This is an excerpt from my book The Complete Encyclopedia of Angels:
Israfil is the angel who brings us the music of the celestial spheres and blows the trumpet on judgment day. He is a beautiful angel with four wings. Arabic lore says Israfil spent three years with Mohamed and initiated him as a prophet. His name refers to the burning one because he assists people in burning off their limiting thoughts and the result of their old behaviors. Israfil so deeply loves all people that his tears of grief at our needless suffering would have flooded the earth if Allah had not stopped them.
Israfil encourages us to sing and write songs. His angelic voice enfolds the listener in love, regenerating the body, mind and soul. He inspires people to sing and to lift their spirits. Israfil will fill your heart with a deep sense of gratitude and help you see what a miracle it is to have received the gift of life. He will show you how to fill your days with beauty.
To evoke Israfil, begin by chanting OM or any other word that is sacred to you. OM is said to be the sound from which the universe was created. When you chant OM you start by allowing your voice to resonate with a long ‘O’ for a few moments and then change to the syllable ‘UM’ holding the note for as long as possible. When we chant, our body resonates with the sound of our voice which changes our energy pattern. If you are feeling particularly depressed, sing the word love continuously for a few minutes and notice how much better you feel.
After chanting for a few moments, ask for Israfil’s help. You can even sing your request.
Connect with Israfil if you want to:

With love and aloha,
Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.
