Little known angel
Out of the 10 angels listed above, the following three Angels may not be as well known.
Angel of Zabaniah
Zabaniah is the name of an angel who was in charge of tormenting those in hell. He is portrayed as having a very fierce and sadistic figure, unforgiving to the one who has entered the belly of hell. Zabaniah had 19 angels according to the number of letters Basmallah and they were led by the Angel Maalik.
The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever wants Allah to save him from the treatment of the 19 angels of Zabaniah (the guardian angel of Hell), then read Bismillahirrahmanirrahim, for Allah has made for him, from every single letter a Heaven.”
The angel of Zabaniah took the members of hell by the use of his hands and feet. Then one of the angels of Zabaniah could take 10,000 unbelievers with one hand, and 10,000 with the other hand, and 10,000 with one foot and 10,000 with the other, and cast them into hell. So the 40,000 unbelievers at one time took it upon themselves because the Angel of Zabaniah had great power and ability.
Angels of Harut and Marut
The angels called Harut and Marut were angels sent by God to teach good things to the Babylonians at that time in the midst of anxiety and confusion caused by the spread of magic. The beginning of the spread of magic began when King Nebuchadnezzar’s captives, the Jews, began to practice magic, and the Jews were well-known and well-versed in witchcraft.
They began to frighten the Babylonians with witchcraft so that the Babylonians became frightened and uneasy as the magic was able to spread disease and other harmful things. Then God sent two angels, Harut and Marut to the city of Babylon to dispel the fears and worries of the Babylonians over the effects of the magic. Harut and Matut were sent to teach the Babylonians magic, but not to commit crimes. They taught the Babylonians magic only to provide knowledge of the magic.
