What were angels created from and what are the duties of Angels?

Angels are luminous creatures that were created from light. As Allah created angels from light, He also created them from meaning, air, words and also luminous and pleasant matters such as ether. (ether: is a matter that lets electricity, light and warmth move).

Angels are responsible for all kinds of tasks in the universe either material or spiritual. Every created being has an appointed peculiar angel. There is an angel that observes everything from the movement of electrons around the nucleus to the falling of rain drops from the fall of meteors to the movements of planets. Every angel acclaims the divine works that they observe and represent the glorification of that creature in the inner world. They get spiritual pleasure while they are performing these tasks and they perform them caressively without rebelling.
