ما جفت الدموع إلا لقساوة القلوب وما قست القلوب إلا لكثرة الذنوب وما كثرت الذنوب إلا من كثرة العيوب



Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of Yahya ibn Mu’adh Ar Razi (rahimahullah). [Approximate demise: 258 AH]

(Shu’abul Iman: 6828)



Tears dry up due to hardness of the heart, the heart becomes hard due to abundance of sins and abundance of sins are due to many faults/defects.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
