Azrael is the “angel of death,” in the most beautiful and healing sense of the word. This is a far cry from the morbid image of a grim reaper stealing people away. Azrael, in contrast, is a grief counselor who lovingly guides souls to Heaven after their crossing. He then consoles the survivors and helps them heal from grief. Islamic theology holds that Azrael carries out God’s will for the souls of the deceased with profound reverence.
Azrael is sometimes confused with the similar-sounding name Azazael, who is considered a demon or fallen angel. Yet their personas, missions, and energies couldn’t be more different. Our Azrael is a pure and trustworthy being of God’s light.
When To Call On Archangel Azrael
Azrael helps with all aspects of loss, death, and transitions. If your heart is heavy with grief, call upon Azrael for healing and support. Loss can take many forms, and grief is the normal reaction to any kind of ending. Fortunately, Archangel Azrael is there to catch us whenever we fall.
In addition to the grief stricken, Archangel Azrael helps those who perform grief counseling. At your request, Azrael can guide your speech as you talk to a bereaved person so that you choose comforting words. Azrael can also help you deliver a beautiful eulogy.
If you’re a professional counselor, then you know how often unhealed grief morphs into emotional and relationship issues, addictions, and other psychological maladies. So it’s a good idea to invite Azrael into your healing practice.
