Notes:

·       Allah is Al-Qodoos, which means the infinite purity. The more pure angels get, the closer they get to Allah.

·       Angles seek closeness to Allah by engaging into the so called “Taqdees”. Taqdees is the process of seeking closeness to Allah by purifying yourself. This is applicable only to the angels because they are at the level of purity. For humans, we seek closeness to Allah by doing Tazkiah, which is cleaning the heart from dirty temptations. Angles don’t have dirty temptations, so they do Taqdees but we humans are not at this level yet. We do Tazkhiah. The word Sanctify in English means to seek Holiness by purifications.
