Two Angels Guard Every Person

I found this interesting ayah from the Quran:

“For him (each person), there are angels in succession before and behind him. They guard him by the command of God.” (13:11)

I knew we had two angels with us that recorded our actions and that we had a jinn with us as well but I didn’t know we had two angels guarding us. Thank you God for the personal bodyguards. Devil be afraid! Angels got my back!

Seriously I need to read the Quran more. I’m pretty dumb. May God increase our time with Quran. Ameen.

  1. ameen!
    seriously, sometimes i/we just forget our blessings and don’t do enough… May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala guide us all. ameen!

  2. Yes and there are also jinns with us! So inshallah Allah will give us jinns that are good and a good influence to us

  3. There are something like 20 angels for each person. It’s in an article by Gibril Haddad, he quotes the source as Imam al-Suyuti’s al-Haba’ik fi Akhbar al-Mala’ik.

  4. May God increase our time with Quran. Ameen Quran contain information which we should know for our personal and regular life, i contain solution of our whole problems, we give much concentration in our Muslim community center on Quran which necessary for a good Muslim

  5. According to one deviant salafi scholar there are 4 angels, left, right, behind and forward

  6. AA MR! —

    I just happened to drop by your site, been a while, and I like your entry. Angels must be in the outfield, cuz i was thinking the same thing too not long ago. Alhamdullilah. you know what’s real cool …. it’s when Allah swt puts us through certain experiences in life that make us sense the protection of those angels…. it’s one thing to know (through the Qur’an, for example) that they’re there, and it’s another feeling to sense their protection. Imagine what that does to our iman….

    May Allah swt keep our angels close, and our hearts always aware of them. ameen. Great blog bro, I’ll have to come by here more often.

    fee aman illah,

  7. Salam,

    I stumbled on of Ibn Kathir (13.11)
    لَهُ مُعَقِّبَـتٌ مِّن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ
    Allah states that there are angels who take turns guarding each servant, some by night and some by day. These angels protect each person from harm and accidents. There are also angels who take turns recording the good and evil deeds, some angels do this by day and some by night. There are two angels, one to the right and one to the left of each person, recording the deeds. The angel to the right records the good deeds, while the angel to the left records the evil deeds. There are also two angels that guard and protect each person, one from the back and one from in front. Therefore, there are four angels that surround each person by day and they are replaced by four others at night, two scribes and two guards. An authentic Hadith states,(Angels take turns around you, some at night and some by day, and all of them assemble together at the time of the Fajr and `Asr prayers. Then those who have stayed with you throughout the night, ascend to Allah Who asks them, and He knows the answer better than they about you, “How have you left My servants” They reply, “As we have found them praying, we have left them praying.”) Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah said that the Messenger of Allah said,(Verily, every one among you has his companion from the Jinn and his companion from the angels.”) They said, “And you too, O Allah’s Messenger” He said,And I too, except that Allah has helped me against him, so he only orders me to do good.) Muslim collected this Hadith. Ibn Abi Hatim narrated that Ibrahim said, “Allah revealed to a Prophet from among the Children of Israel, `Say to your nation: every people of a village or a house who used to obey Allah but changed their behavior to disobeying Him, then He will take away from them what they like and exchange it for what they dislike.” Ibrahim next said that this statement has proof in Allah’s Book,
    إِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُواْ مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ
    (Verily, Allah will not change the (good) condition of a people as long as they do not change their state (of goodness) themselves.)

    More or less…
    4×4 (2 scribes and 2 guards, 4 at fajr to asar and 4 after asar to fajr) Alhamdulillah for these angels!!!

    Wa Salam

    This is what Allah means when he says that he protects us.
