Jarir bin Abdullah Bajali (may Allah be pleased with him) reports, I was presented to Umar (for an inspection). Jarir threw off his top shawl and walked in his lungi only (so that he could be inspected). Umar told him to take his top sheet (put it on) and address the people saying:
I did not see anyone more handsome than Jarir besides what we have heard of Yusuf As-Siddiqe alaihis salaam.
حَدَّثَنَا عمر بن إسماعيل بن مجالد بن سعيد الهمذاني ‏,‏ حدثني أبي ‏,‏ عن بيان ‏,‏ عن قيس بن أبي حازم ‏,‏ عن جرير بن عبد الله قَالَ‏:‏عرضت بين يدى عمر بن الخطاب ‏,‏ فألقى جرير رداءه ‏,‏ ومشى في إزار ‏,‏ فقال له‏:‏ خذ رداءك ‏,‏ فقال للقوم‏:‏ ما رأيت رجلاً أحسن صورة من جرير ‏,‏ إلا ما بلغنا من صورة يوسف عليه السلام‏.‏‏.‏
