Assalamu alaikum Wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
Is it necessary to cry while making dua? If tears do not come out, does that mean our duas are not accepted?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
No, it is not necessary to cry while making dua, but it is recommended to do so. A person is encouraged to think about his sins and jahannam, so that he can cry due to fear of Allah (SWT).
It is narrated from Prophet (S.a.w) that he said; "No man who weeps for fear of Allah will be touched by the Fire until the milk goes back into the udders. And the dust (of Jihad) in the cause of Allah and the smoke of Hell, will never be combined in the nostrils of a Muslim." (Sunan an-Nasa'i 3107).
Only Allah knows best
