I can not explain the feelings that come over me when i read or hear this hadeeth...
From Masnad Ahmed (the meaning of):
During the last days of the Prophet's life, Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) became very ill and was in bed almost all the time.
During those days while laying in bed, the prophet started crying (PBUH) and said: "I wish i could see my brothers."
His followers who were with him near his bed said:"Aren't we your brothers O Prophet?"
The Prophet answered:" You are my friends and followers. My brothers are the ones who believe in me without even seeing me...".
Yaaaah ya Rasol Allah... what a word... "my bothers"... how lovely :)
