There is no command in the Qur'an that says '...laughter is from satan, a smile is from Allah’. Allah says, “Do not say about what your lying tongues describe: 'This is halal and this is haram.''

A reader wrote : “Mr. Adnan Oktar, our Prophet (saas) has a hadith; ‘Laughter is from satan. A smile is from Allah.’ In your program, masha’Allah, there is always laughter…”

Look let me tell you something. The Companions were laughing out loud. In the verse it is said that believers laugh at the situation of the polytheists out loud. Allah humiliates them; He shames them in the hereafter. They grovel. They try to escape from hell. They try to escape from where they came from; they jump and fall down. They think that they could get out of there. They think that they found some way to escape and they scheme about it. Muslims see them and laugh out loud sitting on their thrones. Allah says, “So today those who have faith are laughing at non-believers.” They laugh at polytheists out loud. They do not smile. They laugh out loud.

However TODAY BELIEVERS LAUGH AT THOSE WHO ARE NON-BELIEVERS.

SO TODAY WHO HAVE FAITH ARE LAUGHING AT NON-BELIEVERS, ON COUCHES, GAZING IN WONDER. (Surat at-Mutaffifin, 34-35)

Laughter brings relief and opens the mind. There are people who cry all the time. They cry from morning to night. What do they say?  They say, “Cry all the time. Don't laugh.” When a person feels like laughing, he laughs. Why “...smile a little”? Does it have a standard? This is wrong. A Muslim can laugh, as he likes. He is joyful and cheerful.

If we were to act according to those false hadiths of yours, let me tell you, it would be impossible. It is also said, “Kill those who do not pray.” Women are accepted as only half a person according to one hadith. It is said that they are half a person and they could never become rulers. It is said, “Do the opposite of what they say.” According to the false explanations of what you call hadiths, these are so; but all of these are fabricated and none are paralleled in the Qur’an.

A hadith is a hadith only if it is in agreement with the Qur’an. Laughter; you laugh as you like. However with the bigots, that's not the case. According to you, we cannot sit at a table. We have to sit on the floor. We cannot also wear a jacket. It is also wrong to have a hair cut like this. There is no end to it. According to the false hadiths you mentioned, when a woman, a donkey or a pig is passing by, you cannot pray. He will not pray and then you will kill him. He will not give alms and then you will kill him. He will not fast and then you will kill him. What kind of religion is this? None of these things are in the Qur’an. Allah says in the verse, “THERE IS NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION...” (Surat al-Baqara, 256) What do you say? You say, “It is forbidden to laugh.” Laughter is forbidden. Music is also forbidden. You will not listen to music. You will not sit at a table. You will not use forks and spoons. You also cannot use a toothbrush.

Those who did evil used to laugh at those who had faith.

When they passed by them, they would wink at one another.

When they returned to their families, they would make a joke of them.

When they saw them, they would say, ‘Those people are misguided.’

But they were not sent as guardians over them.

(Surat Al-Mutaffifin Suresi, 29-33)

Look Allah says, “Non-believers were laughing at believers in this world.” Sinners are laughing at believers. Allah says, " When they passed by them, they would wink at one another.  Now they are mocking the system of the Mahdi in their own way. Surely, Allah is beyond that. They are also mocking the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). Allah says, When they returned to their families, they would make a joke of them. They were saying, When they saw them, they would say, ‘Those people are misguided.’ Pay close attention here. Look at what they say to believers: Those people are misguided. What are they going to say to the Mahdi? “Misguided.” What does Allah say in the verse? He says,They would say, ‘Those people are misguided.’ They will use the same words for the Mahdi. Even our Prophet (saas) says in one hadith, “The scholar in Istanbul will say to the Mahdi, ‘This man is misguided. He is an apostate. Do not approach him’” This is the hadith. Allah says in the verse,But they were not sent as guardians over them.Look, this is very meaningful.But they were not sent as guardians over them.”  They are trying to be guardians over the believers. “So today those who have faith are laughing at non-believers.” They are not smiling; they are laughing out loud. “On their couches, gazing in wonder” Allah says. “Have the non-believers been rewarded for what they did?” Allah says. Abide by the commandments in the Qur’an. Do not follow the wrong things. Do not make wrong judgments in the name of Allah. Look. I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed satan. Allah says, Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents lies against Allah or denies His Signs? Evildoers are certainly not successful.There is a verse: “Who could do greater wrong than someone who invents lies against Allah… (Surah Yunus, 17) Almighty Allah says, “Do not say about what your lying tongues describe”, this is very meaningful. Allah says, “Do not say about what your lying tongues describe: ‘This is halal and this is haram.’” (Surat an-Nahl, 116). What do you say? You are trying to explain to Muslims a commandment that is not in the Qur’an as the commandment of Allah, and you invite Muslims to follow your lead. Allah is surely beyond that, but you are forging a new Qur’an, a new book, a new commandment, a new way. Allah is truly beyond that. You consider the commandments of Allah, the Holy Qur’an, as somehow insufficient. (Allah and the Qur’an are surely beyond that). No way. Allah says that making additions to the religion is illegal (haram). (Adnan Oktar, February 2nd, 2013: A9 TV)

 

Among them is a group who distort the Book with their tongues so that you think it is from the Book when it is not from the Book. They say, ‘It is from Allah,’ but it is not from Allah. They tell a lie against Allah and they know it. (Surah Al ‘İmran, 78)
