00:00:01--> 00:00:36

So then the last panel of data created the angels and panel I remember when I first started teaching the story of jabril there was a there were a few people that criticize that and said, you know, why are you going around the world teaching this class about diabetes? Now why don't you teach a class about it the or Islamic theory, you know, theology creed, why don't you talk about a man? And I thought to myself, somehow Allah, little do we realize that the second pillar of our faith is belief in the angel. So Pamela, when you think about that, that belief in the angels comes only after belief in Allah subhanaw taala. It comes before belief in the messengers before belief in the

00:00:36--> 00:01:14

messages before belief in the Day of Judgment, before belief in Divine Decree. This is such an important and crucial part of our religion, and a Lost Planet Allah through teaching us about the angels. He clarifies to us the integrity of the message as it came down to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, amongst many other things. You know, sometimes people ask why didn't a lot just create everyone in obedience to Him? Why did the last penetrator make human beings as they are? Why didn't he just make us all forced into worship of him? And the answer to that is, Allah already has a creation like that, and that is the angels and each creation serves a specific purpose, it serves

00:01:14--> 00:01:52

a specific cause. And Allah subhanaw taala says, you know, on top of his creation of the angels and the jinn and the human beings, Allah says, Why are colloquium Allah tala moon that Allah creates things that you have no idea about? So we only know about the angels and the jinn allow them what else is out there. But the point is that, that this is the second pillar of our faith. And this, you know, this creation is amazing, and it truly does serve an integral role in our amount and in our faith. And as far as the name melodica Malak, the word Moloch, which means angel comes from either the word mark, which means something that is owned something that is possessed, to indicate that

00:01:52--> 00:02:31

Allah subhanho wa Taala is obviously in possession of this mighty creation. And the other opinion which I feel like is the more correct opinion both linguistically and is tied closer to the text is that it comes from the word and which means Otto Salah means sent and so the angels are messengers, and the angels are not just messengers in regards to the revelation so debate it is Salaam is the messenger to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. But the angels are sent to carry out certain tasks the angels are sent to document the actions of the children of Adam the angels are sent to move certain things to to move the winds in a certain way and so on so forth. They are the messengers of

00:02:31--> 00:03:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they are such a phenomenal creation that they are created from the most beautiful creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is light ignored. And the scholars they comment on that, that Allah Subhana hoods either says, or rather the prophets lysozyme says that allows hijab allows veil is nor is from light. And so Allah chose the most beautiful creation to create this entire species of of nor of light, they're not male or female. So unlike human beings, unlike the messengers of Allah, they don't have a gender. Some people tend to think that the angels are feminine that they're female. Also, what makes them special obviously is like our Sona Lucha

00:03:12--> 00:03:51

amerihome wife, I don't have a model, that they are incapable of disobeying Allah subhanaw taala they don't disobeyed a single command of Allah subhanaw taala and they do exactly as they've been commanded. And this is something that Islam is unique in regards to its belief in the angels. We don't believe in any fallen angels we don't believe that the devil was an angel. And in fact even how wrote and wrote the story of the two angels of Babylon how to do it and my route that taught the people magic what Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the Quran, is that these two angels were not disobeying Allah subhanaw taala In fact, they were sent to test the people and they told the people

00:03:51--> 00:04:30

well now you are the man of necessity. They did not teach the people said magic until they said hatay akula in America no fitna Fela tuck for they said to the people, look, we are a test do not disobey and do not disobey Allah subhanaw taala do not disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala. So all of the angels in their respective role are in full obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala. However, and one of the reasons why I chose to teach the story of gibreel is that sometimes we think the angels are robots, they have no character, right? They just, they just do what they're told they have no character. But we find that the angels have plenty of character, they love certain things, they hate

00:04:30--> 00:05:00

certain things, they inclined towards certain things, all of it within the scope of the, of the obedience of Allah subhanho to Allah. But we find that the angels have character and that character is highlighted in the erotic histogram, obviously, and in the other angels, and because you don't find a single prophet story, except that you find an angel that's mentioned alongside with them. And so this is very significant that we understand the beauty of this creation, the beauty of the angels, and what they love and what they hate and so on, so forth.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Fourth, now Why did Allah create the angels? First? You know, and this is this is a very important question Why didn't a lot create, you know the jinn first Why didn't a lot create human beings first, especially if the angels were going to be in service to mankind to the human beings, because the the angels the realm of the angels is completely independent of a paradise or a Hellfire because they need no incentive. They don't need a agenda, to you know, to motivate them to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala they've been created to worship Allah subhanaw taala right, so they don't need you know, pleasure or pain to push them towards that worship. That's what they do anyway. And so Allah

00:05:40--> 00:06:18

subhana wa tada has created that realm, completely independent of Paradise and Hellfire because they don't even need that. We also see that desire as the mama chef we don't aim Allah to Allah says, you know, desire is the veil between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even the permissible ones serve as a distraction bits from us, or, or they distract us from Allah subhana wa Tada. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala created this entire creation, free of even the permissible desires, they don't eat, they don't drink. In fact, they cannot eat or drink. They don't want to eat or drink, they don't mate. So you don't have angels, Angel husbands and wives that have children. A loss of parents

00:06:18--> 00:06:56

is simply creating them perpetually. They don't get tired, you know, they don't want to sleep. So sleep is not even on the agenda for them a loss. pantai says, You said be hoonah later when the horror afternoon that they glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala day and night and they never you know, they never even feel a sense of fatigue. So they don't even inclined towards those permissible desires, their obligation and their desire are one and that is to please Allah subhanaw taala so how beautiful of a creation that that feeds off of the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, what's what's phenomenal about that all? We said in the beginning of the series, that Allah subhanho

00:06:56--> 00:07:33

wa Taala Allah says about the disbelievers on the day of judgment and the evil people on the Day of Judgment, Malka de la hakkari that they did not give a loss of Hannah to Allah, his do estimation. Now when it comes to the angels, what would be their regret? I mean, why would they have any regret? If they were created to worship the last panel to Allah and if they were incapable of disobeying Allah subhanaw taala, the Messenger of Allah sly Salaam, he tells us that on the day of judgment when Allah sets up the scales and the prophets lie, Selim said that if you were to place the entire heavens and the earth, we just talked about the heavens and the earth, right? If you were to place

00:07:33--> 00:08:12

them into the meezan into the scales, lowers the atom, it would fit them and in one narration, there was enough time it would weigh them accurately, you know, with full accuracy. When the mouse ears are set up when the scales are set up on the Day of Judgment. The angels will ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah O Allah Lumineers in ohada, who who are the scales being set up for I mean, they're afraid, despite the fact that they've done nothing but worship Allah subhanaw taala they're afraid. And Allah responds by saying the man shall remain hungry for whoever I desire from my creation. So Allah left it vague that you also might have to go through the skills that they don't have to go

00:08:12--> 00:08:44

through the scales. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, At that moment, the angels will respond. So Chanukah Nava Tanaka haka robotic. How perfect Are you Glory be to You. We did not worship you as much as you deserve to be worshipped Subhana Allah. I mean that's what the angels are saying who did nothing but worship Allah, human beings mapa de la Hakka pottery they didn't give a lot his due estimation angels can't disobey Allah. So they will still regret at that point, that we did not worship you as much as you deserve to be worshipped.
