Respected scholars of Islam, As-Salamu `alaykum. Does crying in prayer nullify it?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I read in some books a hadith to the effect that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "The deceased will be tortured (in his grave) because of his relatives' crying over him." In fact, I doubted the authenticity of that hadith, for there is an established principle in the Qur'an that no one will be accounted for others' sins. Allah Almighty says: "No soul earns (evil) but against itself, and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another" (Al-An`am: 164). Does this verse not contradict the hadith referred to? Is that hadith authentic or not? If it is authentic, what does it mean exactly, and how can we reconcile between it and the Qur'anic verse quoted above? Jazakum Allah khayran.
