Etymology of the name IZRAIL.
Meaning of the baby name IZRAIL.

  

IZRAIL (عزرائيل).  Variant form of Arabic Azrael (q.v.), meaning "help of God." 

... In Mohammedan belief, Azrael, also called Izrail, is the angel of death (Koran, surah xxxii, 11), and is often called Malak-al-Maut.  It is he who separates the soul from the body, doing this gently or harshly, as the case may be.  When a man has been God-fearing, the soul leaves as gently as water from a bag; but the soul of an infidel is drawn out as a hot spit out of wet wool.  The angel of death figures also in Jewish literature. (The New International Encyclopaedia, v.2, 1902)
