Do you believe we each have a Guardian Angel assigned to watch over us and protect us throughout our lifetime? Is this a spirit being created by God or could it be the soul/spirit of an ancestor or deceased loved one? What do you think when your GA fails you in some way? If it is a biblical belief, please provide scriptures. Thanks!

Do you have scripture that supports this ---
Al-Baqara [2:177] It is not Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, and each and every act of obedience to AllÃ¢h, etc.) that you turn your faces towards east and (or) west (in prayers); but Al-Birr is (the quality of) the one who believes in AllÃ¢h, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, the Prophets and gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, and to Al-MasÃ¢kin (the poor), and to the wayfarer, and to those who ask, and to set slaves free, performs As-SalÃ¢t (IqÃ¢mat-as-SalÃ¢t), and gives the ZakÃ¢t, and who fulfill their covenant when they make it, and who are patient in extreme poverty and ailment (disease) and at the time of fighting (during the battles). Such are the people of the truth and they are AlÂ¬MuttaqÃ»n (pious - see V.2:2)
At-Tariq [86:4] There is no human being but has a protector over him (or her) (i.e. angels in charge of each human being guarding him, writing his good and bad deeds).
As muslims we believe in angels, and we believe that we are watched by recording angels that register our deeds. The Quran and hadith mention angels frequently. and the belief in angels is part of our creed.
We believe angels to be separate beings they are not dead ancestors
Angels can only help us with the permission of Allah, it is Allah who orders them to help us. So they do not fail us, and neither does Allah (God). We believe mischief on this earth is spread at the hands of men.

Catholics do not believe that we transform into angels after death. From the Catholic Catechism:
336 From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession. "Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life." Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united in God.
I think one of the places we get the concept of guardian angels is Matthew 18:10 "See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.

op.. i will gather the ayats or narrations from our Prophet (peace be upon him) as soon as i wake up from a nap( i can hardly keep my eyes open).. but here are two to start.. this ayats speaks of how the Angels are commanded to do things and they do not disobey. and how they are guardians and do not disobey...
"O you who believe! Save yourselves and your families from a Fire (Jahannam) whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern and severe, who flinch not (from executing) the Commands they receive from God, but do (precisely) what they are commanded." At-Tahrim 66:6
