Belief in the Angels

Belief in the angels is one of the six pillars of belief in Islam (belief in Allah, belief in angels, belief in the revealed books, belief in the Prophets, belief in life after death, and belief in the Divine decree). In the Islamic worldview, angels were created from light before human beings were created, and thus their graphic or symbolic representation in Islamic art is rare. Nevertheless, they are generally beautiful beings with wings as described in Muslim scripture.
