Hi! First of all, I will explain the answer to one basic question about laughing out loud that you should understand well: is laughing out loud allowed in Islam? You should understand that because it will help you understand the main topic in this discussion.

Before I explain the answer to that question (is laughing out loud allowed in Islam?), I will explain the legality of laughing in Islam: is it allowed or not. You have to understand that because it is a basic thing that you have to understand well.

Is Laughing Allowed in Islam?

In short, I would like to say that there are different opinions about the legality of laughing in Islam. Some Islamic experts say that it is allowed, but some Islamic experts who say that it is not allowed, only smile.

The opinion of several Islamic law experts who say that laughing is allowed is based on the hadith below:

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : يَضْحَكُ اللهُ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى إِلَى رَجُلَيْنِ يَقْتُلُ أَحَدُهُمَا الآخَرَ يَدْخُلَانِ الْجَنَّةَ ، يُقَاتِلُ هَذَا فِي سَبِيْلِ اللهِ فَيُقْتَلُ ، ثُمَّ يَتُوْبُ اللهُ عَلىَ الْقَاتِلِ فُيُسْلِمُ فَيُسْتَشْهَدُ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "Allah Subhanahu wa Taala laughed at two people, the first person killed the second person, but they both entered Heaven. The first person fought in the way of Allah then was killed by the second person. Then Allah accepts the repentance of the second person (who killed the first person). He then converted to Islam and fought in the cause of Allah until he was killed."

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : لَا تُكْثِرُوْا الضَّحْكَ ، فَإِنَّ كَثْرَةَ الضَّحْكِ تُمِيْتُ الْقَلْبَ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallahu anhu. Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "Don't laugh often because it will kill your heart."

Meanwhile, the opinion of several Islamic law experts who say that laughing is not allowed, only smiling is allowed, is the opinion below (one of them):

قَالَ الْحَسَنُ الْبَصْرِيُّ رَحِمَهُ اللهُ : ضَحْكُ الْمُؤْمِنِ غَفْلَةٌ مِنْ قَلْبِهِ

Hasan al-Basri (may Allah have mercy on him) said, "The laughing of a believer is the forgetfulness of his heart."

So, is laughing allowed in Islam?

For me, laughing is something that is allowed in Islam. The reason is because there is no evidence, whether in the Quran or hadith, that specifically prohibits it. And this is the opinion of the majority of Islamic law experts.

Now, is laughing out loud allowed in Islam?

If you read some Islamic literature about laughing out loud, you will find the explanation that it is something that is better not to do. That is still tolerated in Islamic legal literature, but it should not be done.
