Crying because of the fear of Allaah

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 5, Page 353

When Muhammad ibn al-Munkadir wept, he would wipe his tears over his face and beard, saying:

It reached me that the Fire will not harm the area which has been touched by the tears [which flowed due to the fear of Allaah].
