Angels are the Names of Heavenly Bodies and Spirits of Stars?

The allegation raised is that apparently Ahmad(as) said that the angels are the names of heavenly bodies and spirits of stars and whatever happens, occurs under the influence of the stars. In reality what Ahmad(as) stated was :

 

‘It appears clearly from certain indications in the Qur’an that some pure beings that are called angels have a distinct relationship with heavenly bodies. Some of them drive the wind and some cause rain to descend and some others cause other influences to descend upon the earth. There is no doubt that those creation would be related to the bright and illuminated stars that are in heaven, but this relationship that exists between them should not be deemed to be the relationship that exists between every animate and its soul.Those pure spirits have, on account of the brightness and light they possess, spiritually an indeterminate relationship with the bright stars which is so strong that, if it were supposed that those pure spirits had departed from those stars, the faculties of the later would be upset. It is through the hidden power of those spirits that the stars carry out their functions. It might be said that as God Almighty is, as it were, the life of the universe, those illumined spirits are, as it were, the life of the planets and the stars and by their departure the condition of the planets and the stars is bound to be disrupted” (Tauzeeh Maram, Pages 37-38, Ruhani Khazain Volume 2, Page 70)

 

The passage itself makes it clear that Ahmad(as) has explained that the angels are the driving force behind the heavenly bodies and these heavenly bodies include the stars. He had the opinion that if the angels had to withdraw their support of the stars, the faculties of the stars would be disrupted as they are the life of the planets and it is through the hidden powers which Allah has blessed the angels which, that the stars are able to fulfill their functions. No where did Ahmad(as) state that angels are the names of heavenly bodies. This is just another lie of the anti Ahmadi Muslims.
