ll praise and thanks belong to Allah, Lord of the Universe. May Allah’s
blessings and peace be upon the last of the prophets and messengers
Muhammad, his family, Companions, and all those who follow his
footsteps till the end of time.
This is the second book of the Islamic Creed (
series by Dr.
‘Umar Sulaymaan al-Ashqar. It deals with the world of the Angels, an
integral part of the Islamic faith. Persons denying the existence of
Angels go outside the pale of Islam.
As usual, Dr. Al-Ashqar has discussed this issue exhaustively. His
arguments are based on the texts of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. He has
covered all aspects of the topic: definition, origin and characteristics,
kinds and their relationship with mankind and other creation. Moreover,
he draws a comparison between mankind and the angels in their
respective roles as determined by Allah. A number of editions of the
Arabic original have been sold out.
We are pleased to present this excellent English translation of a very
popular book. May Allah bless with acceptance the efforts of the author,
the translator and all those associated with the publication of this work.

Belief in the Unseen
is one of the basic tenets of Islam, and
forms an important part of Islamic teachings. One of the unseen worlds
of which Islam tells us is the world of the angels, who are described in
great detail in the Qur’an and Sunnah and who are involved with man
throughout his life.
From the moment an individual is conceived in his mother’s womb, until
his death and beyond, angels play a role in human life. Angels
accompany the human being, protecting him and keeping a record of all
his deeds. Angels bring forth the soul of the deceased person/s and they
bring comfort or inflict torment in the grave. An angel will sound the
Trumpet on the Last Day, and angels will be present on the Day of
Judgement until they accompany people to their ultimate destination in
Paradise or Hell.
Almost all human cultures, ancient and modem, have some kind of
belief about angels. The pre-Islamic Arabs believed them to be
daughters of the Almighty. Some philosophers thought that angels were
the stars in the sky. In modem times there has been a resurgence of
interest in angels, and they feature prominently in movies and other
forms of popular western culture. Stories featuring angels circulate on
the internet and various kinds of gifts, bearing supposed images of
angels, gift shops in the west.
But these myths have no role to play in the belief of the Muslim. Our
beliefs are based on the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah, which tell
us all we need to know about the reality of the unseen, including the
world of the angels. Belief in the angels brings comfort to man’s soul;
this belief makes man feel that he is important in the sight of Allah, and
that he matters a lot to Him; this belief also encourages a person to strive
in the path of goodness. Hence it is of the utmost importance for the
