The Prophet's(Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) weeping
the whole night:
The Prophet once (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) kept weeping the
whole night through, repeating again and again the following verse:
"If Thou punish them, they art Thy slaves;
and if Thou forgive them, Thou only art the Mighty, the Wise."
It is said about Imam Abu Hanifah (Rahmatullah alaih] that he also
once wept the whole night, reciting the following verse of the Qur'an
"But avaunt ye, 0, ye guilty, this day." (XXXVI: 58)
This verse means that on the Day of Judgement, the guilty will
be asked to separate themselves from the good, and will not be allowed
to mix with them as they were doing in the worldly life. Why should
not the people with fear of Allah in their hearts weep in anxiety
regarding which class they will belong to on that Day?
