Zakariyyah Al-Abdee (rahimahullaah) said: Ibraaheem An-Nakhaee (rahimahullaah) wept during his illness, so it was said to him: ‘’O father of Imraan what makes you weep?! He said: ”Why should I not weep whilst I am waiting for a messenger from Allaah (i.e. the Angel of death) to give me glad tidings of either this (i.e. Paradise) or (sorrowful news) of that (i.e. hell fire).”

[Hilyatul Awliyaa 4/224]
