The Heaven Creaks And It Has Every Right To Creak – Sahih Hadith

Among them (Angels) are those who are in (constant) bowing and prostration to Allah in the heavens.

The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said:

“The heaven Atat (creak) and it has every right to creak.”

And the Atit is the Sarir Ar-Rahl (camel’s creaking). Meaning: If there was a heavy load on top of the camel, you would hear to it a creaking sound due to the heavy weight of the load.

The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said:

“The heaven creaks and it has every right to creak. There is no place that could contain four fingers in the heavens except that there is an Angel standing, bowing, or prostrating to Allah therein.” [1]

So these Angles cover the vastness of the heavens.

[1] Reported by Abmad (5:173), At-Tirmidhi (2312), Ibn Majah (4190) and Al-Hakim (2:510), from Abu Dharr, may Allah be pleased with him. And his wording is: “The heaven creaks, and it has every right to creak. There is no space for four fingers, except that there is an Angel there, placing its head in prostration to Allah.” The Hadith is referenced by Al-Albani in As-Sahihah (1722).
