Laugh Less and Weep Much

Abu Dharr (r.a.) narrated that Allah's messenger (s.a.w.) said:

''Surely I see what you do not see and hear that which you do not hear. The heaven creaks and it has the right to creak. There is not space of four fingers on it but one or the other angel is prostrating there.

 If you were to know what I know then you will laugh less and weep much, and will not go to your wives on their beds, but will lose yourself in the wilderness and beseech Allah weeping much.''

Abu Dharr (r.a.) said ''By Allah how I wish I were a tree that would be chopped.''

(Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Ahmad, Haakim, Targhib)


Anas (r.a.) narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said:

''I have been permitted to disclose about one of the bearers of the Throne, that the feet of this angel are on the lowest earth while the Throne stands on the top of his head and the distance between the lobe of his ear and his shoulder is what would take a bird seven hundred years to fly (from end to end). And the angel says (Glory be to You as You are Glorious.)   (Tiyalsi, Abu Nu'aym)
