Is this a Hadith?
“When a person falls asleep before offering ‘Isha Salah, two Angels stand by him and say, ‘[Perform your] Salah.’ [When he doesn’t awaken], they give up and say, ‘The loser is asleep and he refuses to awaken.'”
This has been reported as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). However, the Muhaddithun have declared the Hadith a fabrication. The narration is not suitable to quote.
(Refer: Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 80)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
