Imam al-Bukhari Dreams

Salam.  Imam al-Dhahabi mentions in his ‘al-Siyar’ in his entry for Imam al-Bukhari (12/391/471):

On the authority of al-Farbari:  I saw the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in a dream, he said to me:  Where are you going?
I said: I am going to Muhammad bin Ismaeel al-Bukhari
He replied:  Convey my greeting to him

Imam al-Dhahabi also mentions:

Muhammad bin Muhammad bin Makki al-Jurjani said:  I heard Abd al-Wahid bin Adam al-Tawawisi say:  I saw the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in a dream, he was with a group of his companions, and he was standing in a place.  I greeted him and he replied to the greeting.  I said:  Why is it that you are standing here O Messenger of Allah?
He said:  I am waiting for Muhammad bin Ismaeel al-Bukhari.
After some days (news of) his death reached me, I found that he had passed away during the hour in which I had seen the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace).
