JOKING Arabic Mizah مزاح
It is said Muhammad was fond of jesting, but Ibn ‘Abbas relates that the Prophet said, “Do not joke with your brother Muslim to hurt him.”
Anas relates that the prophet said to an old woman, “No old woman will enter Paradise.” The old woman said “Why?” And the Prophet said, “Because it is written in the Qur’an (Surah lvi. 35) ‘We have made them virgins.’ There will be no old women in heaven.” (Mishkat, book xxii. ch. xii.)
