Anonymous said: my mother said we have two kinds of malaika, one made from light and the 2nd is made from fire. is that true? if iblis is not a fallen angel, then why he is in the heaven when Allah said bow to Adam? if Adam is our grandfather, then with jin who is their grandfather? pls answer. ASAP
That is a misconception. There are three kinds of makhluqaat (creation) that Allah has told us about: An-Nas (Humans- Made of clay with their own free will), Malaika (Angels- Made of Light and only obedient to Allah) & Lastly Jinn (Made of fire and they too have their own free will).
It is impossible for the concept of fallen angel to exist in islam because Allah has created angels in such a way that they cannot disobey Allah or fall into sin. Iblees was a jinn but once upon a time he was the most pious of the jinn so Allah had risen his status so much so that he would be among the angels. Nonetheless, he was a jinn and his arrogance got the best of him which led to his damnation.
Adam alayhis salam is not necessarily our “grandfather” but we are all children of Adam; that is we can all trace back our lineages to him. As for the first of Jinn to be created, AllahuAlam. That is from al ghayb and we don’t know because Allah hasn’t revealed that information to us. Nor do we need to know as Allah has given us everything we need for ourselves to get to jannah.
ps- I’m glad to answer your questions but i am not here to do so on an obligatory basis so I would appreciate it if you at least gave me your salam, displayed some basic etiquette for someone whom you are asking for favour. You cannot demand to be answered like such. Please remember that for next time you approach anyone. :)
