What Are Angels And Iblees Created From?

مم خلق الله الملائكة وإبليس؟


Indeed Allaah has created Aadam from clay and He created before him the Angels and amongst the Angels was Iblees and He created him from fire, why then did He create him from fire and what are Angels created from?

لقد خلق الله آدم من طين وخلق قبله الملائكة وكان ضمن الملائكة إبليس وخلقه من النار ، فلماذا خلقه من النار ومن أي شيء خلق الله الملائكة ؟


It is established from the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) from the hadeeth of ‘Aisha (رضي الله عنها) that she said :

(( خلقت الملائكة من النور وخلق الجان من مارج من نار وخلق آدم مما وصف لكم ))

“The angels are created from light and the Jinns are created from a smokeless fire and Aadam was created from that which has been described to you.”

Meaning from clay, this [hadeeth] is reported by Muslim in his saheeh.

As for the wisdom in that then Allaah the Most Perfect and Most High knows of it and He is the Most Wise All-Knower of everything what He creates and legislates, there is no censure of His Judgement and there is no warding off His Decree. And He has full ability and power over everything.

ثبت عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من حديث عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت :

(( خلقت الملائكة من النور وخلق الجان من مارج من نار وخلق آدم مما وصف لكم ))

يعني من الطين خرجه مسلم في صحيحه أما الحكمة في ذلك فالله سبحانه وتعالى أعلم بها وهو الحكيم العليم في كل ما يخلقه ويشرع لا معقب لحكمه ولا راد لقضائه . وهو على كل شيء قدير .
