Malaikah Angels

يئلٓ

ٙ

"Angels". Another name for Suratul Fatir. Surah
35 of the Holy Qur' an.
A race of created beings that are made out of light.
Their sole purpose in creation is to worship and
glorify Allah and to perform their duties exactly as
described. They are incapable of disobedience.
They do not eat, or sleep, or procreate. Their exact
number is unknown. Amongst the well-known
ones are the following:
1. The angel Jibreel (Gabriel) - the
angel whose duty is to communicate
between Allah Ta'ala and the
prophets and to whomever Allah
wills; e.g. he was commanded to
communicate

with

Mariam
(Mary,Mother of the Prophet Jesus),
Jesus and Muhammad, may Allah
bless them and grant them peace.
2. The angel Mikaeel (Michael) - the
angel of provisions.

133

3. The angel of Death - takes the souls
of people when they die. Many
Muslims mistakenly call him lirael.
The name "I irael" is neither
mentioned in the Holy Book of Allah,
the Holy Qurtan, nor by Muhammad,
may Allah bless him and grant him
peace, in any of the Ahadeeth. The
name "Izrael" is mentioned in the
Taurat and therefore has been
'borrowed' from the Jews. Beware of
such innovations. Copying the Jews
or any other unbelievers, and then
saying "This is from Allah", is Kufn
4. The angel Israfeel - the angel who
will blow the horn to bring the
universe to its end.
5. The angel Ridwan - keeper of Jannah
(Paradise).
6. The angel Maalik - keeper of Nar
(Hellfire).
7. The angels Munkar and Nakeer - the
two angels who are assigned to
question the souls of the dead in their
graves about their fa ith.
Peace be on all of them. Singular: Malak.
