Jabir bin 'Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

The dead body of my father, who was mutilated by the enemy, was brought and placed before the Prophet (ﷺ). I got up to uncover his face but the people stopped me, and the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "The angels continue to cover him with their wings."[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن جابر بن عبد الله رضي الله عنهما قال‏:‏ جيء بأبي إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قد مثل به فوضع بين يديه، فذهبت أكشف عن وجهه فنهاني قوم فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏"‏ما زالت الملائكة تظله بأجنحتها” ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏
