Is Hizqil (‘alayhis salam) an angel?


Is Hizqil (‘alayhis salam) an angel? Please clarify.



I have not come across any mention of an angel named Hizqil.

‘Allamah Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) has cited Hizqil under the section of ‘Prophets that came after Musa (‘alayhis salam)’.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
