Is it possible for angels to appear at different places at a time?
This question is one of the most asked questions. “How is it that angels can exist at one place and get things done at the same time?” The reason why people get this topic wrong is heavily stemmed from man’s regarding his faculties as infallible.This question is one of the most asked questions.

The Sixteenth Word from Bediuzzamans Risale-i Nur Collection might be the best answer for this question. It has been first explained that human being, who is a dense and physical being, is reflected in a number of mirrors at a time but the mirrors do not really possess those characteristics, on the other hand, the sun, which is a physical-luminous object, can be reflected in the mirrors with its light, heat, and color. Through this example, Bediuzzaman explains that angels, who are luminous beings, can exist personally at different places at a time.
As for the question of existing at different places at a time, Bediuzzaman gives an excellent example in the book entitled Flashes: Words.
Hearing words at the same time by different ears is much more marvelous thing than the suns being reflected in mirrors. Here, words do not send out their reflections to ears, but they themselves get in there.
We can look into the case of angels by this excellent comparison. Yet, however could we fully understand the nature of angels without seeing them, while we cannot even know of our own soul and the souls of animals even if we see them?
Let us finish our words with a final sentence from Bediuzzaman:
Human reasoning cannot fully comprehend it, but only angels themselves can.
