Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abbad was asked:
“Oh Virtuous Shaikh, some callers have emerged today using laughter and jokes as a means of da’wah with the argument that it attracts the hearts of the youth. So what is the ruling on this?
“This is not good. This is an action that is not good. A person should be someone of seriousness and not someone of humor/jokes” End translation. [Sharh Ibn Majah no. 306]
