Is this narration authentic?
Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhu) reported that Allah’s Messenger said:
“Purify these bodies and Allah will purify you, for there is no slave who goes to sleep in a state of purity but an Angel spends the night with him, and every time he turns over, [the Angel] says, ‘O Allah! Forgive Your slave, for he went to bed in a state of purity.”
