Archangel Azrael
Azrael (/ˈæzriəl/; Hebrew: עֲזַרְאֵל‎, romanized: ʿÁzarʾēl; Arabic: عزرائيل‎, romanized: ʿAzrāʾīl or ʿEzrāʾīl) is the angel of death in Islam and some traditions of Judaism.[2] He is also referenced in Sikhism.[3]

Relative to similar concepts of such beings, Azrael holds a rather benevolent role as God's angel of death, wherein he acts as a psychopomp, responsible for transporting the souls of the deceased after their death.[4] Both in Islam and Judaism, he is said to hold a scroll concerning the fate of mortals, recording and erasing their names at their birth and death, respectively.[5][6]: 234 

Depending on the perspective and precepts of the various religions in which he is a figure, he may also be portrayed as a resident of the Third Heaven, a division of heaven in Judaism, Islam and Christianity.[7] In Islam, he is one of the four archangels, and is identified with the Quranic Malak al-Mawt (ملك الموت‎, 'angel of death'), which corresponds with the Hebrew-language term Mal'akh ha-Maweth (מלאך המוות‎) in Rabbinic literature. In Hebrew, Azrael translates to 'Angel of God' or 'Help from God'.[7]
