This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

The main four angels in Islam are the following:

Jibreel/Gabriel, meaning "God is my strength", brings revelations from God to His messengers

Mikaeel/Mikhaeel/Michael, meaning "who is like God?", it is unclear what his job is

Israfil/Raphael, meaning "God heals" or "the Burning One", angel of the trumpet that ends the world

Izraeel/Azrael/Azra-eel, meaning "whom God helps" (the person helped by God), angel of death

The first two angels are mentioned by name in the Quran, the last two are not mentioned.
