Angel over Kaaba – NOT REAL !!

This post has 45,643 views.

There has been an email going around of a video from YOUTUBE claiming that the camera man has captured an angel flying over the Kaaba. It is a really disturbing fact that so many muslims look for unrealistic and fake claims to boost their Imaan (faith). The video above makes such claims that the light flying around is an angel and at the end shows a picture of a bird over the Kaaba – again claiming that it is a captured frame of an angel.

Allah says in the Quraan: “This is the book in which there is no doubt, a guide to ward off evil. Who believe in the unseen…” We are those who believe in the unseen and that is enough for us. Allah does not need to show us angels and the unseen for us to believe – The Quraan and the life of Nabi (SAW) is enough. Stick with that and it is ALL you will ever need.

Now back to the video, lets analyse it from a professional point of view:
1. All cameras have concave lenses and because these lenses are made of glass they easily reflect light and at certain angles display the spectrum of light. Sometimes we see all 7 (ROYGBIV) colours while other times we see just a halo.

2. Im Macca there are tons of really bright lights at night that are very easily reflected off the lenses creating spectacular effects that seem to be outside of the camera – these can only be seen when viewed through the lens of the camera.

3. The halo or light effect will follow the lens but eventually fade away depending on the angle of the lens. Most times if there are more than one light then the effect is again picked up from another light source creating a continuation of the first effect.

4. In the video, notice how there are 4 halos but come into one – this is from the four bright lights straight ahead. When the camera is at horizon line level they merge into one halo – this is because of the level the camera is with the lights. When the camera drops lower than the level of the lights it becomes a bigger halo again.

5. The man in the video is a joke – there is NO PROOF that he is actually looking at the halo effect. This is added footage from another video at that specific time frame creating a sense of excitement.

6. In the second shot the same man briefly walks away as if he is uninterested about the halo. If an angel appears in front of you or in the sky do you think you will look away and continue walking?

7. The video pans down at those making Tawaaf. Do you see anyone pointing or looking at the sky? Most people will be so terrified that they will run and scatter. That’s because no-one else can see the “angel” but the man behind the camera.

8. Now for the best part – the bird, sorry Angel. Anyone who uses Adobe Photoshop or has any experience in photo retouching will point out that the bird is super imposed over the Kaaba. The angle, lighting, drop shadow is all terribly done. It’s amazing how this angel is so blurred in the sky but yet there is absolutely NO footage of it flying over the Kaaba clearly – only a terrible Photoshop image is captured.

9. Playing some qiraat from Abdul Basit over the footage really brings out the amazement – trying to show how powerful the footage is. Why not use the real audio also captured from the camera so that we can all hear the people screaming, saying Allahu Akbar or at least one person saying “Look theres an angel in the sky”.

10. I’m tired of typing out the flaws of this video of which I haven’t even touched on the Islamic part of it. Can you find more flaws – I’m sure you can. Let us know.

Hi dear
I milad!
I am a Muslim and I believe in God and His Prophet and the angels of God!
Well I believe that on the grand night the angels come down to earth.
But I know this video is unreal. Because of something beyond our world is immaterial and separate people not able to see the angels of God.
But the prophet who leave their God opened the gate of discernment and spiritual dimension beyond that which can see

The start of the video says 27th ramadaan.lsilatul qadr. However if we notice clearly, the kiswah, the kabah cover is raised, like it is at hajj time only. This is a lie. A real lie. Only sick people have time to make things like this up. The kiswah is only changed at hajj time, once a yer. Next time, tif they wana do something like this, they should use their brains.

As Salaamu Alaykum Alhandulillah Robbil Alameen. I thank Almighty Allah that our muslim brothers and sister are not fooled by this video... May Almighty Allah increase our knowledge and strenghtens our Iman toward His path. However, let us not forget that the Holy Prophet said that the angels are created from nur or the divine light. Thus, in the real sense, one can not see such light (angel) inside another light. Angels are not settlers on earth. They are sent down from heaven. The Holy Quran mentions of the angelic hosts sent to help Muslims were not seen by human eyes. The manner in which Divine message is delivered by angel is by revealing it to the hearts of Prophets. The dumb can still communicate with the sign language without voice or words. There instances in the lives of several prophets especially Muhammad s.a.w. when the angel Jibrail or Gabriel was seen by the prophet coming with the Divine revelation, sometimes in the shape of a man. This, however, was not seen with the physical eyes but hose of spiritual. There were occasions when Prophet Muhammad received the Divine message while he was sitting among his Companions: yet no one heard the message nor saw the angel. Allahu Halam

i believe the so called angel on the ka'aba to be a rails o conjoin light from the camera because if it true angel the concentration of the worshiper could have been directed to ka'aba, but jokinly it more looks like an angel for people who rest their believe on technology.

SALAM, VERY NICELY ANSWERED AND A GOOD SLAP ON THE FACE OF PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST FOLLOWING THE SHALLOW SIDE OF IMAN AND NOT THE DEPTH. THIS IS NOT TRUE AS U SAID: We are those who believe in the unseen and that is enough for us. Allah does not need to show us angels and the unseen for us to believe – The Quraan and the life of Nabi (SAW) is enough. Stick with that and it is ALL you will ever need. AND NO NEED FOR THESE UNREALISTIC AND FAKE THINGS TO BOOST OUR IMAN. SHUKRIYA. JAZZAK ALLAH!

There are angels coming to the Ka'bah all the time. It's just this video that we are talking about being fake. We will never be able to se an angel and Allah has not given then free will to make themselves visible to us - unlike the Jinn. Here is a post on Lailatul Qadr

Assalaamu Alaikum.My dear brother you know i think it would be better if we just keep quit on issues like this.Because i think whether it a fact or a fiction it very maltivating.And let look at our youth today,they're all spoiled so i think things like this could help maltivate them.And i thing that all we need we need is (faith) does'nt mater how.Because someone would be maltivated by this and thats good, but reading your comment will make him lose it again and that not good,so comparing the two,i think it would have been better if you kept quit.Maybe you're a big scholar but i dont think biger than the PROPHET (S.A.W)who himself sometime prefer to be silent on some issues.JAZAAKUMULLAAHU KHAIRAN.

Assalaamu Alikum. Yes there are angels above the Ka'ba all the time but the one in the YOUTUBE video is NOT an angel.

As Salaamu Alaykum, Actually it IS a problem when we are motivated by something NOT in the sunnah. I'm sure "motivating" is what you meant, instead of "maltivating". Nevertheless, would it then be correct to say that if one reads a mawdoo' (fabricated) and it inspires hope and faith that it is correct to keep reading "ahaadeeth" not from the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). I don't think that the Nabi of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) would approve of that, when he himself stated "Whoever innovates into this affair of ours something that we have not commanded it is to be rejected" (Bukhari and Muslim). The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) himself saw Jibreel (Alayhi wa Sallam) once or twice only in his original form. Should the Qur'aan and Hadeeth not be motivating enough for us? Do we need to see "miracles" like the in the days of jaahiliyyah to strengthen our imaan? Are the stories of Qur'aan not sufficient for us, the direct words of Allah? So it's not about being a "big scholar", it's about what is Qur-aan and Hadeeth. Deen has not been made difficult for us, the Qur-aan and Sunnah should be sufficient for us. Was Salaamu Alaykum

@Nadeem Ahmed I have personally seen bird flying over the Kaaba in a circle like how we make Tawaaf. But I have also see small birds sit on top of the Kaaba

As Salaamu Alaykum You know I've heard of that as well. My mum told me about birds not flying over the Ka'bah. I will find out for you and get back to you Inshaa-Allah.

As Salaamu Alaykum I really don't know why people do this. It infuriates me when people do these things. Everybody lives their lives the way they want and wants to see miracles for their faith to strengthen, but that's not how it works! May Allah protect us and guide us.

Was Salaam brother Abdullah This video perturbed me, I had to find out from a professional whether the video was doctored or not. Glad you liked the article.

@fatalduo Im not sure what you are asking but Angels and Jinn are invisible to us. It does not mean that because it is mentioned in Quraan then it must be visible. Jannah and Jahannam is also mentioned in Quraan and we certainly cannot see either.
