Can People See The Angels?


Questioner: Can people see the angels?

Al-Albaani: In the form Allaah created them in, no. In forms which they may imitate, then of course.

And Ai’ishah, may Allaah be pleased with her, and others saw Jibreel in the form of Dihyah al-Kalbi. As for seeing Jibreel in his original form, then that was not granted to anyone except the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 322.

How many Angels are on earth on the Night of Decree [Lailatul-Qadar]?


لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ لَيْلَةُ سَابِعَةٍ أَوْ تَاْسِعَةٍ وَعِشْرِيْنَ،
إِنَّ الْمَلَائِكَةَ تِلْكَ الْلَّيْلَةَ فِي الْأَرْضِ أَكْثَرُ مِنْ عَدَدِ الْحَصَى

From Abu Hurairah in marfoo’ form, “The Night of Decree [Lailatul-Qadr] is the twenty-seventh or twenty-ninth night. Indeed on that night the [number of] angels on earth is more than the number of pebbles.”

Silsilah | 2205 | Hasan
