This is just a guess but my speculation is that Baha'u'llah was familiar with the following Hadith... The description given below would match the young Abdul-Baha... but i would also suspect the origin of the statement given as by Baha'u'llah that Abdul-Baha looked like Christ may not be authentic...

Hadith according to Muslim, Book 001, Number 0324:
It is narrated on the authority of 'Abdulldh b. Umar that one day the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) mentioned in the presence of people ...: I was shown in a dream in the night that near the Ka'bah there was a man fair-complexioned, fine amongst the white-complexioned men that you ever saw, his locks of hair were falling on his shoulders. He was a man whose hair were neither too curly nor too straight, and water trickled down from his head. He was placing his bands on the shoulders of two persons and amidst them was making a circuit around the Ka'bah. I said: Who is he? They replied: Al-Masih son of Mary.
