"So let them laugh a little and (they will) cry much as a recompense of what they used to earn (by committing sins)." [Taubah: 82]
Ibn Abee Talhah reported from Ibn Abbaas – may Allaah be pleased with him - that he said about the Verse above:
الدنيا قليل، فليضحكوا فيها ما شاءوا، فإذا انقطعت الدنيا وصاروا إلى الله، عز وجل، استأنفوا بكاء لا ينقطع أبد
‘The world is infinitesimal, so let them laugh as they like. When the world cease to be and they go on to meet Allaah – the Mighty and Most Sublime – they (the hypocrites) will start a round of cries that will never cease.’
We ask Allaah for His mercy.
So, carry on, O hysterical laughers, laugh in Zulu or Swahili, and if you like in Efik or Birom, you will definitely meet your Lord one day with that laughter.
