`Abdullaah ibn Mas`ood (a Companion) said

“I stood in the middle of the night to pray alone, when I was with the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, during the Battle of Tabook, and I saw a light produced from a fire and it was coming from the direction of the army. I followed the light to see what it was, and found that it was the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, Abu Bakr, and `Umar. I found that `Abdullaah Thu Al-Bijaadain Al-Muzani had died, and they had dug a hole for his grave, and the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was in the grave, while Abu Bakr and `Umar were passing his body to the grave, and the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was saying: ‘Bring your brother closer to me.’ So they brought him closer to the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. When he was put on his side, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘O Allah, I went to bed happy with him and pleased with him, so be pleased with him.’So I said: ‘I wished that I was the one in the grave.’”

Ibn Hishaam (a scholar) said: “He was called the man of two cloaks because he was trying to come to Islam but his people prevented him and were making things hard for him, and left him with only a coarse cloak, and nothing else. So he ran from them to the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and when he came close, he took the cloak and ripped it in two, wearing one half as a bottom garment, and the other as a wrap around his upper body, then he went tothe Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and because of that, he was called the man of two cloaks.”
