According to the Muslim preachers if Gabriel is the Angel, how is he himself the Ruh? He himself must obey the human being. The highest power of the Angel is he who carries the Ruh to mankind from Allah, (the messenger). (16: 2). 36 The Influence of Rome What is Ruh? “The Ruh is command of Allah’s knowledge it is only a little that is communicated to mankind” (17: 85) this means Allah dignify a very little from His Ruh (Knowledge) to mankind. On the other word, knowledge is carried by the intellect power, so the Holy Koran gives the first meaning for Ruh is Intellect or wisdom power that is dignified to mankind when he/she was fashioned completely, not in the step of embryo.
