I have found this hadeeth:

Anas bin Malik (RA) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: " I wish that I could meet my brothers." The Sahaabah (RAA) asked: "Aren't we your brothers?" He replied: "You are my Companions, but my brothers are those who will believe in me without having seen me

It is supposed to be in Saheeh Muslim(?). I have the kutubus-sitta (arabic) but cannot seem to trace this.

Would it be possible to quote the exact reference to this hadith with number ?


The hadith occurs in Sahih Muslim (249) in the Book of Taharah, Chapter on Making the Limbs Glow by Wudu:

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَتَى الْمَقْبُرَةَ فَقَالَ ‏"‏ السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ دَارَ قَوْمٍ مُؤْمِنِينَ وَإِنَّا إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ بِكُمْ لاَحِقُونَ وَدِدْتُ أَنَّا قَدْ رَأَيْنَا إِخْوَانَنَا ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا أَوَلَسْنَا إِخْوَانَكَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ ‏"‏ أَنْتُمْ أَصْحَابِي وَإِخْوَانُنَا الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَأْتُوا بَعْدُ ‏"‏ ‏ ...

It also occurs in Sunan Ibn Majah and Sunan an-Nasa'i.
