The Qur’an describes how Azrael discover the names of the dying ones. God reveals the names of the people to him when their death is about to come.

Angel Axrael does not know who is going to the following to die until God reveals the name.

After receiving the person’s name, he begins to prepare him or her. He separates the person’s soul from his physical body. After that, he returns the person’s soul to God.

The Christian religion also considers him The Angel of Death. In fact, there aren’t sacred texts which describe this angel as such, but Christians keep associating him with this harmful moment.

Traditions in Asia also describe Archangel Azrael as such. They depict him holding an apple from The Tree of Life at the nose of the person that is dying.

This is a ritual which helps the person in separating the soul from his or her physical body.

In fact, we can say that he is our lives’ patron. Every time someone is born, this angel writes down the name of that person in an enormous book up in Heaven.

And, after the death of this person, he erases the name from this book.
