the main Angels in Islam

Posted on: May 25, 2011

- By name of Allah , the Compassionate ,the Merciful:

All the praises and thanks are to Allâh, the Originator of the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels messengers with wings, – two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Verily, Allâh is Able to do all things. Whatever of mercy  Allâh may grant to mankind, none can withhold it, and whatever He may withhold, none can grant it thereafter. And He is the All¬Mighty, the All¬Wise

[35 ] 1-2 ) Fatir


Behold they not the birds subjected in the firmament of the heaven? Naught supporteth them save Allah; verily therein are signs for people who believe.16 [79]

Some examples on the angels in Islam:

The Almighty Allah says:

“Say: Whoever is an enemy to Jabreel-for he brings down the (revelation) to thy heart by Allah’s will, a confirmation of what went before, and guidance and glad tidings for those who believe. Whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and apostles, to Jabreel and Mikhail, Lo! Allah is an enemy to those who reject Faith.”
( Holy Quran : chapter 2 : verses 97-98 ) Al-Baqara (The Cow)

3. Israfil is the angel of doom. Although the name “Israfel” does not appear in the Qur’an(The Qur’an never uses this name,) mention is repeatedly made of an unnamed trumpet-angel assumed to identify this figure.

“And the trumpet shall be blown, so all those that are in the heavens and all those that are in the earth shall swoon, except Allah; then it shall be blown again, then they shall stand up awaiting.” —Qur’an (39.68).

4. the angel of death.

” Say: The Angel of Death, put in charge of you, will (duly) take your souls: then shall ye be brought back to your Lord.”
( Holy Quran : chapter 32 : verse 11 ) As-Sajda (The Prostration, Worship, Adoration)

Also, Muslims believe in:

5. The two angels for each person who are on his shoulders to record his deeds, both the good and the bad.

“Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his doings) learn (and noted them), one sitting on the right and one on the left. . Not a word does he utter but there is a sentinel by him, ready (to note it). “
( Holy Quran : chapter 50 : verses 17-18 ) Qaf ((the Letter), ( Q ))
Also, Allah says :

” But verily over you (are appointed angels) to protect you,- 11. Kind and honourable,- Writing down (your deeds): 12. They know (and understand) all that ye do. 13. As for the Righteous, they will be in bliss; 14. And the Wicked – they will be in the Fire, 15. Which they will enter on the Day of Judgment “
( Holy Quran : Chapter 82 : verses 10 -15 ) Al-Infitar (The Cleaving, Bursting Apart)

6. Throne-beares.
“And the angels will be on its sides, and eight will, that Day, bear the Throne of thy Lord above them.””
( Holy Quran : chapter 69 : verse 17 ) Al-Haqqa (The Reality)
The Almighty Allah mentions their supplication to Him in other verses:

“Those who sustain the Throne (of Allah. and those around it Sing Glory and Praise to their Lord; believe in Him; and implore Forgiveness for those who believe: “Our Lord! Thy Reach is over all things, in Mercy and Knowledge. Forgive, then, those who turn in Repentance, and follow Thy Path; and preserve them from the Penalty of the Blazing Fire! “And grant, our Lord! that they enter the Gardens of Eternity, which Thou hast promised to them, and to the righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their posterity! For Thou art (He), the Exalted in Might, Full of Wisdom “
( Holy Quran : Chapter 40 : verses 7 -8 ) Ghafir (The Believer, The Forgiver (god))

7. Malik is the guarian angel of hell.
They will cry: “O Malik! would that thy Lord put an end to us!” He will say, “Nay, but ye shall abide!” “
( Holy Quran: Chapter 43: verse 77) Az-Zukhruf (Ornaments Of Gold, Luxury)
Allah talks about the angels of the hell in other verses:

“Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire! 27. And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is? 28. Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!- 29. Darkening and changing the colour of man! 30. Over it are Nineteen. 31. And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, “What symbol doth Allah intend by this ?” Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. “
( Holy Quran : Chapter 74 : verses 26-31 ) Al-Muddaththir (The Cloaked One, The Man Wearing A Cloak)

8. Angels who are called ” Hafada” which can be translated as ” protecters”, they are responsible for protecting the human & saving him from dangers.

“For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah…”
(Holy Quran: chapter 13 : verse 11 ) Ar-Ra’d (The Thunder)

9. Angels who have no job to do except worshipping Allah & glorifying His Great name & they are too many as the prophet Muhammad told & also they are mentioned in the Holy Quran. Allah says:

” Those who are near to thy Lord, disdain not to do Him worship: They celebrate His praises, and bow down before Him.”
( Holy Quran: Chapter 7 : verse 206 ) Al-A’raf (The Heights)

10. The two angels Harout & Marout , who are mentioned & their story in the Holy Quran :
“They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harout and Marout ….”

( Holy Quran : chapter 2 : verse 102 ) Al-Baqara (The Cow)
