фаришта: angel

They looked at her and saw that her face was like the face of an angel.

Animate (people and animal) nouns ending in a consonant usually take the suffix –он. If the animate noun ends with “а” then the suffix is –гон. So the plural of фаришта is фариштагон. Inanimate (non-living) nouns usually form the plural by taking the suffix –ҳо. However, colloquially and informally –ҳо is often used instead of –он for animate nouns. So фариштаҳо is also an acceptable plural form.
