Our Salaf: Saeed Ibn Abdil-Azeez At-Tanookhiy–What is this weeping that occurs from you in Salaah?
Abu Abdir-Rahmaan Al-Asadiy (rahimahullaah) said: I said to Saeed Ibn Abdil Azeez (rahimahullaah): O father of Muhammad! What is this weeping that occurs from you in salaah? He said: O son of my brother! What is the (reason) for your question about this? I said: O my uncle! Perhaps Allaah may benefit me by it. So Saeed said: I do not stand up in my salaah except that the hell fire is exemplified for me.
Abu Mushir (rahimahullaah) said: A man said to Saeed Ibn Abdil Azeez (rahimahullaah): May Allaah prolong your life; so he became angry and said: ”rather may Allaah hasten His mercy for me.”
