Do Not Laugh at Others

It is not permissible for a believer to laugh at another person because of their ethnicity, name, faith, racial backgrounds, wealth status, … etc. Allay says in the Holy Quran:

O ye who believe! Let not a folk deride a folk who may be better than they (are), not let women (deride) women who may be better than they are; neither defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. Bad is the name of lewdness after faith. And whoso turneth not in repentance, such are evil-doers. (11)

Quran 49:11

Laughing at a person because of their names or ethnicity implies racism. A person who has a tiny bit of arrogance in his heart is not a true believer. Allah says in the Holy Quran:

Turn not thy cheek in scorn toward folk, nor walk with pertness in the land. Lo! Allah loveth not each braggart boaster. (18)

Quran 31:18

Those who insult others because of their color or ethnic backgrounds are insulting the Creator. Such people should be advised to stop, and if they do not you must not be friends with them.
