Israfil ‘The Burning One’, alternate spellings: Israfel, Esrafil is the angel who blows into the trumpet before Armageddon and sometimes depicted as the angel of music. Though unnamed in the Quran, he is one of the four Islamic archangels, the others being long with Mikhail, Jibrail and Azrael. It is believed that Israfil will blow the trumpet from a holy rock in Jerusalem to announce the Day of Resurrection. He is commonly thought as the counterpart of the Judeo-Christian archangel Raphael. Although the name “Israfel” does not appear in the Quran, mention is repeatedly made of an unnamed trumpet-angel assumed to identify this figure: “And the trumpet shall be blown, so all those that are in the heavens and all those that are in the earth shall swoon, except him whom Allah will, then it shall be blown again, then they shall stand up awaiting.” — Qur’an, 39.68. In Islamic tradition, he is said to have been sent, along with the other three Islamic archangels, to collect dust from the four corners of the earth, although only Izra’il succeeded in this mission. It was from this dust that Adam was formed. Israfil has been associated with a number of other angelic names not pertaining to Islam, including Uriel, Sarafiel and Raphael. Certain sources indicate that, created at the beginning of time, Israfil possesses four wings, and is so tall as to be able to reach from the earth to the pillars of Heaven. A beautiful angel who is a master of music, Israfil sings praises to God in a thousand different languages, the breath of which is used to inject life into hosts of angels who add to the songs themselves. According to Sunni traditions reported by Imam Al-Suyuti, the Ghawth or Qutb, is someone who has a heart that resembles that of Archangel Israfil, signifying the loftiness of this angel.
