    They are there to carry out His commands, maybe "agents" of His decree.We are unable to fully comprehend the unseen, except what has been revealed.

    "With Him are the keys of the unseen (ghayb). No one knows them other than Him. He knows what is in land and sea. No leaf falls but He knows it; nor there is a grain in the darkness of the earth or a green or dry thing but in a manifest Book." (6.59)


    The knowledge about angels is what have been revealed to us, that's all we know. Maybe this link on Angels can help more regarding their nature and roles.

    There are some websites specifically for asking scholars questions

    When I used to be in school I wanted to ask my islamic teacher a question but she couldn't answer it. So I come here in hope of an answer.

    Allah(swt) says he created the angels, djinn and human to worship him and him only. And humans are currently in a test of faith, and it is known that Angels don't sleep don't eat and do nothing but worship Allah(swt). Then my question is why do they have different tasks? Why is Jibreel a messenger and why does Malak al mawt have to come to collect our souls, why are there angels that carry the throne? Since Allah(swt) is capable of doing everything then why does he have the angels perform these tasks?

    Thank you.
