Manly Tears

*forgive me for the weird title*


"Tears are words 
the heart can't say."


as i'm writing this, my face is flushed, with two very bulgy eyes, and a very red nose. plus, a tissue in hand. i had a similar episode just this morning too. yes, i just had my 'hyperlacrimative' episodes today. (read: attempt to sound cool).

Allah Willing, i bumped into two great videos, which i truly believe will touch every single heart there is out there. since the videos impacted me this much, i thought it'd be a great waste (and very selfish too) if i were to keep all the reminders to myself.

both videos are the things that we have always heard of, things that we have read into countless times. but it's always amazing when we are able to feel the same kind of emotions everytime we watch or hear about them. 

so here's the one that i found this morning, jazakallah to akh HM for posting it on FB.

[53 minutes long]

and here's the other one, the reason to my state at the moment =,=''. i bumped into Incik Kazak's blog for the first time, and found this video that he made. i read the entry beforehand, and was somewhat prepared for what was to come. because he actually warned that it had brought out the manly tears  in him and his friends, let alone a 'kilang air mata' like me. =,=''

[10 minutes]

after all these; i'm reminded of one of the verses in the Quran:

إِذَا تُتۡلَىٰ عَلَيۡهِمۡ ءَايَـٰتُ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ خَرُّواْ سُجَّدً۬ا وَبُكِيًّ۬ا 

"..Apabila dibacakan ayat-ayat Allah Yang Maha Pemurah kepada mereka, 

maka mereka menyungkur dengan bersujud dan menangis." 


Allahu Allah. it's definitely not an easy thing, to let the tears stream down. and not just any tears, we are reminded that the tears should be the ones that are seeking forgiveness. ones that are scared of the sins. ones that are worried of the Hereafter. ones that are pushing away Dunya. ones that are missing our Beloved Prophet. ones that wish to meet their Rabb. :'( susah. memang susah.

but now, we cried everyday, for all the wrong reasons.
menangis rindu boyfriend.
menangis hubungan tak direstu. 
(who told you to hide it from the parents?)
menangis putus tunang.
menangis tengok cerita korea.
menangis tengok Manchester United kalah.
menangis bila Lee Chong Wei patah kaki.
the list goes on. 

teringat kisah-kisah sahabat, orang-orang soleh;
when they cried because they are worried of their fate in the HereAfter,
but we are crying because we are worried of losing our Dunya.

apa-apa pun; may both videos benefit (which im pretty sure they will). may the reminders push us further in our Race towards Him. praying that we all reach our goals insyaAllah; to meet our Beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. and definitely to meet Our Creator, back in Jannah. Aamiin ya Rabb.

hoping these reminders will bring out the tears within you,
manly or not. :')
