1. Verily with every person there are two angels who protect him, and when his time is up they leave him alone with his impending death, and verily the [decreed] lifetime [of a person] is a strong protective shield.

1ـ إنَّ مَعَ كُلِّ إنْسان مَلَكَيْنِ يَحْفَظانِهِ، فَإذا جاءَ أجَلُهُ خَلَّيا بَيْنَهُ وبَيْنَهُ، وَإنَّ الأجَلَ لَجُنَّةٌ حَصينَةٌ.

2. He (‘a) said about angels: They are captives of faith; neither divergence nor deviation breaks them from its hold.

2ـ وقالَ ـ عَلَيهِ السّلام ـ في ذِكْرِ المَلائِكَةِ: هُمْ أُسَراءُ إيمان، لَمْ يَفُكَّهُمْ مِنْهُ (مِنْ ريقَتِهِ) زَيْغٌ ولاعُدُولٌ.
