Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Sometimes when I'm watching a nasheed or a very emotional video, I feel like crying but I don't because I don't want the people around me to think I'm a sensitive person or as I like to say "a girl". I heard that it's better for you to cry as there is a hadith or something else that says that eye the cries will not feel the heat of hellfire. What should I do? Do I cry? But then I care about what others think about me, I don't know why but that's just me. What should I do?

omar, did you look into that whole slavery thing? and coitus interruptus, raping your new caught slave girls?

I don't want to look into that subject as it's complicated for me to understand.

cool, no problem. yeah, most things are when it come to religion.

as for this question, i don't know anything about an "islamic" answer for this one. i can tell you personally i don't cry infront of others either. but as i've gotten older i find myself choking up during movies when i'm alone much more often. don't be too worried about being hard all the time. that's not what makes a man.

i do think there is a book of hadiths about softening one's heart. but i've never read it and it may not be applicable. and of course it may not be your heart but your ego that you are talking about.

You have to cry for Allah (S.W.T),,,,,nt for anyone... More over...if u cant do so...u can cry or weep lonely at namaz time and at home,etc seeking forgiveness...

Brother just cry in your own time.crying infront of people is fine aswell as well because it shows you have a good heart. Be a brave man.
