Ramadan : What are your thoughts on this?

Assalaamu alaykum brothers n sisters :)

Allaah (swt) says :

“It is the same (to Him) whether any of you conceals his speech or declares it openly, whether he be hid by night or goes forth freely by day.

For him (each person), there are angels in succession, before and behind him. They guard him by the Command of Allaah”

[al-Ra’d 13:10-11]

The commentator on the Qur’aan who had the best understanding of it, Ibn ‘Abbaas, explained that the mu’aqqibaat [translated here as “angels in succession”] refers to the angels whom Allaah has appointed to guard man from in front and from behind. When the decree of Allaah comes – when He decrees that some accident or calamity etc. should befall him – the angels withdraw from him.

Mujaahid said: There is no person who does not have an angel appointed to protect him when he is asleep and when he is awake, from the jinn, men and wild beasts. There is nothing that comes to him but the angels tell it to clear off, except for that which Allaah grants permission for it to befall him.

SubhanAllah !!

Allah(swt) protects us from calamities through His messengers (angels), and yet we remain ungrateful by not obeying Him in certain aspects or forget to remember Him. Every child of Adam is surrounded by angels, who gaurd him, protect him, write down his good and bad deeds, right from the womb to the graves. And yet many times, we think that we're alone (especially in distress and misery).. Forgetting Allah(swt) our sustainer !!

    That's what I mean! My enemies even dare to lie just to gain support as if I am wrong. But still I don't care until if there is a point where i need to speak up.

    They claimed that they are following Prophet's way, but that's only prayers! BUt what's the use of 5 times prayers if that cannot protect them from backbiting, swear by His name falsely, showing people their good deeds for praises, slandering, gamble...etc..omg! May God protects me from their evil deeds/intention and gang who maybe are going to influence others to boycott me and my friends! I just DON'T CARE! And when people here give good remarks or being friendly with me, they are not satisfied and tried to obstruct it with stupid repeated rhetorical Qs! While whatever they do or spread rumours about me to users here i just dont care! Is that what Prophet's way? Of course, no one is perfect, but those vices that i've spoken are the obvious ones! And yet, they claim they are better than my colony!

    p.s. Have I ever ask anyone to back me up?
