Is it wrong to cry, get angry and be sad when we face some troubles and calamities? How can we avoid having such feelings?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is not wrong to be sad and cry without revolting against Allah (SWT) during the time of troubles. As a matter of fact, our prophet Muhammad (PBUH) cried upon the death of his son, Hz. Abraham, near his grave. This shows that it is permissible to be sad during the troubles and calamities. However, it is necessary to avoid saying things which are considered revolting such as ‘why has this trouble come to me?’, ‘what did I make wrong to deserve these things?’ and so on.
