The more one laughs
“‘Umar bin Khattab once said to Al-Ahnaf bin Qais:
“Oh Ahnaf, the more one laughs , the less dignity will he possess.
Whoever jokes (excessively) is a person who will be taken lightly. Whoever does something frequently will be known by that thing.
Whoever speaks often, errs often; the more often one errs, the less modesty he will possess;
Whomever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety; and when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.””
— Sifatus-Safwah 1/149.
