Indeed, those who have said, “Our Lord is Allāh” and then remained on a right course – the angels will descend upon them, [saying], “Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised.
We [angels] were your allies in worldly life and [are so] in the Hereafter. And you will have therein whatever your souls desire, and you will have therein whatever you request [or wish] [Fussilat:30-31]
I am forced back to the days when I was young and read so many books about how when you go to sleep angels come and surround your bed and protect you. I remember feeling so happy that I have friends who are angels that guard me in my sleep. Although now I know that this is not true I am reassured that if I do my part in this world then I will have the companionship of those dear to Allah (swt)- the angels. They not only symbolize the reward that these people will receive but it also shows the support and safety they will feel.
