Weeping from the Fear of Allah – Book Sample
Weeping from the Fear of Allah
This is the English translation of the Arabic booklet, al-Bukaa’u min Khashyatillaah by Shaykh Hsusayn al-‘Awaayishah who is one of the students of Shaykh Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee.
In his usual style, the author has adorned his book with verses of the Qur’aan, sayings of the Prophet (), examples of the Companions and reports from the pious predecessors. We pray that the heart rendering narrations that the author has so carefully chosen will act as a means of softening our hearts, purifying our souls and permanently changing our outlook on our short lives in this world.
All praise is for Allaah. We praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allaah from the evil of our own selves and from our evil actions. Whomsoever Allaah guides, there is none to misguide him, and whomsoever Allaah leads astray none can guide him aright. I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone with no partner, and I testify that Muhammad (*) is His slave and messenger.
0 you who believe! Fear Allaah as He should be feared and die not except as Muslims (in a state of lslaam with complete submission to Allaah). ((3:102))
Indeed, the best speech is the book of Allaah, and the best guidance is that of Muhammad(). The worst affairs are the newly invented matters, for every newly invented matter is an innovation, every innovation is misguidance, and every misguidance is in the Fire.
People are distressed and feel repressed by sins. Their hardened hearts have prevented their eyes from producing tears and weeping and they have been forbidden the pleasure and sweetness of eemaan, except those whom Allaah has been merciful to, and how few they are!
I therefore saw an urgent need to address this topic, and thereby express the virtue and excellence of weeping out of fear of Allaah, the Most High, and to clarify the path towards achieving this. Furthermore, to overcome the obstacles one may face, to the best of one’s ability. So I have mentioned some of the texts and narrations about the weeping of the Prophet Muhammad () and his Companions, (may Allaah be pleased with them all).
