Affirming the Existence of the angels & the fact that they are a creation of Allah & thus, subject to His Lordship & worship.
Shaikh Salih al-Fawzan writes in his treatise, al-Imaan bil Malaaikah wa-Athruhu fi-Hayahil-Ummah, “Angels are a creation of Allah, which He created for His worship, & to carry out His commands in the universe.
They are a creation from the world of the unseen; we do not see them but we believe in their existence with certainty without doubt because Allah has informed us about them & likewise, His Messenger has enlightened us about them with definitive information that causes us to believe in them.”
Belief in angels precedes belief in the Books of Allah & His Messengers because Allah revealed the Books to His Messengers by means of angels. Denial of the existence of angels leads to rejection of all the Divine Books & consequently, everything that the Messengers were sent with. – 05 Also, choosing some angels to believe in over others is disbelief like choosing some prophets over others.
Imaam Ibn Katheer writes in the Tafseer of the verse, (2): 97, “…whoever believes in one Messenger is required to believe in all of the Messengers. Whoever rejects one Messenger, he has rejected all of the Messengers. Similarly, Allah said, “Verily, those who disbelieve in Allah & His Messengers & wish to make distinction between Allah & His Messengers saying, ‘We believe in some but reject others,’ & wish to adopt a way in between. They are in truth disbelievers.”
Allah decreed that they are disbelievers because they believe in some Prophet& reject others… ‘Allah’s Messengers’ includes angels & men because Allah says (in another verse), “Allah chooses Messengers from angels & from men.” [Surah al-Hajj (22): Ayah (75)] ” [end quote]
