17 – Angels and the Devil

The word “angel” associates in many people the “devil” itself. All derivatives of these two interrelated words are used in the Quran 88 times each. It is interesting to note that the most frequent form of these two words “eþ-þeytan” and “el-melaike” are used, 68 times each in the Quran. Two examples for these words:

6- Devil is certainly your enemy
35. Originator, 6

12- Thus, your Lord inspired the Angels.
8. Spoils of War, 12

The word Number of occurrence
Angels 88
Devil 88
