It is proven from authentic hadiths that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) occasionally indulged in good light-hearted humour.
This compilation contain humourous anecdotes recorded in classical Arabic sources.
Ali ibn Abi Talib mentioned: ”Amuse the hearts and engage in some light-hearted wit because hearts tire as bodies do.”
Ibn al-Jawzi mentioned: ”Ulama always expressed an interest in light-hearted humour and would lift the spirits of others because humour relaxes the soul and relieves the hearts of its burdens.”
