The Attribute of Laughing – Permanent Committee

Q 2: What is the meaning of the Saying of the Prophet (peace be upon him): Allah laughs at two men, one of them kills the other and both will enter Paradise Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim ?

A: The Hadith reads: Allah laughs at two men; one of them kills the other but they both enter Paradise. One of them fights in the way of Allah, and becomes a martyr. Then, Allah guides the Killer who fights in the way of Allah, the Almighty and Exalted, and becomes a martyr.

This Hadith proves that Allah has the Attribute of Laughing yet in a way that befits His Magnificence and Greatness. He is like no other being. Allah (Glorified be He) says: There is nothing like Him; and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
