SubhanAllah, I remember when I was younger I thought to myself that true and strong men do not cry. Like if you were one of those ‘real men’ you should not cry. But alhamdulillah slowly and surely as one grows one learns - because who is more real then the one who gives his heart to Allah and cries out to Him subhana wa ta’ala. In my eyes the strong and real man is the one who put down his arrogance and seeks Allah’s forgiveness with tears in his eyes. What is more beautiful than seeing a weak soul praying to his Creator for help, because after all we all are weak human beings who constantly are in the need of our Creator.
