The reverence shown by Jibreel (May peace be upon him)

The night of Meraj, Jibreel (May peace be upon him) presented a great example of respect and reverence of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  When he came to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), he did not enter the house from the door, but entered the house from the roof.  The rule is:

And it is no righteousness that you enter your houses from the rear.  Surah Baqarah (2:189)

Translation of Hadith: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah bin Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him), he says: We were present before the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  Suddenly a person with a beautiful face, fragrant odor and in a clean dress came to His presence and said:
