My Love for Angel Jibreel AS

‘Angel Mikaeel brought the Mercy of rain  to the earth but Angel Jibraeel brought the rain of Mercy to the hearts!’

Asalamoalaykum warahmatullah,

I don’t know about anyone but I really love Angel Jibreel AS. The Jews had issues with him because He SWT sent down Angel Jibreel with a punishment for them (for obvious reasons). So they liked Angel Mikaeel AS only because they knew and believed that he brought rain and so that brought a good harvest, profit, food etc. SubhanAllah. Whereas both the Angels were just executing the Commands of Allah SWT. Yet the Jews, misbehaved, showed hatred and had problems with Islam when they got to know that it is Angel Jibreel AS who brings the Revelation to Rasulalah SAW by the Will of Allah SWT.

Say (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ): “Whoever is an enemy to Jibrael (Gabriel) (let him die in his fury), for indeed he has brought it (this Qur’ân) down to your heart by Allâh’s Permission, confirming what came before it [i.e. the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] and guidance and glad tidings for the believers. (97) “Whoever is an enemy to Allâh, His Angels, His Messengers, Jibrael (Gabriel) and Mikael (Michael), then verily, Allâh is an enemy to the disbelievers.” (98) [Surah Al Baqarah, 2: 97-98] –Tafseer here.

I remember reading a hadith in which Angel Jibraeel AS sent his salaams to Khadija RA via Prophet Salalahu alayhi wasalam as she was carrying a tray and entering the room/house. Can anyone feel the intensity of how heavenly the salams were? I sure can even though it wasn’t for me. SubhanAllah. One’s imagination can take you places.

Also, Angel Jibreel AS was the one sent to Maryam AS. Allah SWT must really love him because of the special tasks he got every time. Therefore, I love him too and I wish somehow I could send my salaams to him. I don’t know much about other Angels but they must truly be such a wonderful creation of Allah SWT. So devout and always at work. Some people argue that ‘well they don’t have the free-will which is why they’re constant in their worship.’ That is true but isn’t it enough for us as a reason to worship our Rabb perfectly because He SWT chose us over all creations? If the creation less favoured than us, such as the animals, worship Him and follow His Commands then we should be even better in our dedication to Him SWT? No?

May Allah SWT help us increase in our ‘Ibadah so much so that we become His Most Favourite Slaves.Ameen.

    Salam, this was a beautiful post. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Jazakallah khair for the nice post. Could it be ‘Aisha (radiAllahu anha) who was greeted by Angel Jibreel (alayhis salaam), as mentioned in the following hadith:

    Narrated Abu Salama (radiAllahu anhu):

    ‘Aisha said that the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasallam) said to her “O ‘Aisha’ This is Gabriel and he sends his (greetings) salutations to you.” ‘Aisha said, “Salutations (Greetings) to him, and Allah’s Mercy and Blessings be on him,” and addressing the Prophet she said, “You see what I don’t see.”
    [Sahih Bukhari; Volume 4, Book 54, Number 440]

    • Wa iyyakum.
      JazakAllahu khayran for that reference and indeed it must be Aisha RA as well who got that honor.
      I was particularly referring to this:

      Narrated Abu Huraira RA :
      Gabriel came to the Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This is Khadija coming to you with a dish having meat soup (or some food or drink). When she reaches you, greet her on behalf of her Lord (i.e. Allah) and on my behalf, and give her the glad tidings of having a Qasab palace in Paradise wherein there will be neither any noise nor any fatigue (trouble). [Sahih Bukhari: Book 5,Volume 58,Hadith 168 -Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar)]

      May Allah SWT make us and all the ladies around us like these wonderful women who got that exalted honor of Salam from their Rabb.Ameen.

      Thank you for dropping by.
