Harut and Marut

Question

Were Harut and Marut Angels?

 

Answer

There is a difference of opinion among the Mufassirun regarding this.

Hafiz Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) says, ‘Many of the pious predecessors were of the view that they were Angels.’

(Refer: Tafsir Ibn Kathir, and Ma’ariful Quran, Surah Baqarah, Verse: 102. Also see: Fathul Bari, before Hadith: 5763, vol. 10 pg. 225)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
