165: THE ANGELS WHO SEIZE THE SOULS

There is a widespread belief among Muslims community that for gathering the lives of men, Allah has appointed an Angel known as ‘Israail’.

They widely believe that he is the Angel who would gather the lives.

But, there is no reference in Quran or Hadith that there is an Angel named ‘Israail’. There is no evidence also to prove that only one Angel gathers the lives of all men.

 If we scrutinize Quran we will find that there is a verse (32:11) which says that there are Angels to gather the life of every individual. While specifying a group of people it is said in the plural form as ‘the Angels would gather their lives. ’

This can be found in the verses 4:97, 6:93, 8:50, 16:32, 47:27.

Similarly it has been said about the Angels of death in the verses 6:61, 7:37 such as ‘

Our Messengers (Angels) would gather their lives. ’

So the above verses declare that the assumption that there is only one Angel (of death) who can gather the lives of all men is wrong.

Allah has appointed individual Angels who would gather the life of particular person, for the gathering of whose life they were appointed.

So, the only conclusion that we will acquire from Quran and Prophet’s (pbuh) interpretation is that such and such Angel would always be awaiting the command, when should he gather the life of such and such a person for whom he was appointed.

No proof is found there in the religion to support that he has been empowered to gather the lives of all men in the world, but Muslims believe so. That is wrong.

[Refer verses 4:97, 6:93 8:50, 16:28, 16:32, 47:27]
