When Allah was creating the world, the angels asked why He was creating humans. Why would Allah create humans with free will when this would lead to mischief, suffering and disobedience? Humans are also distracted by desires and temptation, surely they would go astray?
Yet when the angels observe us here in the dunya (world) they are amazed. They are impressed that there are humans who worship Allah without seeing Him, who praise Allah without seeing the full might of His power and who thank Allah for what they have in this world. Some of us have proven the angels wrong.
Then they ask Allah to give us the best! Live a life that causes the angels to mention your name to Allah.
