What were the Angles created from

The substance from which Allah created them is light. In Saheeh Muslim it is narrated from 'Aa'ishah (رضى الله عنها) that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: _*“The angels were created from light, the jinn were created from smokeless fire, and Adam was created from that which has been described to you.”*_ [Muslim, 4/2294, hadith no. 2996]

The Messenger (ﷺ) did not explain what light this is that they were created from. Hence we cannot indulge in trying to say more about this matter, because it is the matter of the unseen concerning which no further clarification has been narrated, apart from this hadith.

It is narrated that 'Ikrimah said: "The angels were created from the light of glory and Iblees was created from the fire of glory." And it is narrated that 'Abd-Allah ibn 'Amr said, "Allah created the angels from the light of the arms and chest." It is not permissible to accept these views, even if they are narrated through sound chains from these scholars, because they are not infallible, and they may have taken these ideas from the Israaeeliyyaat (reports from Jewish sources). [Silsilat al-Ahaadeeth as-Saheehah, 1/197]

All praise is due to Allah we ask Him to bless the Prophet Sallah Llah Alei Wasalam and the companions and let's die in the path of Qur'an and Sunnah.
