Benefit: Who Is Jibrāʾīl?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Q: Who is Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel)?

Shaykh Fawzān: Do you not know who Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel) is? Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel) is the best of the angels, the trustworthy one who was entrusted by Allāh with the revelation.

نَزَلَ بِهِ الرُّوحُ الْأَمِينُ
Which the trustworthy Ruḥ [Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel)] has brought down
[Sūrah al-Shuʿarāʾ, 26:193]

This means that the Qurʾān was sent down by the trustworthy spirit, who is Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel) peace be upon him.

عَلَىٰ قَلْبِكَ
Upon your heart (O Muḥammad)
[Sūrah al-Shuʿarāʾ, 26:194]

Meaning upon the heart of the Messenger—peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him—so he is the trustworthy spirit—peace be upon him—and the chief of angels.
