The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.

    On telling jokes

    Report bad ads?

    Assalamualaikum

    I heard that joking is sunnah which would mean that it is rewarded right? So if a person joked to impress others or to be liked by others, would that be minor shirk because you are doing it for other people.

    (Sorry if my questions may sound silly. I believe I have excessive waswas and I get really anxious and all these questions come to mind).

    Re: On telling jokes

    Jokes lighten the mood and keep audiences alert and attentive - maths teachers often receive advice during training to crack a joke in order to keep it live.

    The problem is if we tell lies and people are unjustly cheated - and especially if we tell lies and evil stories in a funny way and cast illusions into peoples minds by tricking them into laughing at evil.

    There was at least one practical joker from amongst the companions by the name of Al-Nuayman ibn Amr and some of his pranks bordered on outrageous - but he was obviously human and most of the people somehow got along with him merrily.
