An Angel from Islamic tradition who will blow his trumpet on the Day of Judgement. He is thus known as the Angel of music. He looked after Mohammed for 3 years. He gazes into the Hell 3 times each day and 3 times each night. Out of compassion for those there he sheds many tears. These are taken away by Allah before the Angel floods the world. He has many heads and many tongue. He has the sweetest voice of all creation. He has four wings and is covered in hair.
