In addition, in the 98th verse of Surat al-Baqara, Allah Almighty describes those who are hostile to angels as unbelievers, and it is stated that those who are in such a situation are enemies of Allah.
Not believing in angels means not believing in the revelation, which is the duty of angels, the book that came to the prophets and the religion they conveyed. Because religious decrees were revealed to the prophets through angels.
