Describing the Angels with Al- 'UboodiYah

Also, in describing the Angels with Al-'Uboodiyah He (AWJ) said,

"And they say; The Beneficient (Allah) has begotten children.' Exalted be He! Those whom they call children, (i.e. the Angels), are but honored 'Ibaad. They speak not until He has spoken, and they act by His Command. He knows what is before them, and what is behind them, and they cannot intercede except for him with whom He is pleased. And they stand in awe due to their apprehension of Him." [Al Anbiya:26 - 28]

He (SWT) also said,

"And they say: 'The Beneficient (Allah) has begotten children.' Indeed you have brought forth a terrible thing. Whereby almost the heavens are torn and the earth is split assunder and the mountains fall in ruins. That you ascribed children to the Beneficient (Allah). But it is not suitable for (the Majesty of) the Beneficient (Allah) that He should beget children. There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes unto the Beneficient (Allah) as a slave. Verily He knows their number and has counted them a full counting. And everyone of them will come to Him alone, on the Day of Resurrection." [Mariyam:88 - 95]
