It is narrated on the authority of Jabir that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: There appeared before me the apostles, and Moses was among men as if he was one of the people of Shanu'a, and I saw Jesus son of Mary ﷺ and I saw nearest in resemblance with him was 'Urwa b. Mas'ud, and I saw Ibrahim (blessings of Allah be upon him) and I see your companions much in resemblance with him, i. e. his personality, and I saw Gabriel ﷺ and I saw Dihya nearest in resemblance to him;
but in the narration of Ibn Rumh it is Dihya b. Khalifa.
