Angels  

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.
