 Commentary on the Koran: Surah 35 “The Angels”

Pickthall Translation; English Standard Version used unless otherwise noted.



Surah 35 Al Mala’ikah The Angels is also called Al Fatir The Creator from a word in verse 1.  The text refers to the creation of the Angelic Host.  One of the few transcription errors in the Koran occurs here in verse 1. The angels refer to those of two, three and four winged angels.  The fact is that the creation of the Angelic Host was as the elohim; as two winged and four winged angels and the Morning Stars as Seraphim or six winged angels. The original text was most likely “having wings two and two x three and four”. 


It is surprising that the error was not realised long ago. The idea of a three winged flying being is ridiculous. The distinction is Allah’s to multiply in creation what He will. This refers to the initial creation in Job 38:4-7 where all the sons of God were gathered together under their Morning Stars at the initial creation of the earth.  The Seraphim are the six winged teaching heads of the Angelic Host. Also the Cherubim are six winged creatures that surround the throne of God.  Messiah was to become the Morning Star or the Al Tarikh as head of the entire Host from his sacrifice as we see in the Surah 86 “Al Tarikh” “The Morning Star” below.


35.1. Praise be to Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, Who appointeth the angels messengers having wings two, three and four. He multiplieth in creation what He will. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things.

Isaiah 6:2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

Revelation 4:8 And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!"

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

Not one of all their enemies had withstood them, for the LORD had given all their enemies into their hands. 45Not one word of all the good promises that the LORD had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass.


Joshua 23:14 And now I am about to go the way of all the earth, and you know in your hearts and souls, all of you, that not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed.

The believers who obey and keep the Commandments of God, and the Faith and Testimony of Messiah will attain eternal life in the First Resurrection. The others are sent to the Second Resurrection to undergo intensive corrective training to allow them to come to repentance. If they do not repent during the 100 years allocated for repentance they will face the second death.


35.8. Is he, the evil of whose deeds is made fairseeming unto him so that he deemeth it good, (other than Satan's dupe)? Allah verily sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth whom He will; so let not thy soul expire in sighings for them. Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do!


We are unable to make people see the truth and convert them. It is God who calls, each in his time.

35.9. And Allah it is Who sendeth the winds and they raise a cloud; then We lead it unto a dead land and revive therewith the earth after its death. Such is the Resurrection.


Note the explanation here. There is no Heaven or Hell; only the two Resurrections from the dead (cf. Heaven, Hell or the First Resurrection of the Dead (No. 143A) and The Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B)).


Psalm 135:7 He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.


Refer to Isaiah 55:10 at ayat 30.19 Commentary the on Koran: Surah 30 (No. Q030).


The process of the rain watering the dead earth to bring about new life is comparable to the resurrection of the dead back to life.


35.10. Whoso desireth power (should know that) all power belongeth to Allah. Unto Him good words ascend, and the pious deed doth He exalt; but those who plot iniquities, theirs will be an awful doom; and the plotting of such (folk) will come to naught.

35.11. Allah created you from dust, then from a little fluid, then He made you pairs (the male and female). No female beareth or bringeth forth save with His knowledge. And no-one groweth old who groweth old, nor is aught lessened of his life, but it is recorded in a Book, Lo! that is easy for Allah.


Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.


Psalm 139:15-16 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. 16Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.


Job 10:9-11 'Remember now, that You have made me as clay; And would You turn me into dust again? 10'Did You not pour me out like milk And curdle me like cheese; 11Clothe me with skin and flesh, And knit me together with bones and sinews?

Psalm 107:31-32 Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! 32Let them extol him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

35.13. He maketh the night to pass into the day and He maketh the day to pass into the night. He hath subdued the sun and moon to service. Each runneth unto an appointed term. Such is Allah, your Lord; His is the Sovereignty; and those unto whom ye pray instead of Him own not so much as the white spot on a date-stone.

35.14. If ye pray unto them they hear not your prayer, and if they heard they could not grant it you. On the Day of Resurrection they will disown association with you. None can inform you like Him Who is Aware.


Genesis 1:14-18 And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth." And it was so. 16And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. 17And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

Habakkuk 2:18-19 What profit is an idol when its maker has shaped it, a metal image, a teacher of lies? For its maker trusts in his own creation when he makes speechless idols! 19Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake; to a silent stone, Arise! Can this teach? Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in it.

Refer to Daniel 4:35 at ayat 28.88 Commentary on the Koran: Surah 28 (No. Q028).


35.18. And no burdened soul can bear another's burden, and if one heavy laden crieth for (help with) his load, naught of it will be lifted even though he (unto whom he crieth) be of kin. Thou warnest only those who fear their Lord in secret, and have established worship. He who groweth (in goodness), groweth only for himself, (he cannot by his merit redeem others). Unto Allah is the journeying.

35.19. The blind man is not equal with the seer;

35.20. Nor is darkness (tantamount to) light;

35.21. Nor is the shadow equal with the sun's full heat;

35.22. Nor are the living equal with the dead. Lo! Allah maketh whom He will to hear. Thou canst not reach those who are in the graves.


God is the God of the Living and not the Dead.


Refer to 2Corinthians 4:4 at ayat 29.38 Commentary on the Koran: Surah 29 (No. Q029).


2Corinthians 6:14-15 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?

35.23. Thou art but a warner.

35.24. Lo! We have sent thee with the Truth, a bearer of glad tidings and a warner; and there is not a nation but a warner hath passed among them.

35.25. And if they deny thee, those before them also denied. Their messengers came unto them with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), and with the Psalms and the Scripture giving light.

35.26. Then seized I those who disbelieved, and how intense was My abhorrence!


Surah 16:36 And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger, (proclaiming): Serve Allah and shun false gods. Then some of them (there were) whom Allah guided, and some of them (there were) upon whom error had just hold. Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers!


It seems that every messenger is not honored in his community and among his relatives and in his own household as stated in Mark 6:4, but he is mocked and his message denied even though he comes with clear proofs of the sovereignty of the True God. The deniers are always meted out the punishment the messenger warned them about.


Refer to 2Chronicles 36:16 at ayat 30.10 Commentary on the Koran: Surah 30 (No. Q030).

Genesis 1:24-25 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds." And it was so. 25And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Colossians 1:12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.


35.31. As for that which We inspire in thee of the Scripture, it is the Truth confirming that which was (revealed) before it. Lo! Allah is indeed Observer, Seer of His slaves.

35.32. Then We gave the Scripture as inheritance unto those whom We elected of Our bondmen. But of them are some who wrong themselves and of them are some who are lukewarm, and of them are some who outstrip (others) through good deeds, by Allah's leave. That is the great favour!


Isaiah 8:16 Bind up the testimony; seal the teaching among my disciples.

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (KJV)


The truth inspired and carried to the church in Arabia was confirmation of the Old Testament and the New Testament Scriptures. Surah 3.3-4 states:

He hath revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture with truth, confirming that which was (revealed) before it, even as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel. Aforetime, for a guidance to mankind; and hath revealed the Criterion (of right and wrong). Lo! those who disbelieve the revelations of Allah, theirs will be a heavy doom. Allah is Mighty, Able to Requite (the wrong).


Psalm 4:3 But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.


Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: KJV)


The reference here draws on the parable of the talents. The person who buried his talent lost out as he did not make good use of what was given to him. They are classified as lukewarm which is a clear reference to Revelation chapters 2 and 3 and the Churches of God.

Scripture tells us that those who are lukewarm will be spewed of God’s mouth. The Laodicean Church is one of the Churches of God in the last days that will be consigned to the Second Resurrection. The profitable servants will get their reward.


35.33. Gardens of Eden! They enter them wearing armlets of gold and pearl and their raiment therein is silk.

35.34. And they say: Praise be to Allah Who hath put grief away from us. Lo! Our Lord is Forgiving, Bountiful,

35.35. Who, of His grace, hath installed us in the mansion of eternity, where toil toucheth us not nor can weariness affect us.


This is a reference to the City of God (No. 180) after the Resurrections (cf. Rev. chs. 21 and 22).

See also Ephesians 2:8 at ayat 35.3 and Psalm 130:3-4 at ayat 35.28 above.


John 14:2-3 In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

35.36. But as for those who disbelieve, for them is fire of hell; it taketh not complete effect upon them so that they can die, nor is its torment lightened for them. Thus We punish every ingrate.

35.37. And they cry for help there, (saying): Our Lord! Release us; we will do right, not (the wrong) that we used to do. Did not We grant you a life long enough for him who reflected to reflect therein? And the warner came unto you. Now taste (the flavour of your deeds), for evil-doers have no helper.


Read Revelation 20:11-15 as quoted at ayat 17.15 in Commentary on the Koran: Surah 17 (No. Q017).

The Second Resurrection is the period of 100 years allowed for repentance for those undergoing intensive corrective training as they have never experienced before at any time in their lives. If they do not repent they will face the second death and then be cremated in the Lake of Fire.


Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

In the earlier physical lives they did not believe in the truth and did what seemed good and pleasing to themselves. They did not take the time to reflect on their misdeeds, mocked the messengers of God and ill-treated them and literally turned their backs to God, so they were sent to the Second Resurrection to face the punishment and this time around they will have to learn the hard way.


Refer to 2Chronicles 36:16 at ayat 30.10 Commentary on the Koran: Surah 30 (No. Q030).
