Isʹrafilʹ

.

The angel of music, who possessed the most melodious voice of all God’s creatures. This is the angel who is to sound the Resurrection Trump, and will ravish the ears of the saints in paradise. Israfil, Gabriel, and Michael were the three angels that warned Abraham of Sodom’s destruction. (Sale: Koran.)

“A winged band, commanded by Israfil, the angel of the resurrection, came to meet Roland.”—Croquemitaine, ii. 9.
