I Can’t Cry…

Our Shaikh Hazrat Hakeem Akhtar Sahib once narrated an incident where a person wrote to Hazrat Thanwi (RA) the following, “Hazrat, I can not cry out of the fear of Allah. My heart is filled with grief because of this state that I am in. If only I could cry out of the fear of Allah.” Hazrat Thanwi (RA) replied, “Your feeling of not being able to cry from your eyes is actually causing you to cry from your heart. The crying of the heart is far more better than crying from the eyes.

    Subhan’Allah I’m as well a misfortunate one, who can’t cry. Maybe some day Allah Ta’ala will soften my heart.
