For centuries, guardian angels have been viewed as a particular type of angel whose sole purpose is to watch over the person they are assigned to by God. Many people believe that the dead become angels who protect us. Another way to look at guardian angels is that they are spirits of friends and family who have died.

In the Hebrew scriptures they are described as the throne bearers of God while in Christianity and Islam they are celestial attendants of God and praise him continually.
