This article tries to put everything to perspective and give the answers to some of these questions, and give certain knowledge on the rest. First and foremost, who is an archangel?
An archangel is simply a high ranking archangel. These are beings that God created to do exactly his bidding, they are his perfect, attentive messenger who delivers and execute out his word.
It is important to state out that these beings are dependent on faith. The Christian Faith, The Judaism Faith, The Islamic Faith, and Baha'i Faith.
What do they do?
As said earlier, they execute God’s word with precision and perfection. All they think about his God and how to do his work.
Apart from God, they help human beings obey the will of God – which is also the intent of God himself. They help humans with love, understanding, compassion, support and assistance.

According to Islam, four archangels exist; Jibrael (Gabriel), Mikael (Michael), Israfil (Raphael), and Azrael (Azra’il). To some faith, it is seven; Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Jophiel, Ariel, Azrael, and Chamuel. And to some, it is 15, the seven mention above including Haniel, Jeremiel, Jophiel, Metatron, Raguel, Raziel, Sandalphon, and Zadkiel.
