In Episode #4, the respected Imam begins our understanding the role of the angels with our night sleep.

The prophet s.a.w. said when a person makes wudu’ Allah sends an angel that spends the entire night at your head supplicating to Allah to forgive His servant as he went to sleep in the state of purification.

And the prophet s.a.w. said that the recitation of the Ayatul Kursi before sleep would have Allah send an angel that would stand guard and protect from the shayateen.

So for how long does the angel supplicate to Allah and for how long does the other angel protect you from the shayateen? Few hours? The whole night?

To learn the answers make the time to listen to the very end of this episode by Imam Omar Suleiman.


The proof of a Muslim’s sincerity is, that he pays no heed to that, which is not his business.

Abu Hureira: Tirmidhi
