Weeping out of fear from Allah

552246333

“Weeping out of fear from Allah is the proof of our faith and sensing its sweetness. Therefore, Mighty Allah rejected those who laughed while listening to the Quraan and did not cry. So He says: “Then at this statement do you wonder? (59). And you laugh and do not weep” [An-Najm: 59-60]

Ibn Katheer said in his interpretation: Then the Mighty Allah denies the way the disbelievers listen to the Quraan, their negligence and messing around and says: {Then at this statement do you wonder} He wonders how could this be true, {And you laugh} out of mocking and irony {and do not weep} as the believers do, and he describes them “And they fall upon their faces weeping, and it [i.e., the Quran increases them in humble submission” [Al Israa 17:109].

Your imaan is not stagnant, rather it increases and decreases with time, dependant on the condition of your heart and your actions. With continual beneficial reminders of Allah and His greatness, and by reading the Quran and implementing it in our daily lives, our faith can be increased. On the other hand, faith is decreased by the lack of reminders of Allah, abandoning the Quran and Sunnah, and following actions that do not please Allah.

Ibn Abbas narrated: “Once the Prophet (ﷺ) embraced me and said, ‘O Allah! Bestow on him the knowledge of the Book.’” (Bukhari, 75)

It is through knowing our Lord, Allah the Most High, that our heart finds peace and is filled with happiness in its devotion to Allah. By submitting ourselves to Allah, the Lord of all that exists, we lift the burdens of life off our own shoulders and then place our trust in Allah. With this submission and trust in Allah comes true contentment, deep tranquility, and peacefulness within ourselves, for worshipping Allah is the purpose He created us.

When our heart is lacking understanding of it’s Creator, our submission to Him is weakened, therefore true happiness cannot be obtained. If we desire happiness, then we should seek out knowledge of Allah, our Creator, we will then find that worries, sadness, and misery will leave us. Furthermore gaining this knowledge of Allah, can increase our faith in Him too.

رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

“Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower.” (Quran, 3:8)
