Raphael Angel

Raphael (/rfil/; Hebrew:, translit. Rpl, lit. ‘God heals’; Raphael (Ancient Greek: P; Coptic: Rafaêl; Arabic:, Raf’l, or Isrfl; Amharic:, Rufael) is an archangel attested in the books of Tobit and 1 Enoch, both of which date from the last few centuries before Christ. Later Jewish tradition recognised him as one of Abraham’s three heavenly visits at the Oak of Mamre. He is not mentioned in the Christian New Testament or the Quran, but subsequent Christian tradition associated him with healing and identified him as the angel who agitated the waters in John 5:2-4. In Islam, where he is known as Israfil, he is considered to be the unidentified angel described in Quran 6:73, who forever stands with a trumpet to his lips, preparing to announce the Day of Resurrection.
