The first important thing about "does laughing break Salah in Islam?" what I will explain now is things that break Salah in Islam. I want you to understand all of that first before you read more explanations in this article because those are all the basic things in this discussion that must be well understood.

If we read some Islamic legal literature regarding Salah, we will find an explanation that there are 16 things that can break Salah. The 16 things I mean are as follows:

  • One: have small or large hadas.

Minor hadas and major hadas are two things that can break Salah because these two things can break the sanctity of Muslims. So, our Salahs will not be valid if we have hadas. We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : لَا يَقْبَلُ اللهُ صَلَاةَ أَحَدِكُمْ إِذَا أَحْدَثَ حَتَّى يَتَوَضَّأَ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, "Allah does not accept someone's Salah from you if he has hadas (small hadas: الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) until he performs wudu." This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

  • Two: get unclean (najis).

We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏: إِذَا جَاءَ أَحَدُكُمْ المَسْجِدَ , فَلْيَنْظُرْ, فَإِنْ رَأَى فِي نَعْلَيْهِ أَذًى أَوْ قَذَرًا فَلْيَمْسَحْهُ , وَلْيُصَلِّ فِيهِمَا

From Abu Said radliyallahu anhu, he said, "The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "When any of you comes to the mosque he should look and if he sees impurity on his sandals (shoes) he should wipe them and then pray in them."

  • Three: nakedness is open but not immediately closed.
  • Four: converse.
  • Five: deliberately doing things that break fasting, such as eating and drinking.
  • Six: eat a lot even if it's not intentional.
  • Seven: move more than three times in a row even if not on purpose.
  • Eight: move with big motions, such as jumping and hitting.
  • Nine: precedes or delays in following the movement of the priest until two pillars are without reason such as the priest is bowing, but the congregation is already in itidal, the priest is prostrating, but the congregation has woken up from prostration or vice versa.
  • Ten: not facing Qibla.
  • Eleven: laughing loudly, having phlegm, and deliberately coughing lightly for no reason. But it doesn't cancel if you just smile.
  • Twelve: changing intentions such as when praying the intention is 'if it rains I want to pick up the clothesline', then the Salah is broken instantly.
  • Thirteen: doubts about changing intentions.
  • Fourteen: having the intention of canceling the Salah under certain conditions, such as when you are praying, your heart says that if there are guests, I will cancel my Salah.
  • Fifteen: not doing the pillars of Salah such as not tahiyat.
  • Sixteen: adding to the pillars of Salah besides Fatihah and tahiyat.

Those are 16 things that break Salah. I really hope that you all understand that so that you can understand the answers to the questions that are the main discussion in this article.
