Why are angels NOT visible to human,


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.
The angels are made by Allah The Almighty
invisible to mankind for great wisdoms, one
of which, as mentioned by the scholars, is
that humans do not have the ability to see
angels because they are created from light
which no man is able to look at. In his
commentary on the following Quranic verse
(which means): {And if We had made him an
angel, We would have made him [appear as]
a man, and We would have covered them
with that in which they cover themselves}
[Quran 6:9], Ibn Katheer said: “It is
reported from Ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allah be
pleased with him, that he said, commenting
on Allah's Saying (which means): {And if We
had made him an angel, We would have made
him [appear as] a man}: “Were an angel to be
sent to them, he would have come to them
only in the form of a man, because they
could not look at the angels, because of the
light (from which they are created).”
Another wisdom may be that Allah tests His
slaves by asking them to believe in the angels
who are, for them, a part of the unseen.

There may be further wisdoms we do not
know of. Truly, it is Allah Who is the Wise,
the Well-Acquainted.
Allah Knows best.
