So I spoke to him one day saying: ‘You cry too much.’

Hamza al’amaa said: I would visit Hassan al-Basari at his house and find him
crying.

 
Sometimes I would come to him while he was in pray and hear him weeping.

 

So I spoke to him one day saying: ‘You cry too much.’ He replied: ‘O my beloved son, what should the believer do if not cry? My dear child crying invites His mercy, so if you can spend the rest of your life crying, then do so.

 
For perhaps Allah will have mercy upon you because of it.

How true are these words of Ibn al-Qayyim:
Ibn Al-Qayyim said :

“A man is the one who fears the death of his heart, not his body.”
[“Madarij Al-Salikeen”, 3/248].
