Angels created from Light?


Hadith followers believe Angels were created from light which is a misconception based on Hadiths making angels seem like one creation made entirely from Light (Nur), Question is can light exist without source? no where in the Quran Allah has made any claim of creating anything from light but Allah did present example of himself as source of all light in the universe.

Quran An-Nur 24:35

ٱللَّهُ نُورُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ ٱلْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ ٱلزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لاَّ شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلاَ غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيۤءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ نُّورٌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ يَهْدِي ٱللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَن يَشَآءُ وَيَضْرِبُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ وَٱللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلَيِمٌ

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly [white] star lit from [the oil of] a blessed olive tree, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He wills. And Allah presents examples for the people, and Allah is Knowing of all things.

The Quran has not stated anywhere that angel’s were created  from light but Quran does state the Satan was once an Angel.

Quran Al-Baqarah 2:34

وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَٰئِكَةِ ٱسْجُدُواْ لأَدَمَ فَسَجَدُواْ إِلاَّ إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ وَٱسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ

And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate before Adam”; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers.

Quran Al-Araf 7:11

وَلَقَد خَلَقنٰكُم ثُمَّ صَوَّرنٰكُم ثُمَّ قُلنا لِلمَلٰئِكَةِ اسجُدوا لِـٔادَمَ فَسَجَدوا إِلّا إِبليسَ لَم يَكُن مِنَ السّٰجِدينَ

We created you, then we shaped you, then we said to the angels, “Fall prostrate before Adam.” They fell prostrate, except Iblees (Satan); he was not with the prostrators.

Quran Al-Khaf 18:50

وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلاۤئِكَةِ ٱسْجُدُواْ لأَدَمَ فَسَجَدُوۤاْ إِلاَّ إِبْلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلْجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّهِ أَفَتَتَّخِذُونَهُ وَذُرِّيَّتَهُ أَوْلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِي وَهُمْ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ بِئْسَ لِلظَّالِمِينَ بَدَلاً

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.

Quran Taha 20:116

وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ ٱسْجُدُواْ لأَدَمَ فَسَجَدُوۤاْ إِلاَّ إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ

And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except Iblees; he refused.

Quran clearly states when angels were ordered to prostrate before Adam, All of them prostrated except Satan and he was among the Angels which explains many unanswered questions regarding who angels really are.

Angel is not just one species but can possibly be multiple species unknown to man and Jinns are of them. Many people would still continue to believe what they are being taught regarding Angels created from light which is a misconception and is in clear contradiction with science, Angel by definition and attributes are species dedicated to worshipping  Allah alone and serving his every command unlike disobedient Humans. Following verse clarifies the criteria for becoming an Angel.

Quran Al-Isra 17:95


قُل لَوْ كَانَ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ مَلاۤئِكَةٌ يَمْشُونَ مُطْمَئِنِّينَ لَنَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَلَكاً رَّسُولاً

Say, “If there were upon the earth angels walking securely, We would have sent down to them from the heaven an angel [as a] messenger.”

Quran clearly states that if humans on earth upholded laws of Allah like Angels in heavens  then Allah would have surely sent Angels as messengers toward’s them rather than Humans which was being said in response to Mushrikeens demanding Allah to send Angel as messenger instead of Prophet Muhammad as a sign.

    سلام عليكم..
    Is it No indication in Quran that Angels are created from Light?

    • admin

      سلام عليكم There is no indication in Quran that Angels were created from Light / NUR, Sadly its a lie and assumption made by scholars.

  2. Aa'esha

    It is not an assumption but a sahih hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam and Iblis was a jinn, never been an angel.

    • admin

      Hadith is non sense and based on assumptions as hadiths were invented by kuffar / Munafiqeen to defame, insult and abuse the prophet and give him a bad image and also to render the quran unless as it was a propaganda against Quran.
      Where in the Quran it says Iblis was never an angel? Verse Please?
      According to Quran 2:43 Allah commanded Angels alone to prostrate to Adam and the iblis refused, We believe every word of Allah is precise and accurate and Allah commanded angels alone not rest of the creation in the following verse.
      Quran 2:34 And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate before Adam”; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers.
      وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ وَاسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ
      Where Does it Say Allah commanded Angels and the Jinns? then why Allah has problem with iblis for not prostrating to Adam when Allah did not command the Jinns but Angels only and Allah is not even speaking to Jinns? or did Did Allah forgot to mention word ” Jinn ” in Ayah 2:34?
      Please do some research before saying something and this is the correct islamic way as Allah is perfect and the best teacher.

        وَاِذۡ قُلۡنَا لِلۡمَلٰۤـئِكَةِ اسۡجُدُوۡا لِاٰدَمَ فَسَجَدُوۡۤا اِلَّاۤ اِبۡلِيۡسَؕ كَانَ مِنَ الۡجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنۡ اَمۡرِ رَبِّهٖؕ اَفَتَـتَّخِذُوۡنَهٗ وَذُرِّيَّتَهٗۤ اَوۡلِيَآءَ مِنۡ دُوۡنِىۡ وَهُمۡ لَـكُمۡ عَدُوٌّ ؕ بِئۡسَ لِلظّٰلِمِيۡنَ بَدَلًا

        I dont know who you are but you are bringing the fitna in the hearts of muslims whether knowingly or unknowingly. You have left islam with your statement above and above all you have the lack of understanding of our deen and that lack of knowledge cant be fixed because of uncuring high opinion of yourself and egoism in self thought by denying the thoughts of great muslims scholars before us – who put the hadith as an explanation of quran. Which was the sole purpose of Rasulullah a.s.w.s just like it was the sole purpose of the prophets a.s.w.s before him as mentioned in quran. May Allah help us.

          Can you please support your claim by any verse of the quran that i should follow the scholars? You want me to be like Christians and jews who took their scholars instead of Allah? First of all Quran is Kitab Al Mubeen which means clear book and needs no explanation from your satanic scholar you serve.
          One more time, Truth needs no explanation and the down fall of muslims is due to poor understanding of quran by your so called scholars of islam.
          Quran is not Clear? Word of God needs your clarification and of your scholars?
          فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْآنَهُ ﴿١٨﴾ ثُمَّ إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا بَيَانَهُ: :19 75
          Then upon Us is its clarification [to you].
