مَن كَانَ عَدُوّاً للَّهِ وَمَلاۤئِكَتِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَجِبْرِيلَ وَمِيكَٰلَ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَدُوٌّ لِّلْكَافِرِينَ
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Whoever is an enemy to God and His angels and His messengers, and Gabriel (read Jibrīl or Jabrīl, Jibra’il or Jabra’il, Jibra’īl or Jabra’īl), and Michael (Mīkāl, also read Mīkā’īl, or Mīkā’il; a supplement to malā’ikatihi, ‘His angels’, an example of the specific being supplemented to the collective) — then surely God is an enemy to the disbelievers’ (He says ‘to the disbelievers’ instead of ‘to them’ in order to point out their status).
