1661 - صِفَةُ المَلائِكَةِ


5823.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام - في صفَةِ الملائكةِ - : هُم أعلَمُ خَلقِكَ بكَ ، وأخوَفُهُم لكَ ، وأقرَبُهُم مِنكَ، لَم يَسكُنوا الأصلابَ ، ولَم يُضَمَّنوا الأرحامَ ، ولَم يُخلَقوا مِن ماءٍ مَهينٍ ، ولَم يَتشَعَّبْهُم رَيبُ المَنونِ ، وإنّهُم على‏ مَكانِهِم مِنكَ ، ومَنزِلَتِهِم عِندَكَ ، واستِجماعِ أهوائهِم فيكَ ، وكَثرَةِ طاعَتِهِم لكَ ، وقِلَّةِ غَفلَتِهِم عن أمرِكَ ، لَو عايَنوا كُنهَ ما خَفِيَ علَيهِم مِنكَ لَحَقَّروا أعمالَهُم .1

5823. Imam Ali (AS), describing angels said, 'They are the most knowledgeable of Your creation about You, the most fearful of You and the closest to You. They did not come from loins nor did they enter wombs; they were not created from worthless liquid; they were not dispersed by vicissitudes of time. They are on their places [distinct] from You and in their positions near You. Their desires are concentrated in You. Their worship for You is very much. Their neglect from Your command is little. If they were to witness what remains hidden about You, they would belittle their actions.' 2

5824.الإمامُ الصّادقُ عليه السلام : إنّ الملائكةَ لا يأكُلونَ، ولا يَشرَبونَ ، ولايَنكِحونَ ، وإنّما يَعيشونَ بِنَسيمِ العَرشِ.3

5824.Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, 'Angels do not eat or drink or copulate, rather they subsist through the breeze of the Throne.' 4
