Abdullah رضي الله عنه narrated that he saw a dream in which two angels held him and took him to the Fire. The Fire resembled a built well and had two poles in it. Abdullah recognized the people in it. He immediately began seeking refuge in Allah from the Fire. Later, he met another angel who reassured him and told him not to be afraid.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Abdullah is a good man. I wish he prayed, Tahajjud.” After hearing this, Abdullah (Salim’s father) started to spend less time sleeping at night.
