The companions of the Prophet sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam used to weep out of fear of Allah

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) delivered a Khutbah to us the like of which I had never heard from him before. In the course of the Khutbah, he said: "If you knew what I know, you would laugh little and weep much". Thereupon those present covered their faces and began to sob. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary:  This Hadith has been mentioned in this chapter for the reason that it furnishes positive proof of the fact that the Companions of the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) used to weep out of fear of Allah when they heard sermons and preaching's. It induces us to follow them.
Ref.: Imam Al-Nawawi's Riyad-us-Saliheen # 447.

Two things help success in life.
The way you manage when you have nothing and 
the way you behave when you have everything.
