Hadith on Umar: The Prophet’s dream about Umar ibn al-Khattab

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “While I was sleeping, I saw people displayed before me. They were wearing shirts, some of which covered their chests and some of which covered below that. Umar ibn al-Khattab passed by me and he was wearing a shirt dragging behind him.” They said, “What is its interpretation, O Messenger of Allah?” The Prophet said, “The religion.”

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بَيْنَمَا أَنَا نَائِمٌ رَأَيْتُ النَّاسَ يُعْرَضُونَ عَلَيَّ وَعَلَيْهِمْ قُمُصٌ مِنْهَا مَا يَبْلُغُ الثَّدْيَ وَمِنْهَا مَا يَبْلُغُ دُونَ ذَلِكَ وَمَرَّ عَلَيَّ عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ وَعَلَيْهِ قَمِيصٌ يَجُرُّهُ قَالُوا مَا أَوَّلْتَهُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ الدِّينَ
