Angels that rise and descend with the rising and the setting of the Sun

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillah

Ammaa Bad:

Another example of an affair that takes place daily within the creation of Allah, among the aspects of creation that we do not see is that which the Messenger informed us of that occurs daily with the rising and setting of the sun.

Upon the authority of Abu Dardaa – May Allah be pleased with him – (who narrates) From the Messenger – Sallallahu ‘alahi wa salam who said:

The Sun does not rise, except that on either side of it there are two angels that make a call that is heard by everyone on earth except Mankind and the Jinn (Saying) “Oh Mankind! Come to your lord! That which is little and suffices is better than that which is plenty but distracts (from your lord). And it does not set except that on either side of it there are two angels that call, (Saying) Oh Allah! Give to the one that spends (in your way) a goodly substitute, and and give to the the one that withholds (from giving) destruction

(Collected by Ibn Hibbaan (3319) and Shaikh Al Albaani Declared it ‘Saheeh’ in ‘Dhilaal Al Jannah’ (975))

We benefit from this hadeeth a number of things:

1. Another one of the duties of the angels
2. The virtue of Satisfaction and sufficiency
3. The virtue of giving with sincerity
4. The blameworthy nature of witholding and not spending in the way of Allah
5. The Fitna of the dunya

Wallahu a’lam
