English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Rifaah bin Rafi Az-Zuraqi (May Allah be pleased with him) said: Jibril (Gabriel) came to the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) and asked him: "How do you estimate among you those who participated in the battle of Badr?” He [SAWW] replied, "They were the best of Muslims” (or he may have said something similar to that). Jibril said: "The same is the case with the angels who were at Badr.” [Al-Bukhari Hadith # 3992].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Naml Ayat 72. “"Perhaps that which you wish to hasten on, may be close behind you” The Hadith highlights the superiority of those Companions, as well those angels, who participated in the battle of Badr against the forces of Kufr. The Qur’an confirms the fact that the angels fought along with Muslims in this historic battle.
