Being unable to cry

Q: I have come to Saudi for Hajj. I was first in Medina where I would cry a lot out of repentance and when I used to make dua, after a few days I have gone so hard that I can not cry any longer, even though I pretend to cry it’s very difficult, is this a bad thing? Is this a sign of my Duaas not been accepted? If so please advice me as what to do.


A: The actual crying is the crying of the heart. The fact that you are feeling in this way is a good sign.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
