Crying/weeping out of the fear of Allah

Question

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.”

 

Answer

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.
