My Brothers Are Those Who Will Believe In Me, Without Having Seen Me

Anas ibn Malik narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “I wish that I could meet my brothers.” 
The Companions of the Prophet (Allah be well pleased with them) asked, “Are we not your brothers?”
He replied: “You are my Companions, but my brothers are those who will believe in me, without having seen me.” 

... [Ahmad, Musnad]
