Islam and the Quran

Is Angel Gabriel going to come back to earth ?

Question: Some people are claiming that according to one of Prophet Muhammad’s hadith, after the death of Prophet Muhammad angel  Gabriel suppose to come back to earth to remove something? Is there any hadith like this?



At the resources of hadith books and rumours, we could not locate in any where of Messenger of Allah’s sayşings that indicate return of Gabriel to earth ten times or more after the death of Prophet Muhammad .

According to Islamic perspective Prophet Muhammad is the last Messenger who was sent to mankind and Gabriel is known as the angel who brought the divine inspiration to him. Thats is why the job of angel Gabriel is completed in a way; unless Allah the Almighty commands for more from him. In addition to that angels come down to earth to complete the given commandments of theirs. So if Allah permits, surely angels can come back to earth. Because Gabriel is an angel and if new  duties are given to him thats when he can come down to earth more likely. This situation can be related with the Surat Al-Qadr:

  سورة الْقَدْرِ

 اِنَّاۤ اَنْزَلْنَاهُ ف۪ي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ  وَمَاۤ اَدْرٰيكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ  لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ اَلْفِ شَهْرٍ  تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلٰۤئِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ ف۪يهَا بِاِذْنِ رَبِّهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ اَمْرٍ  سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتّٰى مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ

  Indeed, We landed the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree. From where you know what is the Night of Decree?  The Night of Decree is better than thousand months. The angels and the Spirit near them descend therein by permission of their Lord for  each commandment. Peace! it is till the break of emergence of dawn. (Surat Al-Qadr 97)
