Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is this Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) told the Sahabah, “Why don’t you form your rows [saffs for Salah] just as the angels do in the presence of their Rabb?” The Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) said, ‘O Rasulullah, How do the angels form their rows in the presence of their Rabb? He said, ‘They complete the first rows and keep close together in the row.’

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir ibn Samurah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.
