    Belief in Angels and a description of their duties:

    2:285 (Y. Ali) The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in Allah, His Angels, His books, and His apostles. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His apostles." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys."

    21:27 (Y. Ali) They speak not before He speaks, and they act (in all things) by His Command.
    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Jibril (A Messenger, the Angel who brought wahy (Revelation) from Allah

    2:97 (Y. Ali) Say: Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel-for he brings down the (revelation) to thy heart by Allah's will, a confirmation of what went before, and guidance and glad tidings for those who believe,-
    2:98 (Y. Ali) Whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and apostles, to Gabriel and Michael,- Lo! Allah is an enemy to those who reject Faith.
    19:17 (Y. Ali) She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent her our angel, and he appeared before her as a man in all respects.

    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Hamalat al-'Arsh, Those who carry the 'Arsh (throne of Allah)

    40:7 (Y. Ali) Those who sustain the Throne (of Allah. and those around it Sing Glory and Praise to their Lord; believe in Him; and implore Forgiveness for those who believe: "Our Lord! Thy Reach is over all things, in Mercy and Knowledge. Forgive, then, those who turn in Repentance, and follow Thy Path; and preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire!
    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Munkar and Nakir (Questions those in the graves)

    66:6 (Y. Ali) O ye who believe! save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch not (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do (precisely) what they are commanded.

    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Isra’il The angel of death

    32:11 (Y. Ali) Say: "The Angel of Death, put in charge of you, will (duly) take your souls: then shall ye be brought back to your Lord."
    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Israfil (The angel that will blow the horn beginning the Day of Judgement)

    Will blow the trumpet twice at the end of time. At the first blow, everyone in heaven and earth will die and the second blow all will be brought in front of Allah.

    69:13 (Y. Ali) Then, when one blast is sounded on the Trumpet

    36:51 (Y. Ali) The trumpet shall be sounded, when behold! from the sepulchres (men) will rush forth to their Lord!
    __________________________________________________ ___________

    Harut and Marut

    2:102 (Y. Ali) They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such things) without saying: "We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme." They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah's permission. And they learned what harmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls, if they but knew!
    __________________________________________________ ___________


    Makail (Charged with providing sustenance)

    2:98 (Y. Ali) Whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and apostles, to Jabril and Makail Lo! Allah is an enemy to those who reject Faith.

    __________________________________________________ ___________

    Hafaza (The Guardian Angels):

    Kiraman Katibin (Honourable Recorders) (Two Angels -One writes down good deeds, and the other writes down evil deeds)

    82:11 (Y. Ali) Kind and honourable,- Writing down (your deeds):

    Mu'aqqibat (The Protectors) (Angels who keep people from death until its decreed time and who bring down blessings and go back to Allah with the news of the creatures..)

    13:11 (Y. Ali) For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves (with their own souls). But when (once) Allah willeth a people's punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, besides Him, any to protect.

    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Malik is the chief of the angels who guards Hell.

    43:77 (Y. Ali) They will cry: "O Malik! would that thy Lord put an end to us!"
    He will say, "Nay, but ye shall abide!"
    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Zabaniah are 19 angels who torment sinful persons in hell.

    74:30 (Y. Ali) Over it are Nineteen.
    74:31 (Y. Ali) And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this ?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.

    سم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Bismillā hir Rahmā nir Rahīm
    In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    Surah Baqarah 2:177

    It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces Towards east or West; but it is righteousness- to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfil the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the Allah.fearing. (Y. Ali translation)

    Re: Belief in Angels and a description of their duties

    Assalaam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

    It may be said that the existence of the angels and spirit beings is as definite as that of human beings and animals. Indeed, reality undoubtedly requires and wisdom certainly demands that like the earth the heavens have inhabitants, and that its inhabitants are intelligent, and suitable for the heavens. In the tongue of the Shari‘a, those inhabitants, of which there are numerous kinds, are called angels and spirit beings.
    Reality requires it to be thus. For despite the earth’s smallness and insignificance in relation to the heavens, its being filled with intelligent beings and from time to time being emptied and then refilled with new ones suggests -indeed, states clearly- that the heavens too, with their majestic constellations like adorned palaces, are filled with animate creatures, the light of the light of existence, and conscious and intelligent creatures, the light of animate creatures. Like man and the jinn, those creatures are spectators of the palace of the world, and ponderers over the book of the universe, and heralds of this realm of dominicality. With their universal and comprehensive worship, they represent the glorification of the large and universal beings in the universe.
    The nature of the universe surely points to their existence. For since it is embellished and decked out with uncountable numbers of finely adorned works of art and meaningful decorations and wise embroideries, it self-evidently requires the gazes of thoughtful admirers and wondering, appreciative lovers; it demands their existence. Yes, just as beauty requires a lover, so is food is given to the hungry. Thus, the sustenance of spirits and nourishment of hearts in this boundless beauty of art looks to the angels and spirit beings; it points to them. For while this infinite adornment requires an infinite duty of contemplation and worship, man and the jinn can perform only a millionth of that infinite duty, that wise supervision, that extensive worship. This means that boundless varieties of angels and spirit beings are necessary to perform those duties, and to fill and inhabit the mighty mosque of the world with their ranks.
    Indeed, a species of the spirit beings and angels is present in every aspect, in every sphere, of the universe, each charged with a duty of worship. It may be said according to both the narrations of Hadiths and the wisdom in the order of the world that from lifeless planets and stars to raindrops, all are ships or vehicles for a kind of angel. The angels mount these vehicles with Divine permission and travel observing the Manifest World; they represent their praise and glorification.

    Re: Belief in Angels and a description of their duties

    Have you ever thought about why belief in Angels is among the major pillars of faith? What makes it so important? What changes does it bring to our daily lives? Why belief in the other pillars - like belief in Allah and in the hereafter - is not enough for one's salvation?
