Grammatically in Arabic is "the holy spirit" rather "the spirit of the holy" (like meaning the slave of Allah-the spirit who is property of Allah)? So the holiness came from God and is rather an attribute of Allah? Rather holiness is attributed to Allah?

Like saying "the spirit who is property of the one who is holy (the holy one Allah)"?

Are angels called spirits in Islam or just Gabriel? I'm white, i don't speak Arabic-so, I'm just trying to understand. I've studied the Bible in Hebrew and Greek. I'm just trying to understand all i can about the Holy Spirit in Islam. Ty. Salaam.

Respected sister,

Imaam as-Suyooti رحمة الله عليه says in "Jalaalayn", explaining the Aayah wherein "Rooh-ul-Qudus" (what people in English refer to as the "Holy Spirit") is mentioned:

وَأَيَّدْنَاهُ** قَوَّيْنَاهُ {بِرُوحِ الْقُدُس** مِنْ إضَافَة الْمَوْصُوف إلَى الصِّفَة أَيْ الرُّوح الْمُقَدَّسَة جِبْرِيل لِطَهَارَتِهِ يَسِير مَعَهُ حَيْثُ سَارَ

"And We aided him (i.e. Nabi `Eesaa عليه السلام) [strengthened him] with Rooh-ul-Qudus [attaching the qualified noun to the adjective/quality itself, meaning: Ar-Rooh Al-Muqaddasah (The Holy Spirit), and this is Jibreel, (and he is named this) on account of his purity. He travels with him (i.e. Nabi `Eesaa عليه السلام) wherever he goes (when he was on this Dunyaa).]" [Tafseer of Aayah 87 of Soorah al-Baqarah.]

So according to Imaam as-Suyooti رحمة الله عليه, the grammatical structure of this Aayah is not saying that Jibreel عليه السلام is the "Rooh" (spirit) of Al-Qudus; rather, it is saying he himself is the Rooh (spirit) that is al-Qudus (holy).

Is it clear?

بارك الله فيك

If it is what I think the question is referring to

I think it is just a title of reverence just like how Allah calls Prophet Isa his spirit.

I heard this from Sheikh Omar Suleiman I think

With regards to the title of Nabi `Eesaa عليه السلام, namely, "Roohullaah" (The Rooh of Allaah), what it means is that he is the Rooh chosen by Allaah Ta`aalaa over the Arwaah (plural of Rooh) of many from among the creation.

Yes, its not some white dove which appears, lays a deposit and then flies off... according to some Christian exegetes, this is what it is.
