Description :

The World of The Angels is a fine example of traditional learning on this topic. This translation by Aisha Bewley fills a much needed gap in aqida (belief) literature in the western english speaking world. Basing himself exclusively on the Qur'an and Hadith, Sheikh Kishk deals with every aspect of the angelic world. He goes from discussing the creation, nature of the angels to enumerating their many different types and also explains their role in existence and character of their interaction with the human race.

An in-depth understanding of the nature and activity of the angels is essential for the people of today, particularly in the face of the onslaught of scientific materialism which has done so much to weaken the basis of belief in this period of time. This book should help a great deal towards this end.
