Our Salaf: Aamir Bin Abdi Qais at the time of death!

Alqamah Ibn Murthid (rahimahullaah) said: Aamir Bin Abdi Qais (rahimahullaah) wept when death came upon him; so it was said to him, “Do you despair because of death, so you weep?” He said, “Why should I not weep and who is more worthy of that than I?! By Allaah! Neither am I weeping out of despairing because of death nor out of eagerness for your dunyah and being desirous of it; but I weep due to the thirst of the midday heat (i.e. will miss  fasting) and the night prayer during winter.”
[Siyar 4/19]
