Rules of Joking in Islam
A few people joke an excessive amount of and it turns into a propensity for them. This is the inverse of the genuine nature which is the normal for the devotees. Joking is a break, a rest from ongoing earnestness and striving; it is a little unwinding for the spirit. ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez (may Allaah show kindness toward him) said: “Trepidation joking, for it is habit and creates feelings of resentment.”
Imam al-Nawawi (may Allaah show affection toward him) said: “The kind of joking which is illegal is what is over the top and persevering, for it prompts an excessive amount of giggling and hardening of the heart, it occupies from recognition of Allaah, and it frequently inspires hurt feelings, creates scorn and makes individuals lose appreciation and pride. Yet, whoever is sheltered from such risks, then that which the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to do is allowable for him.”
Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqaas said: “Set a breaking point to your jokes, for going to extremes makes you lose regard and incites the silly against you.”
The measure of joking ought to resemble the measure of salt in one’s sustenance.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Don’t chuckle excessively, to laugh an excessive amount of stifles the heart.” (Saheeh al-Jaami’, 7312)
‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allaah be satisfied with him) said: “Whoever snickers an excess of or jokes a lot of losing appreciation, and whoever continues in doing something will be known for it.”
So be careful with joking, for it “causes a man to lose face after he was considered as respectable, and it brings him mortification after regard.”
A man said to Sufyaan ibn ‘Uyaynah (may Allaah be satisfied with him), “Joking is wrong, it is to be reproved.” He answered, “Rather it is Sunnah, yet just for the individuals who know how to do it and do it at the fitting time.”
These days, in spite of the fact that the Ummah needs to increase the affection between its people and to ease itself of weariness, it has run too far with respect to unwinding, giggling and jokes. This has turned into a propensity which fills their gatherings and squanders their time, so their lives are wasted and their daily papers are loaded with jokes and trivia.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “In the event that you recognized what I know, you would chuckle close to nothing and sob much.” In Fath al-Baari it says: “What is implied by learning here needs to do with the might of Allaah and His retaliation upon the individuals who resist Him, and the fear that happen at death, in the grave and on the Day of Resurrection).
Muslim men and ladies must be inclined to pick noble and genuine companions in their lives, who will help them to make great utilization of their time and make progress toward the purpose of Allaah with earnestness and endurance, great and upright individuals whose illustration they can take after. Bilaal ibn Sa’d said: “I saw them [the Sahaabah] jokingly pretending to battle about a few products, and laughing with each other, however when night came they resembled friars.”
Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be satisfied with him) was solicited, “Did the Companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) snicker?” He said, “Yes, and the confidence in their souls resembled mountains.”
So you need to take after the case of such individuals, who were knights by day and friars (i.e., dedicated admirers) by night.
May Allaah keep us, you and our folks safe on the Day of the Greatest Terror, those to whom the get down on will approach that awesome Day:
“Enter Paradise, no apprehension might be on you, nor shall you grieve.”
