The Gatherings that Remember Allah

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 When you are in a gathering of remembrance, Allah speaks highly of you to his angels. Why is Allah talking about you? Why is Allah talking about us in front of the angels?

When Allah decided to create us, meaning humans, and specifically, Adam (as), the angels had a problem, and they said to Allah, “Why do you want to create these humans that will cause mischief and bloodshed in the world? Allah answered, “What I know, you do not know”.

Allah then created Adam (as), and all the other humans until now. Allah created us so that when we sit to remember Allah, when we sit to think about our position, when we sit and think about our lives, how close we have become to Allah, or the other way, how faraway are we from Allah? When we sit and do this, Allah uses this to prove the angels, who said that we would cause mischief and bloodshed on earth, and He says, here they are remembering Me!  The Prophet (saw) mentions, that one of the benefits of these kind of gatherings is that Allah talks highly about those people who are present in front of the angels.
