“I wish to see my brothers”

فأدعو الله عز وجل أن نكون ممن قال فيهم الرسول: «وددت أنا قد رأينا إخواننا»

قالوا: ألسنا إخوانك يا رسول الله؟

قال: «أنتم أصحابي، وإخواننا الذين لم يأتوا بعد»

فقالوا: كيف تعرف من لم يأت بعد من أمتك يا رسول الله؟

فقال: «أرأيت لو أن رجلاً له خيل غر محجلة بين ظهري خيل دهم بهم ألا يعرف خيله»؟

قالوا: بلى يا رسول الله،

قال: «فإنهم يأتون غرًا محجلين من الوضوء، وأنا فرطهم على الحوض…» رواه مسلم

the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “I wish to see my brothers.” 

The Companions, may Allaah be pleased with them, said, “O Messenger of Allaah! Are not we your brothers?” 

He said: “You are my Companions, but my brothers are those who have not yet come (into the world).” 

They said, “O Messenger of Allaah! How will you recognize those of your Ummah who have not yet been born?” 

He said: “Say, if a man has white-footed horses with white foreheads among horses which are pure black, will he not recognize his own horses?” 

They said, “Certainly, O Messenger of Allaah!” 

He said: “They (my followers) will come with bright faces and white limbs because of ablution; and I will arrive at the Hawdh (Basin) ahead of them.” [Muslim]

I supplicate Allaah The Almighty to make us among those who follow the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and learn his Sunnah (tradition). I also ask Allaah The Almighty to join us with the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, in Paradise and to reward him in the best way.
