00:00:04--> 00:00:34

Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters. How do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him like to know is he Junko compulsory for him? Somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.

00:00:48--> 00:01:02

I'd like to know what to do, and do they have free will? Right? What do angels do? They do only that which Allah subhanaw taala he commands them to do.

00:01:04--> 00:02:07

Allah subhanaw taala He has created this huge creation of angels with different purpose. At the end, the bottom purpose is that they should be obedient and worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala. There are so many angels who have got different duties, different work, different scope of work, different responsibility. For example, there are angels who are holding the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala who are holding the urge of Allah subhanaw taala there are angels, whose job is only to praise Allah subhanaw taala their job is only to glorify Allah subhanaw taala their job is only to do the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala there are angels who are there to basically record our deeds,

00:02:07--> 00:03:08

there are angels, who are they designated to pray for us, the angels who pray for us in our absence, are those kind of for those kind of people who like for example, visit the sick, when they visit the sick angels they pray for these kind of people. There are angels who are designated to curse somebody, for example, if the wife denies with no genuine reason to share the bed with her husband, the angel, they curse the angels they curse that woman that wife, there are angels, who has got different purpose and scope of work. Like for example, there are there is angel who comes to take our soul, the Angel of Death. His purpose is to take the soul from the body of the person from the

00:03:08--> 00:03:48

body of the humans, he is being doing this task since the day one, since he was assigned this task he is being designated for this particular responsibility. angels who sends down the rain angels who are responsible to like for example, seraphina Elisa Lam, somehow left his job, his duty is his eyes, his gaze, his look is at the throne, looking and waiting for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:49--> 00:04:47

to give the permission to blow the horn to blow the horn for resurrection. He is the one who is designated for this purpose that he will blow the horn and once the horn is blown blown, the resurrection will begin the whole creation will come to end. When he blows again the whole creation will come and be resurrected. So the angel is Rafi he has this very purpose since he was created. His purpose is to look at a loss of Hano tala waiting for him to command so that he should not delay a bit. He should not extend a bit. The moment Allah gives the command and he is waiting for the command of Allah to blow the trumpet to blow the horn so that everything can come to an end. And

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

then he blows again so that everything can be disrupted. That is the job of Seraphin. alayhis salaam. Angel is Rafi. Similarly

00:05:00--> 00:06:01

The job of different angels have different scope of work, different angels, they have been designated for different tasks by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what do angels do? They do what Allah subhanaw taala commands them to do. Now, this answers actually your second part of the question, do angels have free will, as we have mentioned, angels, they don't have free will. This is the creation who have been created purely, and only for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. Therefore, we do not find good angels and bad angels. We do not find angels who are negative and positive. We don't find angels who obey and this obey Allah subhanaw taala they have the purpose and their creation is that

00:06:01--> 00:06:46

they should worship only Allah subhanho wa Taala. And one of the key responsibilities of responsibilities of of angel is to bring down the revelation, Angel Gabriel, he was assigned to this task of bringing the revelation to the prophets and the messengers. So every creation of Allah subhanaw taala including the in the creation of angels, have a purpose, have a task, have a meaning. Have a sense for this. An angel is a creation who do not have freewill. They don't have the choice. They have been created purely to worship and obey Allah subhanaw taala alone. Hope that answers your question.
