The Four Archangels in Charge of Earth

There are four angels and their innumerable retinues in charge of this world.

The first is
Gabriel and his armies. He is in charge of soldier-angels and revelation. Gabriel insures victory and is responsible for the extinction of nations: human, animal, vegetal, or others, when God wills it.

The second is
Michael and his armies, in charge of rain and vegetation. He conveys sustenance to nurture mankind.

The third is
`Azra'il the angel of death and his assistants. They are in charge of seizing the souls of those who die.

The fourth is
Israfil and his assistants, in charge of the Hour of the Day of Judgment.

When the earth has passed away God will order these angels to bring forth their scrolls and they will bring them. Then God will order them to open the Book of Life. They will then find that their scrolls are the same as it.
