Archangel Azrael is often thought to be the angel of death, Azrael is portrayed as residing in the Third Heaven, he has four faces and four thousand wings, and his whole body consists of eyes and tongues, the number of which corresponds to the number of people inhabiting the Earth. Some portray him as holding a scythe and wearing a hood – hence the image of the grim reaper. He will be the last to die, recording and erasing constantly in a large book the names.
For some Archangel Azrael appears on Earth in human form and hits sinful people on the head with his scythe to kill them and extract their souls from their bodies. Then he takes their souls to hell.
