  • Hadith on Laughter: Why have you made My servants despair?

    Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, came to his companions while they were laughing and talking. The Prophet said, “By the one in whose hand is my soul, if you knew what I knew, you would laugh little and weep often.” The Prophet departed and people started weeping, so Allah Almighty revealed to him, “O Muhammad, why have you made my servants despair?” The Prophet returned and he said, “Give glad tidings, follow the right course, and seek nearness to Allah.”

    عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ‏ خَرَجَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَلَى رَهْطٍ مِنْ أَصْحَابِهِ يَضْحَكُونَ وَيَتَحَدَّثُونَ فَقَالَ‏ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ مَا أَعْلَمُ لَضَحِكْتُمْ قَلِيلاً وَلَبَكَيْتُمْ كَثِيرًا ثُمَّ انْصَرَفَ وَأَبْكَى الْقَوْمَ وَأَوْحَى اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلَيْهِ‏ يَا مُحَمَّدُ لِمَ تُقَنِّطُ عِبَادِي‏ فَرَجَعَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ‏ أَبْشِرُوا وَسَدِّدُوا وَقَارِبُوا

    وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

    And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


    أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

    Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

          Because all this time I only knew about the first bit and I'm thinking "where has the second bit been hiding all this time... and why haven't I come across it until now when I've come across the first part so many times????".  I'm not shocked that a hadith can state this, in fact it makes far more sense now- I'm shocked as to why the second part of it has been kept from us for so long.
