Muwakils and Shadows


As-Salam alaykum,

Beloved ones, after taking baya I experienced many things that I couldn’t explain. One thing that I have no idea about is something recently mentioned on eShaykh about muwakil beings. I read somewhere that the strongest ones appear in shadows or something….When I was praying there seemed to be something moving within my shadow that was trying to hide, but showed just enough for me to be sure something was there and I’m not crazy. Wondering if anyone can explain a bit, Insha’Allah. Many thanks. Much love…


Alaykum Salam,

May Allah put blessings in your bayaa and benefit you here and hereafter.
What you mentioned may be possible, for example the recording angels “in charge” (muwakkal) of every human beings. However, spiritual beings, jinn, and humans are all in the same boat so do not heed what is of no concern to us; rather, especially in Salat (prayer), forget all helpless creatures and leave this world behind as you are facing Divine Mercy and should pay no attention to anything else.
