Hadith 23

Muhammad Ibn ‘Ubaidillah narrated from Ibrahim Ibn Sa’d from Salih from Ibn Shihaab from Abu Umamah Ibn Sahl Ibn Hunaif that he heard Abu Sa’id al-Khudri say that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم  said, “While I was asleep (in a dream) I saw some people who were shown to me wearing shirts some of which reached (down) to their breasts, and some of which were (even) shorter than that.’Umar ibn al-Khattab was shown to me wearing a shirt that was trailing (all the way down) to the ground.” They asked, “How do you interpret that, Messenger of Allah?” He said, “The deen” (religion).

The explanation for this narration will come in the “book of testimony.” It corresponds to that chapter from the aspect of interpreting the shirts as religion. It was mentioned that the people were of various levels according the (length of) shirt they wore, and this is proof that the people are of various levels when it comes to eemaan.
