Three Laughs and Three Tears

Three Laughs and Three Tears

It is reported form Abu Al-Darda - Allah be pleased with him - that he said, "Three make me laugh, and three make me cry.

Those that make me laugh are a person who puts his hopes in this worldly life while death pursues him, a person who is heedless [of his Lord] while [his Lord] is not heedless of him, and a person who always laughs while he does not know whether he has pleased Allah or angered Him.
What makes me cry is being separated from my beloved: Muhammad and his party (the Companions), the horrors of the time of death, and standing in front of Allah azza wa jall on the Day when the secrets will be revealed and I do not know will I then go to Paradise or Hell?"
Ibn Al-Mubarak, Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqa`iq article 250.

Anas [radi Allaahu anhu] passed by some children and greeted them [by saying Assallamu Alaikum to them].
Then he [radi Allaahu anhu] said: The Prophet [sal Allaahu alaihi wa sallam] used to do the same.
[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
