However the Archangels like Gabriel. Michael and Ezrail each has subordinates of his kind resembling him and supervised by him. At the time of the death of a good righteous one first some angels come to him with smiles and radiant faces and they are followed by either Ezrail himself or Ezrail and his subordinates who are charged with taking the souls of the good or only a subordinate of Ezrail. The Quranic verses. By those who pluck out violently; by those who draw out gently (79:1-2) indicate that the angels who take the souls of the righteous are different from those who are responsible for taking the souls of the wicked. The souls of the wicked are plucked out violently; they have a Chapter frightened face at death.
