Download PDF: [S] A Tree Created from the Tears
In narrations it is mentioned that when a person displays fear for Allah Almighty and also weeps, Allah Almighty creates a tree from these tears. This is known as a tree of “Sa’aadat”. When the breeze of sadness and grief passes through this tree, the sound of “Waa Muhammad” appears from it. This is then heard in the blessed grave of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – and the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – begins to weep for his Ummah when he hears this sound.
From these blessed tears, Allah Almighty creates a tree which is called “Shafaa’at”. When the breeze of Nubuwah and Risaalat passes through this tree the sound of “Waa Ummataahu” appears which is then spread all over the heavens and which all the Angels are able to listen to. They then fall into Sajdah and continue to weep and weep for the Ummah of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. Allah Almighty listens to their weeping and inquires from them about the reason for their weeping. The Angels reply that Allah Almighty is aware of everything and that their weeping is for the sake of the Ummah of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. Allah Almighty then Declares, “O Angels! Bear witness that I have pardoned every person in the Ummah of Muhammad who had wept in fear for Me.” (Durratun Naasiheen)
