: Burhan al-Thabut fi Tabri'at Harut wa Marut
- This work relates the infamous incident narrated by some scholars of Tafsir
in regards to the two Angels (Harut
) whom after seeing the mischievious ways of the humans' asked Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala
, why human beings were created because Allah Almighty had created the Angels who were obedient in all ways and never erred. To which Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala
, replied to nominate two Angels for the task of living among the human's as they were.
