Why Do You Not Weep?
Yazeed Ar-Riqaashi used to say to himself:
“Woe to you O Yazeed. Who will pray on your behalf after you die? Who will fast on your behalf after you die? Who will make Allaah be pleased with you after you die?”
Then he said:
“O people why do you not weep and wail for yourselves for the rest of your lives? When you are being sought by the grave, when the grave is home, the earth your bed, the worms your companions, and you will be awaiting the greater terror?”
[Quoted in Tadhkirat Al-Qurtubi, p.9]
