|Why Humanbeings are Superior to Angels?

Divine Wisdom in the Word of Adam
|"We will show them Our signs on the horizons

|What kept men back from belief when Guidance came to
them, was nothing but this: they said, "Has Allah sent a
man (like us) to be (His) Messenger. Say, "If there were
settled, on earth, angels walking about in peace and quiet,
We should certainly have sent them down from the heavens
an angel for an apostle. Say: "Enough is Allah for a witness
between me and you: for He is well acquainted with His
servants, and He sees (all things).
|"My slave does not draw near Me with anything I love more than
what I have made obligatory for him. My slave continues to draw
near me with superogatory actions until I love him. When I love
him, I am his hearing with he hears, his sight by which he sees, his
hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks."
