Is the keeper of the Hell-Fire blind ?

Question: Is the keeper of the Hell-Fire blind? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

It has been narrated that the eyes of the keepers of Hell will be like lightning that dazzles the eyes, their canine teeth will be like the spurs of roosters, the flames of fire will emit from their mouths, the distance between each of their shoulders will be the journey of a year, mercy will be removed from them (i.e. they will be merciless), and one of them will lift 70,000 of the denizens of the Hell-Fire and throw them wherever he wants in the Hell-Fire. Tafsir Al-Baghawi: v. 8, p. 270 (Dar Tayyiba Li Al-Nashr wa At-Tawzee) Regarding whether the keepers of Hell are blind or not, we have not come across such a narration. Only Allah knows best
