I am not sure what actions of mine have been raised…

كان الضحاك بن مزاحم إذا أمسى بكى، فقيل له: ما يبكيك؟ قال: لا أدري ما صعد اليوم من عملي!

صفة الصفوة

Dahhak bin muzahim would cry when the evening would enter, so it was asked of him; ‘What makes you cry?’ He replied, “I don’t know what actions of mine have been raised today!”

*He feared if his actions would be accepted or rejected, which is in accordance to the ayah:

إِلَيْهِ يَصْعَدُ الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ وَالْعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ يَرْفَعُهُ

Towards Him ascends the pure word, and the righteous deeds uplift it.

Surah Fatir:10
