How many wings Angle have?
Does Quran and Hadith contradict on number of wings an angle can have?
Some People opt to contradict Quranic verse 35:1 with some Hadith. The Quranic verse 35:1 states
"[All] praise is [due] to Allah , Creator of the heavens and the earth, [who] made the angels messengers having wings, two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent."
Some people contradict this Quranic saying with a Hadith
Narrated Abu Ishaq-Ash-Shaibani:
I asked Zir bin Hubaish regarding the Statement of Allah: "And was at a distance Of but two bow-lengths Or (even) nearer; So did (Allah) convey The Inspiration to His slave (Gabriel) and then he (Gabriel) Conveyed (that to Muhammad)." (53.9-10) On that, Zir said, "Ibn Mas'ud informed us that the Prophet had seen Gabriel having 600 wings." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 455
Regarding the Verses: ‘And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer; So did (Allah) convey the Inspiration to His slave (Gabriel) and then he (Gabriel) conveyed (that to Muhammad…)’ (53.9-10). Ibn Mas'ud narrated to us that the Prophet had seen Gabriel with six hundred wings. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 379) ‘And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer. So did Allah convey the Inspiration to His slave (Gabriel) and then he (Gabriel) conveyed that to Muhammad.’ (53.10) He said, "Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) informed us that Muhammad had seen Gabriel with six hundred wings." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 380)
How can Gabriel have 600 wings when Angels can only have four?
Well there is not such limit of wings for Angels it can have more then four or even more then 600
There is no contradiction because Quran says that Allah increase in His creations what ever he pleases or likes. The number four isn't a restricted number and the verse itself states that Allah can increase it if he wills
"Praise be to Allah, Who created (out of nothing) the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels, messengers with wings,- two, or three, or four (pairs): He adds to Creation as He pleases: for Allah has power over all things."
"All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the (only) Originator [or the (only) Creator] of the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels messengers with wings, - two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Verily, Allah is Able to do all things."
"Praise be to Allah, The Originator (Literally: The Renderer) of the heavens and the earth, The Maker of the Angels (as) Messengers endowed with wings, two, three and four. (Literally: in twos and in therrs, and in fours) He increases in creation as He decides; surely Allah is Ever-Determiner over everything."
