The first thing I would like to point out is the fact that souls were crying to God that they could not 'go out' in the face of the iniquity which is
being committed on Earth. In other words, they could not return to their families. Remember, baptism is the immersion of the soul into a body. We
are here for life and to complete our work here. In light of what was taking place, there was no room for incarnation.
9.10 And now behold the souls which have died cry out and complain unto
the Gate of Heaven, and their lament has ascended, and they cannot go out
in the face of the iniquity which is being committed on the earth.
The chapter ends with this lament to God.
9.11 And you know everything, before it happens, and you know this, and
what concerns each of them. But you say nothing to us. What ought we to
do with them, about this?"
I start at the end of this chapter to show you that God already know the outcome. It was planned and part of the overall process. Here is where it
6.1 And it came to pass, when the sons of men had increased, that in those
days there were born to them fair and beautiful daughters.
6.2 And the Angels, the sons of Heaven, saw them and desired them. And
they said to one another: "Come, let us choose for ourselves wives, from
the children of men, and let us beget, for ourselves, children."
Compare this to chapter six of Genesis.
6 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Did God know how long this would last? Yes. There are seven sevens in a full 50 years jubilee. 120 X 50 is 6000 years.
6.3 And Semyaza, who was their leader, said to them:
"I fear that you may not wish this deed to be done and that I alone will pay
for this great sin."
6.4 And they all answered him, and said:
"Let us all swear an oath, and bind one-another with curses, so not to alter
this plan, but to carry out this plan effectively."
6.5 Then they all swore together and all bound one another with curses to
6.6 And they were, in all, two hundred and they came down on Ardis,
which is the summit of Mount Hermon. And they called the mountain
Hermon because on it they swore and bound one another with curses.
6.7 And these are the names of their leaders:
Semyaza, who was their leader, Urakiba, Ramiel, Kokabiel, Tamiel,
Ramiel, Daniel, Ezeqiel, Baraqiel, Asael, Armaros, Ananel, Zaqiel,
Samsiel, Satael, Turiel, Yomiel, Araziel.
6.8 These are the leaders of the two hundred Angels and of all the others
Curiously, there are nearly 140 heads of state that attend the UN council of nations. 190 nations.
Compare this to Revelation. Who were the letters of the churches addressed to? Angels.
20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven
churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write;
You get the idea.
Back to Enoch
7.1 And they took wives for themselves and everyone chose for himself
one each. And they began to go into them and were promiscuous with
them. And they taught them charms and spells, and they showed them the
cutting of roots and trees.
7.2 And they became pregnant and bore large giants.
The commentary suggests that the reference to giants may have been stature. The next verse says 3000 cubits. By comparing to Adam at 60 cubits, we
may have 180 foot giants. I would suggest the same thing the commentary says and suggest that they were leaders. A cubit is 18 inches, making a
giant 4500 feet tall. I think it is obvious the ratio is 3 times larger than Adam if we can believe what the Quran writer knew.
The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall. When He created him, He said to him, "Go and greet that group of angels, and listen
to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring." So, Adam said (to the angels), As-Salamu
Alaikum (i.e. Peace be upon you). The angels said, "As-salamu Alaika wa Rahmatu-l-lahi" (i.e. Peace and Allah's Mercy be upon you). Thus the angels
added to Adam's salutation the expression, 'Wa Rahmatu-l-lahi,' Any person who will enter Paradise will resemble Adam (in appearance and figure).
For me, it's clear that stature of the person was what was stated. Assuming Adam at 6 feet, we could even say that the giants were 18 feet.

7.3 These devoured all the toil of men; until men were unable to sustain
7.4 And the giants turned against them in order to devour men.
7.5 And they began to sin against birds, and against animals, and against
reptiles, and against fish, and they devoured one another's flesh, and drank
the blood from it.
7.6 Then the Earth complained about the lawless ones.
8.1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and daggers, and shields, and
breastplates. And he showed them the things after these, and the art of
making them; bracelets, and ornaments, and the art of making up the eyes,
and of beautifying the eyelids, and the most precious stones, and all kinds
of coloured dyes. And the world was changed.
Indeed, the world is changed. We live with the results. God's plan was to see this to the end.
