One of the sons of the pious people’s was killed in Jihaad, so he (the pious man) weeped. Then it was said to him, ”You weep, whilst he was shaheed (inshaa-Allaah)?” He said: ”Rather I weep (thinking) how he was with regards to being pleased with the decree of Allaah when he was struck by the sword” [Ath-thabaat Indal Mamaat’ of Ibnul Jawzee: page:24]
