Shakespeare's Famous Quotes

"Leave her to heaven"

What does this quote mean?

In William Shakespeare's Hamlet a ghost comes to speak to Hamlet about getting revenge for his fathers death. The ghost appears on the platform in the middle of the night at Elsinore Castle. While in part of the ramparts the ghost says to Hamlet "leave her to heaven". The ghost is referring to Hamlet's mother and requesting that the revenge of his fathers death doesn't involve his mother. The requesting tone captivates the reader because the ghost is telling Hamlet to let heaven decide his mothers fate. This leads to the idea that something might happen to Hamlet's mother by the will of the heavens.
