Crying for the Sake of Allah

It’s narrated that some of the Sahaabah would have marks under their eyes due to their constant crying, due to the fear of Allah.

When was the last time we cried for the sake of Allah?

Have we become so busied with the dunya; work, children, spouse, or a hobby that our hearts have become hard that we don’t cry for the sake of Allah?

Ibn al Qayyim (rh) said that all of us know deep down where we would go if we were on the Siraat right now.

Shedding Tears for the Sake of Allah

Ibn al Jawzi (rh) mentions about those that cry in front of others, even though they are able to stop themselves, are showing off!

When the people of the past felt they were about to cry, they would get up and leave.
