The Sky and Earth Weep On the Death of A Momin: 14 Blessed Ahadith





..:: The Sky and Earth Weep On the Death of A Momin ::..

..:: 14 Blessed Ahadith ::..

1.    Hazrat Anas RadiAllahu Anhu reported that Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, ‘A human is blessed with two doors; one is that through which his deeds ascend and the other is that from which his sustenance descends. When a Momin (True Believer) passes away, then both (these doors) weep.’

2.    Hazrat Ibn Ab’bas RadiAllahu Anhuma reported that He  was asked, ‘Does the sky and earth ever weep over anyone?’ He  said, ‘Yes, for every human there are two doors. One is that through which his deeds ascend and the other is that from which his sustenance descends, so both of these weep upon his death, because they are closed (at his death). Similarly, the ground on which he performed Namaaz and the Zikr of Allah (also weep), and for the nation of Fir’awn (Pharaoh), there were neither any good signs on earth, and nor were there any virtuous deeds of theirs which could go towards the sky. Thus on his coming (i.e. death) neither did the sky nor the earth weep.
It is this which is the meaning of Allah’s word:
‘And the sky and earth will not weep over them’
[Part 25, Surah Ad Dukhkaan, Verse 29]

3.    Hazrat Shuraih ibn Ubaid Al Hadhrami RadiAllahu Anhu says that Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, ‘If a Muslim dies as a Musafir and there is none to cry over him, then the sky and the earth weep over him. Thereafter Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam recited this verse ‘And the sky and earth will not weep over them’ and he SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, ‘They do not cry over an unbeliever.’

4.    Hazrat Mujahid RadiAllahu Anhu reported, ‘When a Momin passes away, then every morning for forty days, the earth weeps upon him.’

5.    Ata’ Khurasani reported, ‘On whichever portion of the ground a person performed Sajdah whilst on the earth, that portion (of earth) will weep over him when he dies, and it will testify in his support on the day of Qiyaamat.’

6.    Hazrat Ali RadiAllahu Anhu reported that He SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, ‘When a Momin passes away, then the place on which he performed Namaaz weeps over him and the place through which his deeds ascended into the sky weeps over him. He SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam then recited this verse ‘They do not cry over an unbeliever.’

7.    Hazrat Ibn Ab’bas RadiAllahu Anhuma reported, ‘the earth weeps every morning for forty days on the death of a Momin.’

8.    Hazrat Abu Ubaidah RadiAllahu Anhu (the companion of Sulayman bin Abdul Malik) reported, ‘When a Momin passes away, every part of the earth calls out saying, ‘The Servant of Allah has passed away’ then the earth and the sky both weep over him, so Almighty Allah asks, ‘Why are you weeping?’ (Although He is All Knowing), so they say, ‘O our Rub! Through whichever place he passed, he used to remember You’.’

9.    Muhammad bin Ka’ab RadiAllahu Anhu reported, ‘The earth weeps upon that person who used to perform Ibaadat on the earth, and it weeps because of that person who commits sin on it.’

10.  Hazrat Muhammad bin Mateen RadiAllahu Anhu reported, ‘The sky and earth weep over the passing away of a Momin. The sky says that, ‘His good deeds used to come consistently’ and the earth says, ‘He performed good deeds on me consistently’.’

11.  Dah’hak RadiAllahu Anhu reported, ‘Those portions of the earth upon which he has left his impression, weep at his death and that portion of the sky through which his good deeds ascended also weeps.’

12.  Ata’ RadiAllahu Anhu reported, ‘The weeping of the sky refers to the redness of the horizon (the edges of the sky).’

13.  Sufyan Thauri RadiAllahu Anhu reported, ‘The redness of the sky is the sign that it is weeping over a believer.’


14.  Hazrat Hasan RadiAllahu Anhu reported, ‘When a Musafir (traveller) dies on his journey, then due to him being a Musafir, Allah does not cause him any Azaab and since there is none to weep over him, the Angels of the sky weep over him.’
