Did they witness their creation? Their testimony will be recorded and they will be questioned.''" {{Quran|43|19}} (2) "''Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names. But they have no knowledge therein.''" {{Quran|53|27}} (3) "''Then ask them whether your Lord has daughters and they have sons. Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses? Now surely it is of their own lie that they say:''"{{Quran|37|149}}</ref> Is this not sexism?
