Muslim would only cry out of love for Allah; crying out of sadness is unlawful
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated December 6th, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: "The other point that I've been curious about is related with you my blessed Master. I have watched and listened to your speeches for hundreds of hours but I have never seen you crying," this one says. Well, may Allah not make us cry, may Allah forbid. "On the contrary, you get hold of your feelings and everyone around you in a very unique way. Master, doesn't anything that would cause you cry ever happen?" says this brother. One would cry out of love for Allah. One might cry out of exaltation. For instance one might cry out of exaltation for the beauty of a little child. For instance, one might cry out of love for Allah when you see the beauty of a gorgeous woman. Or for instance, you listen to a very beautiful music, you become exuberant and cry out of love for Allah. But crying out of sadness is unlawful. That is a very abnormal behavior. It would mean rebellion to the destiny [may Allah forbid].
