Three things make me laugh and three things make me cry.

I laugh

  • at the one who is hopeful of the world yet death seeks him;
  • the one who is neglectful (of his Lord) while he is not neglected (by Him);
  • the one who laughs at the top of his voice, while he does not know whether he is pleasing his Lord or displeasing Him.

Three things make me cry:

  • parting from our beloved Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and his Companions;
  • the terror of the onset of the pangs of death and
  • the standing in front of the Lord of the Worlds while not knowing whether I will be turned towards the Fire or Paradise.
