Hadith Reminders

 
Woe to the one who says something which is false in order to make people laugh! Woe to him, woe to him!

At-Tirmidhi
The Muslim is forbidden to joke and laugh about other people's values and honour. Allah says: "O you who believe, let not some people mock at other people; it may be that they are better than you…" (49:11). Nor is it appropriate for the Muslim to tell jokes based on what is untrue in order to make people laugh.
