Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu ‘ala rasulullaah
Amma-ba’d
From Anas – radiyallaahu ‘anhu – who said:

The Prophet – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – said:

Which of the creation are most amazing in Eemaan?

They said: “The Angels.”

He said: The Angels – how could they not have Eemaan?!

They said: “The Prophets.”

He said: The Prophets have Revelation sent to them: how could they not have Eemaan?!

They said: “The Companions.”

He said:

The Companions are along with the Prophets, so how could they not have Eemaan?! Rather the people most amazing in Eemaan are a people who will come after you, and who will find a book of the Revelation. So they will have Eemaan in it and follow it, so they are the most amazing of the people -(or: the creation)- in Eemaan.

[Reported by al-Bazzaar (3/318-319: Kashful-Astaar), and its chain of narration was declared ‘hasan’ by Shaykh al-Albaanee in ‘as-Saheehah’ (no.3215).]
