In Islamic tradition, a Hafaza is a type of angel.[1] It is similar to the Christian concept of a guardian angel.[2]

Each person is assigned four Hafaza angels, two of which keep watch during the day and two during the night.[2] They help the soul fight attacks from demons and evil jinn. The Kiraman Katibin angels keep track of each and every good and bad deed that their person performs in their books. On the Day of Judgment, they will be used to determine if the person is worthy of admission into Jannah (paradise).[2]
