How many angels we have around us

Four angels accompany each person.

Two guardian angels, (one on the right and one on the left) write down the deeds of the person, the one on the right writing down the good deeds and the one on the left writing down the evil ones.

See soorah Qaaf (50) aayah 18.

 

There are two other angels, one in front of him and one behind each person, who protect him from attacks against him for as long as Allaah has written that he should remain (protected).

See Soorah ar Ra’d (13) aayah 11.

Lend your ear to the Qur’aan:

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

Ibn Mas`ood رضي الله عنه and other scholars of the Salaf said: “When you hear Allaah تعالى saying in the Qur’aan:

( يَـأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ )


{O you who believe!}, then listen with full attention, for it is either some goodness that Allaah تعالى is enjoining, or an evil that He is forbidding.”

—  [Tafseer Ibn Katheer [Surah al-Baqarah (2): 23]]

A German brother who is a revert to Islam gives Da'wah in Germany streets inviting the non-Muslims to Islam, Masha'Allaah!

This duty of conveying the message of Islam is incumbent upon every member of the Muslim Ummah. As Allaah سبحانه و تعالى says in the Qur'aan:

“Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good; enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, they are the ones to attain success.” [Qur'aan, Surah Ali’ Imran [3:104]]

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱسۡتَعِينُواْ بِٱلصَّبۡرِ وَٱلصَّلَوٰةِ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ مَعَ ٱلصَّـٰبِرِينَ
O you who believe! Seek help in patience and As-Salât (the prayer). Truly! Allâh is with As-Sâbirun (the patient.)
—  Al Qur'aan al Kareem, Suratul Baqarah; verse 153. 

One of Shaytaan’s greatest tricks is convincing man that because he has sinned (repeatedly), he can not repent and if he repents, it will not be accepted of Him, when Allaah ta'aala has stated:

  • 2:37 “Indeed, it is He who is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
  • 2:160 “Except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident [what they concealed]. Those - I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
  • 2:222 “...Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.
  • 3:89 “Except for those who repent after that and correct themselves. For indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
  • 4:17 “The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after. It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.”
  • 4:26 “Allah wants to make clear to you [the lawful from the unlawful] and guide you to the [good] practices of those before you and to accept your repentance. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
  • 4:146 “Except for those who repent, correct themselves, hold fast to Allah , and are sincere in their religion for Allah , for those will be with the believers. And Allah is going to give the believers a great reward.
  • more. 

So if you find yourself a sinner, repent and become of those who make a habit of repenting. Don’t lose Faith, keep repenting; even if you keep sinning.
