Malec (king). So the Mohammedans call the principal angel in care of hell. In the Koran it is said (speaking of the infidels), "And they shall call aloud, saying, O Malec, intercede for us, that the Lord would end us by annihilation. And he shall answer, Verily, ye shall remain here forever. We brought you the truth heretofore, and ye abhorred the truth." Some of the Mohammedan doctors say this answer will be given a thousand years after the final dissolution of this world. — Broughton, Biblioth. Hist. Sac. vol. 2, s.v.; Sale, Koran, p. 401.
