NO ANGEL BEARS AZRAIL (ASARAILU) IN THE QUR'AN AND HADITH
Praise be to Allah.
It is widely assumed that the name of the Angel of Death is Azra’il, but there is nothing in the Quran or saheeh sunnah (authentic teachings) of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to indicate that this is his name. Rather this is narrated in some reports which may be from among the Israiliyyat (reports from Jewish sources).
Azrael (Biblical Hebrew is an angel in the Abrahamic religions. He is often identified with the Angel of Destruction and Renewal of the Hebrew Bible.
Based on this, we cannot be certain whether this is his name or not. So we cannot affirm that the name of the Angel of Death is Azra’il, nor can we deny it. Rather we should refer this matter to Allah and call him as Allah calls him, the ‘Angel of Death”.
قُلْ يَتَوَفَّاكُم مَّلَكُ الْمَوْتِ الَّذِي وُكِّلَ بِكُمْ ثُمَّ إِلَى رَبِّكُمْ تُرْجَعُونَ
(interpretation of the meaning):
“Say: The angel of death, who is set over you, will take your souls. Then you shall be brought to your Lord.” [32:11]
The name of the Angel of Death is not given in the Quran or in the saheeh ahadeeth (reports).
Shaykh al-Albani said in his comment on the words of al-Tahhawi, “We believe in the Angel of Death who is appointed to take the souls of all creatures”:
This (“the Angel of Death”) is what he is called in the Quran. With regard to the name Azra’lel which is widely known among the people, there is no basis for this, rather it comes from the Israiliyyat.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:
“The Angel of Death” is well known by the name Azra’il, but this is not correct, rather this was narrated from Jewish sources. So we should not believe in this name, and we should call the one who is appointed over death “the Angel of Death,” as Allah called him in Qur'an 32:11.
Fatawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen.
I also heard this in one of the audios of Sheikh Mohammad bn Ali Jabata titled "Life after death Part 3" where he said the angel of death is Malaku L Maut not Asarailu, and he gave evidences to back his statement as we all know him as a man of KOLALAHU KOLAROSUL.
It is very sad that up till today some Muslims don't know that the Angel of Death is not Azrail or Asarailu. The people of innovation (Alu bid'ah) have done a lot of harm to our deen. But we give thanks to Allah that Sunnah is now purifying all.
It is Malaku L Maut (Angel of Death) not AZRAIL (ASARAILU ).
سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك أشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت أستغفرك وأتوب إلي
