HADITH OF THE DAY:
TEARS ARE A MERCY FROM GOD
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
"If, through fear of (displeasing) God, tears - even the size a fly's head - fall from any believer's eyes. . .he will be kept away from Hell."
Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1433
When he was questioned about weeping over the death of his grand-daughter, the Prophet said:
"(Tears are) a mercy that God has placed in the hearts of His servants. And surely God bestows mercy upon those who are merciful to His servants."
