Question: Do angels still come on earth as humans from time to time but we dont know it?
All praise is due to Allah.
It is known that during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad, may peace and Allah’s blessings be upon him, angel Jibreel came to the Messenger of Allah in the form of a man wearing white clothing with no signs of dust upon him. We also find narrations amongst the Sahaba of angels fighting alongside with them in the battle field.
And we find some narrations amongst the early generations that mention righteous people who were saved from harm, sometimes by a horseman wearing all white clothes that came out of the darkness of night to slay their enemy and disappeared after soon afterwards.
And we hear mention of similar narrations today, and although we have no way of verifying the authenticity of these reports, one tends to believe them as they are consistent in their descriptions and circumstances.
And Allah knows best.
