The Rank of Mu’awiyah bin Mu’awiyah al-Muzani

On the authority of Abu Umamah al-Bahili (ra) who said: “Jibril (alaihis salam) came to the Prophet while he was at Tabuk and said: ‘O Muhammad! Witness the funeral of Mu’awiyah bin Mu’awiyah al-Muzani.’ So the Messenger of Allah went out and Jibril (alaihis salam) descended in the midst of 70 000 angels. He placed his right wing on the mountains and they became lowered; and he placed his left wing on the earth and it diminished, until he saw Makkah and Madinah. So the Messenger of Allah , Jibril and the other angels prayed over him. When he finished he said: ‘O Jibril! For what reason has Mu’awiyah attained this rank?’ He replied: ‘Because of his recital of “Say: ‘He is Allah, the One'” standing, riding and walking.'”[1]

(From Kitab al-Adhkar of Imam al-Nawawi)
