Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه on his death bed

أن أبا هريرة بكى في مرضه : فقيل : ما يبكيك ؟ قال : ما أبكي على دنياكم هذه ، ولكن على بعد سفري ، وقلة زادي ، وأني أمسيت في صعود ، ومهبطه على جنة أو نار ، فلا أدري أيهما يؤخذ بي

سير أعلام النبلاء

Abu Hurairah رحمة الله عليه began to cry as he was on his deathbed:

It was said to him: what makes you cry?

He said: I am not crying over this transit world of yours. Rather I am crying over my long journey and lack of provisions (for the journey). And what awaits me in descending to paradise or fire, and I know not which one of them will take me.
