‘A deep dream of peace’ refers to a meditative, restful state that Abou Ben Adhem was in. Here ‘dream’ is synonymous to sleep. Abou wakes up from his peaceful and deep sleep.

He could have peace because he loved his fellow men and so was able to live a happy and stress-free life. He was also a simple and innocent man with less demand.
