Beliefs concerning angels and jinn

After creating certain creatures from light, Allah Ta’ala concealed them from our sight. These creatures are called angels. A lot of work has been given to them. They never do anything contrary to the orders of Allah Ta’ala. They continue doing whatever work they have been assigned to do. Among them, four angels are very famous. They are: Hadrat Jibra’eel alayhis salam, Hadrat Mika’eel alayhis salam, Hadrat Israfeel alayhis salam, and Hadrat Izra’eel alayhis salam.


Allah Ta’ala created certain creatures from fire. We cannot see them as well. They are called jinn. There are all types of jinn; both good and bad. They also have children. The most famous among them is the accursed Iblis, i.e. Shaytan.
