ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP, (http://aljumaareminder.com/), when leaders speak about angels:

WHY DID FIR’AUN MENTION ANGELS AND WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE?

And Fir’aun (Pharaoh) proclaimed among his people, saying: “O my people! Is not mine the dominion of Egypt, and these rivers flowing underneath me. See you not then? Am I not better than this one [Musa (Moses)], who is Mahin [has no honour nor any respect, and is weak and despicable] and can scarcely express himself clearly? Why then are not golden bracelets bestowed on him, or angels sent along with him?” (Qur’an 43:51-53)

Thus he [Fir’aun (Pharaoh)] befooled and misled his people, and they obeyed him. Verily, they were ever a people who were Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). So when they angered Us, We punished them, and drowned them all. And We made them a precedent (as a lesson for those coming after them), and an example to later generations. (Qur’an 43:54-56)

A lot of lessons can be derived from (Qur’an 43:51-56) that we believe even books can be made from these Ayats alone. We are going to give you a glimpse of only why Fir’aun mentioned angels and the significance of it; but this article though focusing only on that will surely not cover everything because the Ayats of Allah are that deep.

There are six pillars of Faith: (1) Belief in Allah (2) Belief in His Angels (3) Belief in His Messengers (4) Belief in His Books (5) Belief in the Last Day (6) Belief in Al-Qadr (Pre-Ordainment). And it is quite obvious from (Qur’an 2:177), (Qur’an 2:285) etc that this (list of 6 pillars of Faith) is the order of belief which leads to guidance. For example you cannot believe in angels unless you believe in Allah. You cannot believe in Allah’s Messengers unless you believe in the angels and the Books of Allah that they deliver to them and so on.

We all know that via (Qur’an 27:14) that Fir’aun was convinced of Allah’s existence but he denied it many times. He even went as far as claiming all of Allah’s attributes mentioned in the 114th Surah for himself. In (Qur’an 79:24) he claimed the title of Rabb mentioned in (Qur’an 114:1). In (Qur’an 43:51) he claimed the title of King mentioned in (Qur’an 114:2) by claiming that the kingdom belongs to him. In (Qur’an 28:38) he even went as far as to claim the title of Ilah (God) mentioned in (Qur’an 114:3). So it is evidently clear that this man doesn’t want to acknowledge Allah.

We know that Fir’aun denied many Messengers such as Yusuf, Musa, Harun and possibly many other more which literally means that he denied all Messengers. Denying even one Messenger of Allah is the same as denying all the Messengers of Allah. They (Fir’aun and other disbelievers) most likely had a Scripture from Allah which they were ignoring as evidenced from (Qur’an 40:30-34) {where the many Prophets of old were mentioned}. The Scripture may have been corrupted but it seems that it still had traces of uncorrupted Ayat. Allah knows Best if they had a scripture or not but we know that the believing man must have quoted these facts (about the people of Nuh (Noah), Ad and Thamud and those who came after them) from a Scripture or from a Messenger of Allah.

Nevertheless we can all agree that Fir’aun purposely denied and didn’t acknowledge all six pillars of Faith except one. Which one? Yes the belief in Angels. What is surprising is that Fir’aun mentioned Angels in front of many people and did not at all try to crush this pillar of Faith. Why is he speaking about this topic casually without worry while addressing such a large crowd?

Also notice that the matter related most to the unseen (ghaib) was placed last. The kingdom could be seen, the fact that outwardly Fir’aun looked better than Musa was seen and the fact that gold bracelets can be seen are all matters of the seen. The last part of his speech was about the angels which was from the unseen showing that he didn’t consider it a great point but mentioned it anyway. When doing exams or speeches we place our best points in the beginning and the least reliable points we place last.  Ironically; this speech also shows that he did not believe in the unseen because as we all know that angel Jibrael brought Revelations to Musa and each of us has angels recording our deeds. Eg see (Qur’an 2:97-98), (Qur’an 13:11), (Qur’an 41:30-31). If he believed in angels he would surely know that everyone has angels and not make an ignorant claim that Musa was not sent with angels. Musa was sent with angels and the ultimate proof can be seen in (Qur’an 72:26-28).

The fact that angels were mentioned to the public indicates that Fir’aun expected the public to know about angels and that the public also actually knew about angels. This pretty much proves that Yusuf delivered the Message and clear proofs as seen in the 40th Surah. Even in Yusuf’s time when he was still not known much in Egypt, it seems that the people knew about angels since the women who cut their hands spoke of Yusuf as if he was a noble angel which means the town also had received the guidance most likely from a previous or/and already existing Messenger. Remember a town/city can have more than one Messenger as seen in (Qur’an 36:13-14).

But if the public knew about angels, why didn’t they believe and follow the scriptures (not the corrupted part of the scriptures) the brought to the Messengers. Why didn’t the people who know about angels follow the truth? It is just like nowadays where an even a president can casually speak about an angel in his speech and the people are not moved; they are not moved even when they are told by a corrupt person to think deeply. Notice that Fir’aun in (Qur’an 43:51) actually asked the people why they won’t see (reflect) which is similar to Allah asking us why we won’t see (reflect) in (Qur’an 51:21) and similar our Messenger asking us why we won’t see (reflect) in (Qur’an 28:72). Let us take an example of the people of the scripture; they have knowledge from their scriptures about angels and through their scriptures there is enough proof to guide them to Islam to know the truth about angels but they reject the truth and have no choice but to follow the devil’s system; whether they realize it or not. Kindly see: http://aljumaareminder.com/reminder/174-iarlg-prophet-muhammad-is-prophesized-in-buddhist-hindu-and-parsi-scriptures-date-23rd-june-2017-27th-or-28th-ramadan-1438/

Fir’aun probably followed a tainted version of what Angels were. Eg in the book “Angels and the Keys to Paradise: Ancient Egyptian Codes to Open Your Door to Heaven” we see it leads to (Qur’an 34:40-41). Even today many evil people believe they are working with angels while they are in fact working with the jinn. They reject the truth and of course they will have no choice but to follow the jinn (mainly Iblis). Kindly see: http://aljumaareminder.com/reminder/the-impact-of-jinns-on-mankind-7-worshiping-angels-who-in-reality-are-jinns-date-28th-august-2015-12th-or-13th-dhu-al-qada-1436/

And (remember) the Day when He will gather them all together, and then will say to the angels: “Was it you that these people used to worship?” They (angels) will say: “Glorified be You! You are our Wali (Lord) instead of them. Nay, but they used to worship the jinns; most of them were believers in them.” (Qur’an 34:40-41)

Fir’aun took great pride in his magicians meaning he believed in the unseen jinns.  It is quite reasonable to see that since Fir’aun believed in himself as a god the following must/may have occurred:

  • He believed that the heavens chose him and sent angels to give him power and keep him in power
  • The so-called angels Fir’aun believed in were in reality jinns probably identifying themselves as fallen angels
  • The jinns helped the magicians which in turned helped Fir’aun stay in power
  • Fir’aun most likely believed in Iblis (and even Dajjal) as god(s) who made him god on earth. He believed in them because he wanted the dunya; if he followed Musa’s Message (which was from Allah) he would have to give up a lot of things and that is why he disbelieved in them. See (Qur’an 10:78)

 

Why do think there is either only going to Paradise or Hell in the Hereafter? There is no 3rd choice. It is either you are with the party of Allah or with the party Satan. [Note that Muslims can go to Hell for a period of time and come out to enter Paradise but there is no way a disbeliever can enter Paradise and go to Hell as seen in the many proofs]. That is why we believe by reading (Qur’an 2:101-103) that people if they reject following Allah’s Messenger will inevitably end up worshipping Satan no matter what. Those who claim are following their own selves are fact following Satanism which is again worshipping Satan. See http://aljumaareminder.com/reminder/you-may-be-practing-satanism-unknowingly-date-16th-may-2014-16th17th-rajab-1435/

If you have read our previous article then you realize how the majority of us are stuck in a democracy shirk system which almost everyone is okay with. To understand more; please read our 145th article; http://aljumaareminder.com/reminder/145-iarlg-one-of-the-biggest-sign-and-warning-to-gog-and-magog-date-2nd-december-2016-2nd-or-3rd-rabi-awwal-1438/

The similarity we can note from Fir’aun’s system of rule to our everyday life is that no matter what the people or rulers say about any of the 6 pillars of Faith; they will still stick with the shirk democratic constitution which disregards Allah as an authority. Just like Fir’aun disregards the attributes of Allah in (Qur’an 114:1-3); the way of life of the kufr democratic constitution also disregards the attributes of Allah in (Qur’an 114:1-3).

Why was the word “sent” in “angels sent with him” used as “jaaa” in (Qur’an 43:53). Fir’aun wanted a grand appearance of the angels which he got when he died {see (Qur’an 10:90-92), (Qur’an 6:93) & (Qur’an 8:50-52)}. The angels came and took his soul away. To conclude all this please let us look at what Allah says in (Qur’an 6:111-116)

And even if We had sent down unto them angels, and the dead had spoken unto them, and We had gathered together all things before their very eyes, they would not have believed, unless Allah willed, but most of them behave ignorantly. (Qur’an 6:111)

And so We have appointed for every Prophet enemies – Shayatin (devils) among mankind and jinns, inspiring one another with adorned speech as a delusion (or by way of deception). If your Lord had so willed, they would not have done it, so leave them alone with their fabrications. (Qur’an 6:112)

(And this is in order) that the hearts of those who disbelieve in the Hereafter may incline to such (deceit), and that they may remain pleased with it, and that they may commit what they are committing (all kinds of sins and evil deeds, etc.). (Qur’an 6:113)

[Say] “Shall I seek a judge other than Allah while it is He Who has sent down unto you the Book (The Qur’an), explained in detail.” Those unto whom We gave the Scripture know that it is revealed from your Lord in truth. So be not you of those who doubt. (Qur’an 6:114)

And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can change His Words. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. (Qur’an 6:115)

And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah’s Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie. (Qur’an 6:116)

Note: If one decides to disbelieve; even if he is shown angels then it would be of no use. Notice in (Qur’an 6:111) where Allah mentions that they would not believe in angels he followed it up with (Qur’an 6:112) that such people will believe in jinns and work with them while other people as seen in (Qur’an 6:113) will follow the fabrications of the men and jinns (eg democratic manmade constitutions; trinity Christianity etc) and remain pleased with it. How did Allah send down the Scriptures mentioned in (Qur’an 6:114)? The Scriptures were sent through Angels of course. It is also interesting to note that in (Qur’an 6:114) there is a fact embedded that the people mentioned in (Qur’an 6:112-113) do not take Allah as a judge and even if they do take Allah as a judge they only do so partially {which is also quite evil considering Allah addresses this issue in (Qur’an 6:136)}.

It is quite interesting that these Ayats (Qur’an 6:111-116) were actually in the 6th Surah called al-an’am (cattle) which according to our interpretation is a Surah that addresses a lot of things human cattle are prone to do. To know and get a glimpse of what the human cattle are please refer to this article below called “People Are Cattle”:

People Are Cattle {Source: http://www.oocities.org/area51/corridor/9884/Cattle.html}

People are stupid. That has been my philosophy for a long time. It’s so true. I defy anyone to prove me wrong. I’m not talking about academic stupidity, rather the lack of ability to think and apply thought to actions. The reason we live in such a babied society today is because of peoples’ inability to think and/or fend for themselves. I had a friend in high school that used to say that everyone else (presumably besides him) were cattle. I used to laugh at him because it was so fitting of his personality. It wasn’t till later that I would begin to perceive his insight.

People nowadays don’t think for themselves. They do what society shows them to do. They wear what society tells them to wear, act how society tells them to act, buy what society tells them to buy, drive what society says the should drive, vote or don’t vote for who/what society says they should vote for, listen to the music that society tells them to listen to, and even worship the god that society tells them to. Most people aren’t going to understand this, but that is ok. The cows that graze in the pasture are just as much cattle as the ones that are fed at the trough, it’s just that they don’t realize it. People are so concerned with the choices they make that they end up becoming U.S.D.A. Choice.

I came to realize that there is a reason why people are stupid today. We grow up in a society where we don’t have to think. The laws created in our country today exist to protect us against ourselves, or to take advantage of our ignorance. People are bred to go with the flow and not make waves. Since our whole society follows this precept, most people aren’t able to see that there is any other way to follow. Since our lives are run by society, we find that we don’t have to think. When you don’t think, you are stupid.

 

As a final note, Fir’aun was not the only disbeliever to question as to why a Messenger is not sent with an angel or angels;  the disbelievers who quote similar accusations in the Qur’an are as follows:  (Qur’an 6:8-10), (Qur’an 11:12),(Qur’an 15:6-8), (Qur’an 17:90-95), (Qur’an 23:23-26), (Qur’an 25:7), (Qur’an 25:21-22), (Qur’an 41:14).

And they say: “Why has not an angel been sent down to him?” Had We sent down an angel, the matter would have been judged at once, and no respite would be granted to them. And had We appointed him an angel, We indeed would have made him a man, and We would have certainly caused them confusion in a matter which they have already covered with confusion. And indeed Messengers were mocked before you, but their scoffers were surrounded by the very thing that they used to mock at. (Qur’an 6:8-10)

So perchance you may give up a part of what is revealed unto you, and that your breast feels straitened for it because they say, “Why has not a treasure been sent down unto him, or an angel has come with him?” But you are only a warner. And Allah is a Wakil (Disposer of affairs, Trustee, Guardian, etc.) over all things. (Qur’an 11:12)

And they say: “O you to whom the Dhikr (the Qur’an) has been sent down! Verily, you are a mad man. Why do you not bring angels to us if you are of the truthful ones?” We send not the angels down except with the truth (i.e. for torment, etc.), and in that case, they (the disbelievers) would have no respite! (Qur’an 15:6-8)

And they say: “We shall not believe in you (O Muhammad ), until you cause a spring to gush forth from the earth for us; Or you have a garden of date-palms and grapes, and cause rivers to gush forth in their midst abundantly; Or you cause the heaven to fall upon us in pieces, as you have pretended, or you bring Allah and the angels before (us) face to face; Or you have a house of adornable materials (like silver and pure gold, etc.), or you ascend up into the sky, and even then we will put no faith in your ascension until you bring down for us a Book that we would read.” Say: “Glorified (and Exalted) be my Lord (Allah) above all that evil they (polytheists) associate with Him! Am I anything but a man, sent as a Messenger?” (Qur’an 17:90-93)

And nothing prevented men from believing when the guidance came to them, except that they said: “Has Allah sent a man as (His) Messenger?” Say: “If there were on the earth, angels walking about in peace and security, We should certainly have sent down for them from the heaven an angel as a Messenger.” Say: “Sufficient is Allah for a witness between me and you. Verily! He is the All-Knower, the All-Seer of His slaves.” (Qur’an 17:94-96)

And indeed We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people, and he said: “O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other Ilah (God) but Him. Will you not then be afraid?” But the chiefs of those who disbelieved among his people said: “He is no more than a human being like you, he seeks to make himself superior to you. Had Allah willed, He surely could have sent down angels; never did we hear such a thing among our fathers of old. He is only a man in whom is madness, so wait for him a while.” [Nuh (Noah)] said: “O my Lord! Help me because they deny me.” (Qur’an 23:23-26)

And they say: “Why does this Messenger eat food, and walk about in the markets (like ourselves). Why is not an angel sent down to him to be a warner with him? Or (why) has not a treasure been granted to him, or why has he not a garden whereof he may eat?” And the Zalimun say: “You follow none but a man bewitched.” See how they coin similitudes for you, so they have gone astray, and they cannot find a (Right) Path. (Qur’an 25:7-9)

And those who expect not for a Meeting with Us, say: “Why are not the angels sent down to us, or why do we not see our Lord?” Indeed they think too highly of themselves, and are scornful with great pride. On the Day they will see the angels, no glad tidings will there be for the Mujrimun that day. And they (angels) will say: “All kinds of glad tidings are forbidden for you,”. And We shall turn to whatever deeds they did, and We shall make such deeds as scattered floating particles of dust. (Qur’an 25:21-23)

When the Messengers came to them, from before them and behind them (saying): “Worship none but Allah” They said: “If our Lord had so willed, He would surely have sent down the angels. So indeed! We disbelieve in that with which you have been sent.” (Qur’an 41:14)

Do they then wait for anything other than that the angels should come to them, or that your Lord should come, or that some of the Signs of your Lord should come (i.e. portents of the Hour)! The day that some of the Signs of your Lord do come, no good will it do to a person to believe then, if he believed not before, nor earned good (by performing deeds of righteousness) through his Faith. Say: “Wait you! we (too) are waiting.” (Qur’an 6:158)
