Stories of the Propehts

Question ID: 24823

Assalamualikum Mufti Saab
i have a couple of questions of things i have heard in bayans. Is this story true: Musa(AS) asks Allah(SWT) what will Allah(SWT) do if there no more believers left on this world.Allah(SWT) says he has a creature so large that this creature can swallow the entire 7 skies and 7 earths in one bite. Can you give me reference and actual text?
Is the narration true that Jibraeel(AS) asks Allah(SWT) to travel in Jannat and see the size. After many years of traveling he reports back to Allah(SWT) and says he covered about 50%. Allah(SWT) tells him he hasn’t covered even one corner of Abu Bakr’s jannat.
Are these hadith sahih?
when a person enters jannah he will be happy to enter jannah but when abu bakr enters jannah jannah will be pleased to see him and the gates will be calling out his name.
Shaytaan out of fear for umar crosses the road and runs away
can you give references and text?
jazakallah Mufti Saab
