The Hadeeth of Jibreel is…

The Hadeeth of Jibreel is unique, in that it is as if the Sanad of this narration goes back to the Prophet (ﷺ) and to Jibril (Alayhi Salaam) as well, so it is stronger than any other chain in this regard. Also, we should consider the spiritual maturity of the Companions that they were able to bear seeing an angel, albeit in a human form. Remember the story of the Prophet (ﷺ) when the first revelation came to him and the tremendous experience in that, yet fast-forward years later, and in the Madinan period, some of the Companions themselves can see the Angel of Revelation (Alayhi Salaam).
