Handala ibn Abi Amr (ra) fought in the Battle of Uhud, and he died only a day after his wedding night. He was another Companion who received a great blessing in death: not just the presence of angels, but angels who performed his ghusl. For this honor, he was called Ghaseel al Malaa’ika, the one who was washed by the angels.
