English: Azrael is typically known as one of the names of the angel of death. It is an English form of the Arabic name Ezra'il or Ezra'eil (عزرایل), the name traditionally attributed to the angel of death in Islam, although the Qur'an never uses this name, usually using instead Malak al-Maut (which translates directly as angel of death). It is also spelled Izrail, Izrael, Azrail, Azraille, or Ozryel. Chambers English dictionary uses the spelling Azrael. The name literally means Assistant(helper) of God.
