In the Abrahamic religions, Gabriel is an archangel, first described in the Hebrew Bible. In the Hebrew Bible, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel to explain his visions (Daniel 8:15-26, 9:21-27). The archangel also appears in the Book of Enoch and other ancient Jewish writings. Alongside the archangel Michael, Gabriel is described as the guardian angel of Israel, defending its people against the angels of the other nations.
The name Gabriel translated from Hebrew means “God is my strength or God is my hero” in some languages. The Gospel of Luke relates the stories of the Annunciation, in which the angel Gabriel appears to Zechariah and the Virgin Mary, foretelling the births of John the Baptist and Jesus, respectively (Luke 1:11-38). Many Christian traditions, including Anglicanism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism, revere Gabriel as a Saint. Islam regards Gabriel as an Archangel sent by God to various prophets, including Muhammad. The first five verses of the Al-Alaq, the 96th chapter of the Quran, is believed by Muslims to have been the first verses revealed by Gabriel to Muhammad.

The Latter Day Saints hold that the angel Gabriel is the same individual as the prophet Noah in his mortal ministry. Yazidis consider Gabriel one of the Seven Mysteries, the heptad to which God entrusted the world and sometimes identified with Melek Taus. According to the ancient Gnostic manuscript, the Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit, Gabriel is a divine being and inhabitant of the Pleroma who existed prior to the Demiurge. Gabriel’s horn instead (also called Torricelli’s Trumpet) is a particular geometric figure that has infinite surface area but finite volume. The name refers to the Christian tradition that (albeit not strictly supported by the Bible itself) identifies the Archangel Gabriel as the angel who blows the horn to announce Judgment Day.
