The Islamic Account of "Gabriel" (Jibreel)

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: me thinks

The true archangel Gabriel would not be weak nor fearful of a dog - nor of any other animal. Thus, one needs to wonder what type of spirit-being appeared to Muhammad in the dark cave revealing the Qur'an to Muhammad and yet be afraid of a puppy dog inside his house. The Islamic "Jibreel" is NOT the archangel, Gabriel, of the Bible.
