In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate

In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate
Al-Quran (30:30)

So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth. [Adhere to] the fitrah of Allah upon which He has created [all] people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah. That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.

فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا فِطْرَةَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي فَطَرَ النَّاسَ عَلَيْهَا لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ اللَّهِ ذَلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
[Al-Imran 3:8] "[Who say], "Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower."

Will the heavens and earth weep for you?

Ibn Jareer recorded that Sa`eed bin Jubayr said, "A man came to Ibn `Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with him, and said to him: ‘O Abaa al-`Abbaas, Allaah says, "{And the heavens and the earth wept not for them, nor were they given respite.} [ad-Dukhaan 44:29]" ‘Do the heavens and the earth weep for anybody?’ 

He, may Allah be pleased with him, said, ‘Yes, there is no one who does not have a gate in the heavens through which his provision comes down and his good deeds ascend. When the believer dies, that gate is closed; it misses him and weeps for him, and the place of prayer on earth where he used to pray and remember Allaah also weeps for him. 

But the people of Fir`awn left no trace of righteousness on the earth and they had no good deeds that ascended to Allaah, so the heavens and the earth did not weep for them.’”Al-`Awfi reported something similar from Ibn `Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him.Extracted from Tafseer Ibn Katheer
