Is there any Hadith which mentions that Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) chest once made a sound of boiling kettle due to him weeping in Salah?



Yes. Mutarrif ibn ‘Abdillah ibn Shikkhir (rahimahullah) reports from his father, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Shikkhir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) who says, “I saw Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) offering Salah and there was a boiling sound coming from his chest like the boiling of a kettle due to [excessive] weeping.”

(Sunan Nasai; Al Mujtaba, Hadith: 1214, Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 900, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 665 and 753, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 25. Also see: Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 900 and Fathul Bari, Hadith: 716)


Imams Ibn Khuzaymah and Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah) have declared the Hadith authentic.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
