Umar's religion

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

Allah's Apostle said, "While I was sleeping I saw (in a dream) some people wearing shirts of which some were reaching up to the breasts only while others were even shorter than that. Umar bin Al-Khattab was shown wearing a shirt that he was dragging." The people asked, "How did you interpret it? (What is its interpretation) O Allah's Apostle?" He (the Prophet ) replied, "It is the Religion."

Kindly explain the interpretation.I couldn't understand. I request you to add more to it. Thanks.

From my understanding, his garment was so long, that it dragged behind him. The length of the garment is proportional to his knowledge of deen.

Makes sense?
