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 is the Angel of the bottomless pit who appears to be a ruler of evil spirits as described in the book of Revelation.

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
Angel of Lightning Blessings/Guardian Angels
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.
Leader of the Powers/Dominions
Angel of Solitude/Tears
