Believers are also mentioned at the end of the surah(surah Baqarah last two Ayats): In this verse, it is mentioned first to believe in Allah, because every rational person first argues for the existence of the Creator, then it is mentioned to believe in the angels
so they are mentioned in the second degree, then there is the remembrance of believing in the books because the books are the revelations which the angels convey from Allah to the prophets I mention Then there is the mention of faith in the apostles and they say that we do not differentiate between any of these apostles in believing, just as the Jews and the Christians differed that some believed in the prophets and some did not۔(surah Baqarah last 2 Ayat in English)
