According to the Noble Koran, believing in God, His messengers and the Divine Books is along with believing in the angels:
The Messenger believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, has [so do] believers, everyone believers in God and his angels, his book and his messengers. (2:285)

The following Koranic verses indicate the characteristics of the angels:


1. Rather they are honoured servants. (21:26)
