Jibrīl (or Gabriel) is recognized as the greatest of all angels (i.e. an archangel), whose name can be translated as ‘The Power of God’, or ‘God is My Strength’, thereby indicating his unwavering devotion to God. Archangel Jibrīl is typically characterized as a benevolent celestial being that acts as an intermediary between God and prophets. Indeed, Jibrīl is sent by God to convey His divine message to various prophets; he thus informed Ibrāhīm (Abraham) of the birth of Isḥāq (Isaac), to Zakariyyā (Zachariah) he delivered the news of the birth of Yahya (John), and later he announced to Marīam (Mary) the future birth of Īsā (Jesus). Also, God sent Jibrīl to reveal the holy Qur’ān to Muḥammad.
Hence, the archangel Jibrīl is widely praised as a bringer of glad tidings and great joy. This means that the archangel is typically concerned with announcement of good news, such as pregnancy, a stroke of luck and occurrence of fortunate events. Furthermore, it is believed, that during the auspicious night of Laylat al-Qadr (‘The Night of Power’) in the sacred month of Ramadan (on which Muslims believe the holy Qur’ān was revealed), Jibrīl spreads his giant wings and descends from heaven to bestow upon mankind the blessings of the Divine.
The lucky locket, then, can be used to invoke and revere the archangel Jibrīl. In order to ask the archangel to bestow upon you the blessings of the Divine (i.e., using the locket for wish fulfillment), the invocation of Jibrīl can be supplemented with recitation of the sūra al-Qadr. The locket can be worn as a talisman; for example, by hanging it on a necklace, or placing it in one’s pocket, bag or wallet. It is, of course, also possible to hang the talisman in a specific place to induce an auspicious environment, which will attract blessings of peace and harmony. Therefore, the lucky locket serves to enhance one’s luck, to improve one’s fate, and to create a general sense of joy and happiness.
