Crying/weeping out of the fear of Allah


What is the reference of this narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “A man who weeps for fear of Allah will not enter Jahannam until milk goes back into the udder.”



Imam Tirmidhi and Imam Nasai (rahimahumallah) have recorded this as part of a longer Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1633 and 2311, Sunan Nasai; Al Mujtaba, Hadith: 3107)


Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
