Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) narrates:

“I never saw the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) laughing in such a way that his uvula (i.e. the soft fleshy tissue hanging in the back of the throat) became visible. He used to merely smile.”



Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 4828, 6092 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 899)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
