Question 7
List five prominent Angels of Allah and explain their functions.

This question was found attractive to virtually all the candidates. They did not only attempt it in
multitudes, they also scored very high there. They were able to find answers in prominent Angels such as
Jibril who is the leader of the angelic world and an agent of revelation to prophets of Allah, Muhammad
(S. A. W.) in particular; Mika'Il who is in charge of rain and distribution of means of sustenance; Azra'il
who is in charge of soul-taking; Raqib and i\tid who are in charge of good and bad deeds of man, by
the right and left hand sides of whom they respectively stay to record them.
