Angels - 41 Angels from the Abrahamic Religions  

angels300

Angels exist in Jewish, Christian and Islamic Scripture

It is believed that God created Angels out of light, before He created humans from earth and clay. Angels are naturally obedient creatures, worshipping God and carrying out His commands. As such, they have no free choice and cannot disobey God.

Belief in Angels is one of the six Articles of Faith in Islam. The table below lists a few popular Angels in the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Abaddon

1.  Angel of Destruction Abaddon is the Angel of the bottomless pit who appears to be a ruler of evil spirits as described in the book of Revelation.
Ariel 2.   Angel of Personification of Israel
Azrael
Azrael
3.  Angel of Death Azrael is responsible for parting the soul from the body. He is not mentioned by name, only referred as Malak Al-Maut, meaning Angel of Death in the Quran
Barachiel 4.   Angel of Lightning Blessings/Guardian Angels
Beelzebul 5.  Prince of Demons In the Testament of Solomon, Beelzebul appears as prince of the demons and says that he was formerly a leading heavenly angel. Seemingly, Beelzebul here is simply Lucifer. Beelzebul claims to cause destruction through tyrants, to cause demons to be worshipped among men, to excite priests to lust, to cause jealousies in cities and murders and to bring on war.
Camael 6.   Leader of the Powers/Dominions
Cassiel 7.   Angel of Solitude/Tears
Darda'il 8.  The Journeyers Angels who travel in the earth searching out assemblies where people remember God's name

  • Appeared to Daniel as a man and gave him the meaning of a visio
  • Appeared to Zechariah who was serving in the temple in order to announce the birth of John the Baptist
  • Appeared to Mary, informing her that she would be the mother of Jesus
  • In the Quran, God sent Gabriel to Mary, and he came to her in the shape of a man in every respect. God commanded him to blow into a gap of her garment and that breath went into her womb through her private part; this is how Jesus was conceived
  • Appeared to Muhammad and taught him the Quran verse by verse

Muaqqibat 20.   The Protectors
Angels who keep people from death until its decreed time and who bring down blessings.
