Do the heavens and the earth weep?Ibn Jarir recorded that Said bin Jubayr said, “A man came to Ibn Abbas, may Allaah be pleased with him, and said to him: O Abu Al-Abbas, Allaah says:

{And the heavens and the earth wept not for them, nor were they given respite}
~ [Surat ad-Dukhaan, 44:29]

– do the heavens and the earth weep for anybody?’ He, may Allaah be pleased with him, said, Yes, there is no one who does not have a gate in the heavens through which his provision comes down and his good deeds ascend. When the believer dies, that gate is closed; it misses him and weeps for him, and the place of prayer on earth where he used to pray and remember Allaah also weeps for him. But the people of Firawn left no trace of righteousness on the earth and they had no good deeds that ascended to Allaah, so the heavens and the earth did not weep for them.”’ 
~ [Tafseer ibn Katheer]

SubhaanAllaah, ask yourselves & reflect, will the heavens and earth weep for you once you depart this worldly life?
