Allow Those Tears To Roll From The Great Reply Of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) | Mufti Menk

Allah Almighty knows that which is happening, that which happened, that which will happen, that’s the knowledge of Allah. But beyond that, that which will not happen, If it were to happen, how it would have happened is the knowledge of Allah.

Without the help of Allah, there’s never going to be any form of comforts. Allah alone will comfort you for your loss.

The Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) shed tears when Ibrahim, his son, passed away. So when the Sahaba / Companions (ra) and whom saw the tears, they questioned, what is this, subhanallah, as though you are not supposed to cry?

So it was quickly clarified these tears are not a sign of questioning Allah. These tears are not a sign of disagreeing with Allah. They are not a sign of being upset at Allah’s decrees (Qada’) and destiny (Qadr) but rather, these tears are a sign of the mercy that Allah puts in the hearts of those who are merciful to a degree.

Cry when you have to, cry when you need to, to cry when it’s about to come, when you hold back sometimes it’s not as good a feel as when you allow those tears to roll, allow those tears to roll. Allah created tear glands, and Allah gave them a purpose. And Allah allows them to be release when certain emotions happen to be up and down, it’s a human mechanism of coping.
