Kiraman Katibin Angel

In Islam, the two kiraman katibin are two angels named Raqib and Atid who keep track of a person’s actions. However, whether a person is sent to Jannah (heaven) or Jahannam (hell) is not determined by whether good deeds outnumber harmful deeds but rather by God’s kindness.

The kiraman katibin’s job is to write down and record each person’s daily actions. One angel sits on the right shoulder, figuratively recording all good deeds, while the other sits on the left shoulder, figuratively recording all evil acts.

The book the angels are writing is a record of a person’s deeds over time.

Judgment Day

Muslims believe that when the end-of-the-world Judgment Day occurs, the angels who have served as Kiramin Katibin throughout history will give Allah all of the records they’ve kept on humans during their earthly lives. Then, according to the Kiramin Katibin, Allah will decide each person’s eternal fate based on their actions.

A Constant Presence

Believers claim that the constant presence of the Kiraman Katibin recording angels with humans reminds them of Allah’s continued existence and that this awareness can encourage and motivate them to choose suitable activities regularly.
