after death, but death itself). Then we have some pre-death ...

Imam ar-Razi mentions in his tafsir several possible answers to why the angels thought humans would cause corruption and spill blood. First possibility is that they made this theory themselves. Possible reasons they made this theory: They saw the behaviour of a previous creation of Allah: the Jinn. This opinion is narrated from Ibn Abbas (RA) and Al-Kalbiy. ...

In tafsir ibn Kathir this is quoted without any reference in the interpretation of verse 11:77: Allah, the Exalted, informs about the coming of His messenger angels. After they informed Ibrahim of their mission to destroy the people of Lut, they left him and set out to destroy Lut's people that very night. After leaving Ibrahim, they came to Lut. Some say ...

From Tafsir al-Maududi: فَلَمَّا رَأَىٰ أَيْدِيَهُمْ لَا تَصِلُ إِلَيْهِ نَكِرَهُمْ وَأَوْجَسَ مِنْهُمْ خِيفَةً قَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ إِنَّا أُرْسِلْنَا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِ لُوطٍ But when he saw that they did not stretch out their hands towards it, he had a mistrust about them and felt a fear of them in his heart. They said, "Don't have any fear: for we have ...

No, the speed of light is not mentioned in the Qur'an. There is no evidence that points to any such conclusion. The tafsīr of the verse you quoted (Surat As-Sajdah 32:5) has been covered by many scholars from the salaf (times close to the Prophet's) and the khalaf (modern times). In his tafsīr, Ahmed ibn Mustafa al-Maraghi said: والمراد بالألف الزمن ...

This a tafsir of the ayah: This does not mean that the stars themselves are pelted at the Satans, nor that the meteorites shoot out only to drive away the Satans, but it means that the countless meteorites which originate from the stars and wander in space at tremendous speeds and which also fall to the earth in a continuous shower prevent the Satans of ...

Ibn Kathir introduced this saying: Al-Bukhari said: "Abu Al-'Aliyah said: "Allah's Salah is His praising him before the angels, and the Salah of the angels is their supplication." Ibn 'Abbas said: "They send blessings." Abu 'Isa At-Tirmidhi said: "This was narrated from Sufyan Ath-Thawri and other scholars, who said: 'The Salah ...

The angels love believers and they dislike sinful disbelievers. The angels praying for believers is mentioned in the Quran. Allah says: It is He who confers blessing upon you, and His angels [ask Him to do so] that He may bring you out from darknesses into the light. And ever is He, to the believers, Merciful. (33:43) The angels praying against evil people ...

If you can read arabic, in this fatwa they said that it is better not to call a girl by angel, and not to name it like this (angel or Malak in arabic). However if you know a girl with this name, then you can call her if she don't want to change her name, because you will be calling her only, not intending to name her so (والله أعلم).

At the time of death, the angel of death is dispatched to retrieve the soul from the person (al-An`am:61). The form these angels take depends on the state of belief of the person. The people around him see the effects of these things happening, but not the events themselves. The angels either give him good news of what is to come or bad news. Death is ...

Iblis is from the jin. Shayateen are also from the jinn. Allah tells us in Surah al-Hijr 15:27 And the jinn We created before from scorching fire. In Surah Saad, Allaah tells us what Iblis said: He said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay." In Surah al-Baqara 2:34, Allah says: And when We said to the ...

ٍٍِSatan/Shaytan is a jinn and never been an angel and the evidence is in how Satan was created. Satan is created from fire and therefore it's a jinn. Whereas the angels are created from light. When Allah asked angels and him "Prostrate yourselves before Adam". Satan refused to do so and in turn said "You create me from fire and I will not prostrate to one ...
