For each one there are successive angels before and behind, protecting them by Allah’s command. Indeed, Allah would never change a people’s state ˹of favour˺ until they change their own state ˹of faith˺. And if it is Allah’s Will to torment a people, it can never be averted, nor can they find a protector other than Him.
— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
For him [i.e., each one] are successive [angels]1 before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah.2 Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill,3 there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron.
