Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah my brothers and sisters, did you know that there are eight angels whom Allah subhanaw taala has assigned to each one of us from birth until death, and they actually swapped shifts every day at first at a time and answer time. As you know, one of the pillars of our Islamic faith is to believe in the angels of Allah subhanahu wata Isla, for example, the angels of Allah never disobey Allah. They love their Lord and they revere him. They are created from light, the nature of this light is unknown to us. And they are created without desires without temptations, and they are all genderless there's no male or female angels, they are
uncountable in number. Each one of them has a duty. And did you know that they actually supplicate and pray for the people of Earth every day? Allah subhanaw taala says for example in sort of the shorter what it meant
to use bear Hoonah BFM they are been him while I still feel Runa demon feel.
In Allahu Allah and Allah for Rafi name, Allah says and the angels glorify the Lord and they supplicate to Allah and ask Him to forgive those who are on earth. Behold, Allah is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. In both Sahih Bukhari and Muslim, it is reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, angels of the night and angels of the day swap shifts to watch over you. They swap shifts at Fisher time, and at answer time each day. Then Allah subhanaw taala asks, each time in what state did you leave my servants while he knows already? And they reply, our Lord we left them praying, meaning that future time and they say oh Lord, we lift them praying
again, meaning our sort of time. You know, brothers and sisters, this is worth our attention. How would you like them to witness you and bear witness to Allah subhanho wa Taala in these two states? Would you like them to report? Oh Allah, we left them sleeping and ignoring the fajr prayer or the answer prayer, or neglecting their duties or even worse, something shameful or disgraceful. The angels assigned to each of us are four in the day and four in the evening. So eight in total, and there is a Hadith which says that there could be more
the authentic sources from the Quran and from the Sunnah is that eight angels surround us and accompany us as follows. The first angel is the one on our right. It is the one that writes the good deeds. And the second angel on the left, the one who writes the bad deeds and this is evident in the Quran in surah cough first 17 What Allah subhanaw taala says, is here dialogue coil Motorola clear now near me anyone is shamanic gloried
as the two recording angels, one sitting to the right, and the other to the left, they note everything. These two angels brothers and sisters, watch everything you do everything and then never leave your side. Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, Allah Mona meta file one, they know everything you are doing Subhan Allah.
But they are also created to have mercy and compassion towards people. Did you know for example, the authentic hadith states that the angel on the right is in charge of the angel who is on the left, and the angel on the right says to the angel on the left, when the human person does a sin when a Muslim does a sin, wait, don't write it, maybe he or she will repent, and it gives him six hours.
But if they do repent, they forgive it and nothing is written. And if he does, it's written as one, whereas the angel of the right writes your deed as at least 10 When you do a good deed out of the Mercy of Allah. The hadith is also in Bukhari and Muslim about this. Sometimes the angel of the right says to the angel of the left, wait for six hours, maybe he or she will repent. And then as stated in Bharani, that if he or she continues the cinder writer as one and they say they must have no shame in front of Allah. The other two angels is one at the front and one at the back. The one at the front protects you from the front and the one at the back protects you from the back in solid
rod verse 11. It says this Lahore more out the bad man bang in a day haywire in quite an affair. Yeah, follow now home in
they have angels protecting them in the front, and those in the back who interchange they protect them by the will and Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that these angels protect us, but not if a fate was written against us. Then they move on
A and let the fate and color of Allah come through. You know earlier the Allahu Anhu there are people who wanted to assassinated him in his life when he was the Khalifa. And this saw him that he was always okay and feeling safe and happy. They said, Yeah, Imam, why don't you feel afraid? He said, Why should I? When I heard the prophets, Allah Salam told me that there are angels protecting me from all sides. Only when the decree of Allah subhanaw taala is gone, or when the decree of Allah subhanaw taala has willed that I'm going to die, the angels will move aside. A person may ask, why does Allah subhanaw taala need angels anyway? Well, Allah subhanaw taala does not need angels to
serve Him. He is the majestic and the all powerful, however, through at least three reasons. Number one, Allah Subhana Allah manifests His power and His Majesty through his angels. So when you hear about so many angels revering Allah and worshiping Allah and obeying Allah, then you feel and you know how majestic and powerful and great Allah subhanaw taala is, did you know there are angels who bow to Allah from the day they were created, and have never lifted their heads up the first time they lift their heads up, because on the day of judgment, and when they lift their heads up, they say, oh, Lord, we did not worship you as you deserve. The second reason is that Allah creates these
angels for us to make us feel comforted and blessed and honored and important. As you saw the angels make dark for us and the angels watch over us. So you feel important like when you have mum and dad or you have siblings or you have friends around you, to comfort you rather than just knowing that only Allah which is you and he's merciful to you. He makes you even more important with extra creatures. And lastly, Allah Subhana Allah lets us know that there are angels around us perhaps we will feel a little bit of shame or a little bit of embarrassment from disobeying a lost parent either in secret and in private May Allah spent ALLAH forgive our sins and bless your wall was Salam
