Islamic Miracle: Real Angel Falling From Sky On Kaba in Mecca

A real angel fell from the sky to the top of the Ka'ba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It was caught live on camera by someone filming people praying inside the Ka'ba in Mecca.

The film shows how the angel flies straight down on to the top of the Kaba, staying there for a matter of seconds, then flying straight back up again. Is this an Islamic miracle? Maybe.

I have added the video below for you to decide whether this is genuine or fake. Also, if you think it is genuine, then is it an Islamic miracle or a sign of some sort?

Or is it fake and someone is trying to make some money out of something they created on their computer and spread it on the Internet, claiming it is an Islamic miracle?

This video was captured at the time of Hajj pilgrimage in 2008, apparently!

Islamic Miracle or a Hoax?

This particular video has two different recordings rolled into one. They show the two different views from two totally different places.

The scary thing is that the angel that falls and flies away again comes and goes in the same way in both of the different view points from which they were recorded.

Could this be a hoax? Someone maybe edited this light shaped like an angel into the video falling from the sky? Who is to know?

Maybe it is a miracle? Maybe it is an angel, but the main question is:

Does anyone know what an angel looks like???

Has anyone ever seen an angel with their own eyes???

I guess the answer to the above question is a massive NO!

Only the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has seen the angel Jibril (Gabriel) at the time of his prophethood and that was only twice!

Miracle or Hoax? My Verdict

I think thses videos are fake because the lighting effects make it seem like a bird shaped being moving along when the camera moves.

The second video does not show any clear bright light or 'angel' on top of the Ka'ba after it falls on it. But the top video does have this image in slow motion. It seems to me that the image of the bright 'angel' was edited in and smoothly shown in slow motion with the picture quality improving a massive amount suddenly then going back to blurry all over again.

How come there was no reaction to the 'angel' from the people who are inside Masjid al Haram? They look like they are going about their pilgrimage without any disturbance or sudden flashes of light.

Angels do not look like birds, as depicted in the image on top of the Kaba.

The descriptions of angels are given below from verses of the Qur'an and authentic Hadeeth.

Descriptions of Angels in Islam

“I have been given permission to speak about one of the angels of God who carry the Throne. The distance between his ear-lobes and his shoulders is equivalent to a seven-hundred-year journey.” (Abu Daud)

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said, "I saw Jibraeel in the fashion that he was originally created in. He had 600 wings. Each wing filling the (entire) horizon. (The east to the west, as far as the eye could see)."

Praise be to Allah, Who created (out of nothing) the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels, messengers with wings,- two, or three, or four (pairs): He adds to Creation as He pleases: for Allah has power over all things. —Qur'an, sura 35 (Fatir) ayat 1

The Prophet (saaws) said, "Angels keep on descending from and ascending to the heaven in turn, some at night and some by daytime, and all of them assemble together at the time of the Fajr and 'Asr prayers. Then those who have stayed with you overnight, ascend unto Allah Who asks them (and He knows the answer better than they): "How have you left My slaves?" They reply, "We left them while they were praying and we came to them while they were praying." The narrator added: "If anyone of you says 'Amin (during the prayer at the end of the recitation of Surat Al-Fatiha), and the angels in heaven say the same, and the two sayings coincide, all his past sins will be forgiven." Hadith - Bukhari, Vol. 4, Hadith No. 446, Narrated Abu Huraira, r.a.

You will need to have your head examined if you believe this was a miracle!

Ibrahima on August 10, 2017:

Salaam! I used to believe in this video until i read this piece of analysis. This is a total bogus, and thanks for enlighten us.

alih j on May 24, 2017:

mohammed yusuf on December 07, 2014:

allah the only one powerful,mighty,great.i love allah

altair khan on November 29, 2014:

It is not true because angels are invicible

Fathima Rizwana. on October 18, 2014:

Allah is great. Islam is true.i believe allah. !!!!

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on September 19, 2014:

Everyone has a satan attached to them except one man who had a good jinn attached to him. Everyone will carry out their load of sin in their lifetime as already decreed by God. Non can change that except God himself.

People make choices, so let's leave it at that. Non can change the state of another person except by the will of God.

Elly on September 11, 2014:

No matter what religion we are into. We all believe in the same God. As long as our hearts are pure from sin and love one another and not condemning each other, and not judge each other, and do good things to help the needy, we will see feel the presents of God and he will sent to us Godly images to see. But because we are so corrupted we invited the satan instead. we have choices to make right now! Eternal life or hell?

Allahs knows best

mr farooq on February 12, 2014:

It is most beautifull

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on November 19, 2013:

What i meant by that was Prophet Muhmmad (pbuh) only saw Angel Jibreel in his original angel form.

Narrated 'Aisha: "...Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says."...

Narrated ASSAILANT: ..."Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) informed us that Muhammad had seen Gabriel with six hundred wings."

As you can see from the hadeeths above, the angel also came to the prophet in the form of a man many times.

Fahad on November 14, 2013:

Bro G Miah,

In your article you have pointed out that "Only the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has seen the angel Jibril (Gabriel) at the time of his prophet hood and that was only twice!".

I know that only the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) has seen the angel Jibril (A.S.) but I not able to understand that only TWICE????

Then how come all the Vahis of Quran has been said to the Prophet (P.B.U.H.)?

In only two time complete Quran has been revealed to the Prophet (P.B.U.H.)?

Pls Clarify...

quran teacher online on August 19, 2013:

Salam, InshAllah it will be a hoax, as we know that when Angel Jibreal (A.S) on Hadrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H), the auspicious Angel, reveals revelations was not used to visible even in the presence of Sahaba (R.A).

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on July 17, 2012:

Very true, alhamdulillah!

Sayed.Danish Kazmi on July 15, 2012:

I am agreed from Fathima's reply yes PROPHET said Hazrat Jibreel has huge wings and his foot reach into last layer (7th layer) of earth and his head reach upto 7th layer of sky.....they are angel they have power given by ALLAH (SWT)...i never heard from any person who are live there properly about this miracle only from this video i saw...may be its fake.ALLAH knows well and in the last i want to say that we are muslim we believe on ALLAH'S Qudrat we don't need any proof..ALLAH HU AKABAR....

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on June 07, 2012:

Exactly, hundred percent true.

Lodflawless on June 06, 2012:

Angel neva fall 4 chris oyhakihlome church na 4 saudi d angel beacon come reach

ThussaysNanaMarie from In my oyster on June 05, 2012:

A congregation of prayerful people would have angels around them and in their midst. However, this appears to be a mischievous hoax.

Farah on May 13, 2012:

This is amazing but the Angel looks nothing like the way Allah(SWT) describes it in the wonderful Quran! I'm just...Confused!

erfa from Pakistan on May 04, 2012:

This is a fake. Obviously angels cannot be seen by ordinary mortals. They are invisible to us, isn't that a basic concept?

Abrar khan on April 08, 2012:

Truly angels land on kaba?

ubaid qureshi on March 17, 2012:

landing of the angel on top of kaa'ba is not true .Angels do tawaa'f and may be accidently gets caught in camera this can be true. And Allah knows well

ubaid qureshi on March 17, 2012:

assalam-alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatahu ...

for a moment lets say it is real..........coz as per descriptions angels hav wings and m not sure about their body structure . But at a certain point it is believed that nobody not even angels can sit over the top of holy kaa'ba Allah has not given rights to any one to go above kaa'ba..this is really confusing.......

thank you :)

Fathima on February 24, 2012:

Plz guys don't believe that it is not real. Prophet has said jibreel (ral) 's 1 wing is covering half of the earth and the other 1 is covering another side den if he open his both wings the full earth will covered by his wings dat was the trueth

Khan on January 24, 2012:

People who select/judge religion based on miracle that god will show them to believe in him is senseless.As a Muslim we need to have strong faith in Allah (SWT)like we never saw him but u have strong faith in him. You don't need any miracle like this to believe in Allah (SWT)This type of videos are made by some ignorant people who either wants to make someone revert to Islam by showing some sort of miracle or he is crazy.

Turkic on January 06, 2012:

I believe in Angels to, but this footage can also be fake because nowadays we are able to do everything for example like video editing as in movies. Everyone can do that..

Les Trois Chenes from Videix, Limousin, South West France on December 22, 2011:

The more I read about angels, the more fascinating they become. Interesting hub. Voted up.

Gazala on December 14, 2011:

One should keep a broad mind about these things. Angels are always present at the Holy Kabba. If this was present in the video, it does not surprise this Angel appeared- I do not think it is fake. I just do not know what the fuss is about- as a Muslim I believe in Jinns and Angels. So this Angel must have appeared as visualised in the video.

abdulsamad on December 08, 2011:

this is allaha ka power ok so every person should pray namaj in masjid daily five times ok

sohail on November 26, 2011:

subhan allah, i never seen video like this its such a amzing video and i think every muslim must watch this video

Zubair on November 24, 2011:

The video was edited,with the technology we have at present times,its easy to do that.i can do it

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on November 21, 2011:

Mindprison, if you had read the whole article you will have understood that this article was an investigation into whether the video was true or not, nd the conclusion was that it is a fake.

Thanks for your concern.

mindprison from Pakistan on November 20, 2011:

Bro. please don't share miracles. what would happened in return you will struggle your time to prove that this miracle is genuine. A Muslim will in it a non-muslim will never convinced by these miracle. Do some logical reasoning and try to preach the difference among the scripture what unique you have to offer ...

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on October 24, 2011:

SO true Bbudoyono, We can't see them with our eyes so how can cameras capture them? It's a total hoax.

Everyone above, thank you for leaving your comments.

Bbudoyono on September 13, 2011:

Angel is invisible. How can a camera capture it?

Waqar haider on September 04, 2011:

Today is the time of technology and science this is fake only fake a non-muslim has made this video and we are believing in it don't sell your "eeman" with this video like the video of "gunbad" flying and fitting onto "meenar"in nepal that was also fake there is no mosque at that place now so muslims! Secure yourself from these attacks on your eeman by reciting "taauz"

rahila on July 04, 2011:


Khamza on May 11, 2011:

Most amazing and funny thing in all of this sensational paranormal occurrence is that the camera was directed in the right direction at the right time when it happened. It is like they knew that angel will fly down from the sky. That makes the camera guy more mystical character than angel itself. Deductive conclusion - it is FAKE! Nice work on Adobe Premier although.

Rebecca Fahlin Freelance Copywriter from Duluth Minnesota on April 28, 2011:

I find it interesting that the "angel" is said to be falling. It reminds me of Revelation 12:7-12: " And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethen, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, an you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time."

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on February 23, 2011:

Yes all Muslims inshallah believe in Allah's signs, but this particular one may well be fake.

Only Allah knows.

Thank you for your comment brother.

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on February 18, 2011:

I was hoping it wasn't a hoax, but it is hard to believe. Only Allah knows. Inshallah it is true, but i can't decide for everyone. My opinion is that it is a hoax, and not real because there did not seem like a reaction from the people inside, although it was very quick.

Thank you for your comment brother.

Yusuf Mohammad on February 15, 2011:

This video is amazing InsAllah this is not a hoax.

Gous Ahmed (author) from Muslim Nation on February 15, 2011:

You are right to have said what you have said. But the video depicts an angel that looks like a bird, and maybe it is a bird, but it seems quite dodgy!

As a muslim we believe angels do exist and they can be in many shapes and forms, only Allah swt knows.

Thank you for your comment.

JDeAngelis from Oz on February 15, 2011:

As a muslim it makes no difference to me whether it is real of fake. I believe in Angels because Allah tells us they exist and are working with and praising Him(swt).

I also don't need a miracle to believe in anything I already believe in.
