By Sh Aa'idh Al-Qarni

Laughing moderately can act as a cure or as therapy for depression and sadness. It has a strong influence on keeping the soul light and the heart clear. Abu Darda' (may Allah be pleased with him) said, "I make it a practice to laugh in order to give rest and comfort to my heart. And the noblest of people, Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), would laugh, sometimes until his molars became visible."

Laughing is an efficacious way to achieve comfort and lightheartedness, but keep in mind that, as in other things, you should not be immoderate. The Prophet (Blessings and Peace be upon him) said: "Do not laugh excessively, for verily, excessive laughter kills the heart."

What is called for is moderation.

"And if you smile in the face ofyour brother, then that is a form of charity." ~So he. Sulayman, smiled, amused by her speech. ~ (Qur'an 27: 19)

Also, when you laugh, you should not do so in a mocking or jeering fashion: "But when he came to them with Our Aayaat [proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.] behold! They laughed at them." (Qur 'an 43: 47)

Among the pleasures of Paradise will be laughter: "But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe will laugh at the disbelievers)." (Qur 'an 83: 34)

The Arabs would hold in high esteem a person who was known for his smile and laughter. They believed this to be a sign of a generous personality and of a person who has a noble disposition and a clear mind. The truth is that the principles of Islam are based on moderation and on good measure, whether it is in matters of belief, worship, manners, or conduct. Islam does not condone a rigid, frowning expression, nor does it condone a constant playful giddiness; rather what it does promote is seriousness when it is called for, and a reasonable level of light-heartedness when it is called for.

Bearing a gloomy mien and a frowning countenance are marks of a lowly character, a troubled nature, and hot-headedness. "Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way.." (Qur 'an 74: 22)

The Prophet (Blessings and Peace be upon him) said: "Do not disparage (underestimate) any good deed (no matter how small it is), even if that deed was to meet your brother with a friendly countenance."

BOOK REVIEW: 'Falling In Love' With Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam by Rehana Shah Bulbulia
Falling In Love With Muhammad Sallallahu‘Alayhi WaSallam, is the debut book of Sister Rehana Shah-Bulbulia.  Born and based in South Africa, she is a writer for The Muslim Woman Magazine and a free-lance journalist.

Comprising the significant number of 63 chapters, Falling In Love With Muhammad Sallallahu‘Alayhi WaSallam, is a collation of short stories, extracted from the life and biography of the Final Messenger Muhammad Sallallahu‘Alayhi WaSallam conveying the essence of who he was; highlighting his salient qualities and the reason he continues to be an absolute inspiration and the beloved of millions... This amazing book, which is an easy read, was written to cater for not just Muslims, but for non-Muslims too.  It’s an ideal gift for non-Muslim colleagues and acquaintances, especially in this climate of ignorance of the Final Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu‘Alayhi WaSallam, the greatest man to have ever set foot on this earth.  The following podcasts share the theme and storyline of the book:  Book Review and analysis by Ml Ashraf Docrat as well as various discussions and book giveaways by Radio Islam's presenters including Ml Ebrahim Bham, Mufti Moosagie , Ml Sulaiman Ravat, Apa Zaakirah  and Apa Amaarah…

‘What you hold in your hands is a treasure.  A treasure unfolding before you as you turn the pages and discover the life of our beloved Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu‘AlayhiWaSallam…’ Excerpt from the Forward by Khudeja Pochee, Editor, The Muslim Woman Magazine, South Africa.

‘May ALLAH reward the author for presenting an extremely important theme in a contemporary style that I am confident will resonate with the youth and those who love reading.’ Excerpt from the Forward by Moulana Ebrahim Bham, Secretary-General, Jamiatul Ulama, Johannesburg, South Africa.

There were 3 men who were working on a bridge. One of the worker's name was John, the other one's name was Randall, and the last one's name was Joe.

So one day when the 3 men were taking a lunch break, they all opened up their lunch box and saw what their wives had gave them for lunch.

When John opened his lunch, he saw that he had peanut butter and jelly, so then he said, "If my wife gives me the same lunch tomorrow, I'm going to jump off this bridge. Then Randall opened his lunch and saw that he had spaghetti and meatballs. So then he also said the same thing as what John said. Then when Joe opened his lunch he saw that he was having a chicken salad. So then he said that he too was going to jump off the bridge if he got the same lunch the next day.

So the next day, all 3 men had the same lunch from yesterday and they all jumped off. A week later when the funeral was scheduled, John's wife said, "If my sweetie-pie told me he wanted a new lunch, he should have told me!” then Randalls wife said "Why did he do it? Why??” then Joe's wife said, "Why did he jump off the bridge? He packed his own lunch!"
