Hadith on Faith: Blessed are those with faith, who never saw him

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported: A man came to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said, “O Messenger of Allah, blessed is one who saw you and had faith in you.” The Prophet said, “Blessed are those who saw me and had faith in me. Blessed again and again are those who had faith in me and never saw me.”
