According to the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments, angels are assigned different duties and these are supernatural powers. Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael are among the most popular and prominent angels.
It is not possible for us to say how many of them are actually present.
According to Islam, angels are mentioned many times in Holy Quran and Hadith. This religion has given clear descriptions of the nature and duties of angels. God sends them to perform varying duties.
An example of a task they carry out is that of testing individuals by granting them abundant wealth and by providing recovery from diseases.
Believing in angels is as important as we believe in Allah and Holy Prophet (PBUH) as well as His other prophets of the history.
Some examples of angels in Islam include: Jibrail who serves as a messenger from God, Michael (archangel) who is angel of nature, Israfil who is the angel of the trumpet in Islam, and other important ones are Izra’il, Darda’il, Kiraman Katibin, Munkar and Nakir, Ridwan, Maalik, as well as Harut and Marut.
On the other hand, the Brahma Kumaris has used the term “angel” to refer to a perfect, or complete state of the human being. They are of view that angels attain a perfect state when they get connected with God with their good deeds.
Angels are typically depicted as having wings, and are of bright white light, though no human eye is ever able to see them until or unless God permits.
There are many concepts and theories provided about angels by the scholars of Dubai, New York, Toronto, London, and Istanbul, but this is not clear anywhere of how many they are.
