Angels surround the gathering

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I often hear when I attend Islamic lectures or programs that the Angels descend and wrap their wings around/under all the believers, and say amin when the group du’a is made at the end?



You are probably referring to the following Hadith:

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘..Whenever any people gather (one version says: in the masjid, and the other version doesn’t) to recite and study the Quran, sakinah (tranquility) descends upon them, they become engulfed in mercy and the Angels surround them and Allah mentions them by the Angels..’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 6793 and 6795)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
