Azrael is an angel often associated with being the Angel of Death, particularly in Islam, Hebrew lore, and Sikhism.
What the Qur'an StatesEdit
The Qur'an never uses this name, rather referring to Malak al-Maut (which translates directly as Angel of Death). Also spelled Izrail, Azrin, Izrael, Azriel, Azrail, Ezraeil, Azraille, Azryel, Ozryel, or Azraa-eel, the Chambers English dictionary uses the spelling Azrael. The name literally means One Whom God Helps in an adaptive form of Hebrew.
