The crying of the Prophet (may peace be upon him)
He would cry out of fear for Allah s.w.t,
He would cry when a loved one had died,
He would cry because out of fear for his ummah, for his nation (that’s you and Qistina btw),
He would cry because of the Hellfire and its terrible punishments!
How often do we cry in our prayers?
How often do we cry when we recite the Quran?
When was the last time you cried out of the fear of Allah?
And we have sins like the mountain tops :(
Sins which is more vast than the oceans
Yet we rarely cry!
(Crying increases humility and humbleness)
When was the last time that you cried?
Crying, out of the fear of Allah, because you have so many sins,
Crying, out of hope for the mercy of Allah,
This is itself ibadah, an act of worship,
And a person is rewarded for it :)
On the day of judgement, the day where the sun will come so close to them, the heat is extreme that some will drown in his own sweat. It’s the day where there is no shade except the shade of Allah.
And only 7 types of people will receive Allah’s shades..one of them is:
A man who remembers Allah in seclusion, alone when no one can see him, he remembers his sins, he fears Allah, and then he began to shed tears.
By Allah, a man would not be touched by the Fire, if he cries out of the fear of Allah! MashAllah!
The Prophet, our beloved, sallalahu alahi wassalam..
He would cry in his prayers,
He would cry reciting the Quran,
He would cry when the Quran is recited to him.
He would often cry when he remembered Paradise and the Fire.
He would cry in his du’a.
He would cry, asking for forgiveness.
He would cry when giving da’wah to the people, out of the love for his ummah.
Our hearts has become so hard, that even if someone was to tell us about all of the torments and punishments of the Fire, we consider it something, which is normal, we just pass by it. We continue like nothing has changed, it didn’t have any impact in our hearts. (audhubillah)
With all of our sins, all the wrongs that we did, all the sins we committed by day and by night, and we cant shed a single tear out of the fear of Allah?
We can’t shed even a single tear in our prayers, when reciting the Quran?
The Prophet s.a.w used to cry, until the ground around him become wet! SubhanAllah!
"Oh Allah, my ummah, my ummah, did You not promise me that You would not punish them so long as I’m amongst them? Did You not promise me that You would not punish my ummah so long as they seek forgiveness from You?"
Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam
The Prophet s.a.w would not just cry all the time to the extent that would make him depressed, and neither he would just laugh and smile that he would never be able to shed tears and would never have the fear of Allah.
He would balance between the two.
To know when to cry, when to smile, when to laugh..
Khutba by Shaykh Ahsan Hanif - When the Prophet s.a.w cried
(Ya know if I’m given the robot hand I’ll type out every single thing the Shaykh said. These are just some important and interesting points. And I really am not bothered to change any single sentences as to make this post seemed somewhat 'well written')
Like Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan said it ‘so the words of Allah is not enough to shake you anymore?’ regarding the Quran.
So yeah I’m bakkkk!
