person who meets others with a smile drives away the daily life tension,
anxiety and troubles. Islam is not only the religion it teaches us the
complete code of life. It teaches us how to behave from morning till
night, the best positions to sleep and other rules that are beneficial
for us in our daily life. Smiling is a kind act and the Sunnah of our
beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He (PBUH) was well known to have a
pleasant smiling face, and it is part of one’s character. Companions of
Holy Prophet are also kind-hearted, well-mannered and have a smiling
face. Islam mostly spread through the kind and sweet behavior of
‘Abdullah ibn-Haarith ibn Hazm, said: “I never saw anyone smile more than the Prophet (PBUH)” (Tirmidhi). Jeerer ibn ‘Abdullah Al-Bajali, said:” The Prophet (PBUH), did not keep himself from me ever since I embraced Islam, and whenever he saw me, he received me with a smile” (Al-Bukhari).
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) smiled, often and with real joy. In fact, our
beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) smiled so regularly that His smile and
kind behavior are mentioned many times.
When one of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) companions was asked
if he sat with the Prophet he replied, “Yes, very often. He (the Prophet SAW)
used to sit at the place where He (PBUH) observed the morning or dawn prayer
till the sun rose or when it had risen; He (SAW) would stand, and they (his
Companions) would talk about matters (pertaining to the days) of ignorance, and
they would laugh (on these matters) while (the Prophet) only smiled.”
Smiling is the sign of friendliness across the world and it is the
natural way that shares our happiness with others. Smiling has also been
seen to increase productivity. Smiling lowers, the heart rate and also
calms your blood pressure and reduces stress and anxiety. Smiling boosts
your mood by producing more endorphins that in turn diminish stress
