Name Root:
ʿAZRIʾEL > ‛ezrâ' > ʿIzrāʾīl / Azra'eil
This name derives from the Arabic “ʿIzrāʾīl / Azra’eil,” from the Hebrew “‘ezra â’,’” meaning “one whom God helps, God is my helper, angel of death.” Azrael is an Archangel in the Abrahamic religions. He is often identified with the Angel of Destruction and Renewal of the Hebrew Bible. Islamic-Arabic tradition adopts the name, in the Arabic language as ʿAzrāʾīl. He is responsible for transporting the souls of the deceased after death. Along with Jibrail, Mīkhā'īl, and Isrāfīl, the Angel of Death, called Azrail, is one of the archangels of the Islamic faith. He and his subordinate angels are responsible for taking the souls of the deceased away from the body. In Judaism, Azrael is identified as the Angel of Death. However, the name “Azrael” itself is rarely used in Hebrew lore. In Jewish mysticism, he is commonly referred to as “Azriel,” not “Azrael.” There is no reference to Azrael in the Christian Bible, and as such, Azrael is regarded as neither a canonical nor a non-canonical figure in Christianity.
