A query regarding ‘Umar’s (radiyallahu ‘anhu) questioning in the grave

Question

Is this narration reliable?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was once explaining what will happen in the grave when the Angels come to question a person. Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) asked Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) if he will be stable during questioning. When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied in the affirmative, he said, ‘Then I will be able to manage the questioning and answer them O Rasulullah’.

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then took an oath and said, ‘Jibril (‘alayhis salam) has informed me that when the Angels come to question you in the grave you will say ‘Allah is my Rabb, Who is your Rabb, Muhammad is my Nabi, who is your Nabi and Islam is my religion what is your religion’?

The Angels will then say in astonishment, ‘We don’t know if we were sent to question you or were you sent to question us’?
