Allah almighty has created numerous creatures and that is for wisdom. Amongst these worlds is the honored angels. Believers believe in the angels as they believe in their Creator. Knowledge concerning the angels; their existence, characteristics and jobs, came as revelation from Allah to the prophets via Jibreel peace be upon him. The most important issue regarding the angles which, I believe, has not been thoroughly examined is seeing them in this world. I have collected relevant facts and I have not found strong evidence except what are mentioned in the Qur'an and the Prophetic Sunnah as well as scholars' sayings which are based on them. The subject of seeing the angels should not be dealt with on the basis of speculations and guesses since it is related to the unseen. Therefore, this research comes to be based on the trusted texts; the Qur'an and the Sunnah without referring to the opinions of Islamic sects or other religions. It is hoped that the current research will add useful knowledge to the field of Creed and modern Islamic thought.
