Q1: I very much believe that angels can communicate to humans. But I was told several times that Muslims don’t believe this to be possible. So it got me to thinking, what is the purpose of angels if not to guide humanity? What do they do in Muslim theology? I can’t find very much on this subject. I also really want to know what Muslims reactions are to Americans who believe that we can receive messages from angels. This is a pretty common belief over here.
Hardly any day passes without some any media coverage of Islam or Muslims somewhere in the world but ironically, there is still a great misunderstanding of the religion and there are many misconceptions. I am by no means a scholar but it is hoped that this part of the site can be directed towards the reader whereby they may ask general questions to gain a better understanding of Islam. I will try my best to either write answers to the questions or direct the reader to somewhere where they can find a more suitable answer. There are however, a few basic rules to follow before posting a message from the reply button below:
- Be courteous towards others, not being rude and /or insulting others’ beliefs
- Keep the question brief and /or simple so that it is easy to follow
- Do not simply believe everything you hear especially in mainstream media and feel free to do your own background reading around the topic. This includes my answers
- If you have a technical question about Islamic rulings on various issues, please refer to a local scholar /post a message on a website such as this
