86.4. There is not a soul but over it is a guardian.

إِن كُلُّ نَفْسٍ لَّمَّا عَلَيْهَا حَافِظٌ

4. There is not a soul but over it is a guardian.1


1. There are angels accompanying each person (13: 11), two of which record his or her deeds by God's command (50: 17; 82: 10–12). God is the Unique Guardian over all those angels and the One Who knows whatever a person thinks, conceives of, and does (50: 16). The verse carries all these meanings.
