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.

    Please note that Izareel wasn’t mentioned in the Quran nor in the Hadeeth.

    Also, you forgot to mentioned “Malek”, the angel who is in charge of the Hell.
