Do the Angels Make Babies Laugh?
Shaykh Uthman As-Salimee (may Allah preserve him)
Question: It’s said that when a child breastfeeding laughs, without any one making him laugh the angels are responsible. Is this correct?
Answer: Verily, I don’t know any proof for this claim. Glory to Allah-This issue is widespread over numerous countries. What causes the baby to laugh, I don’t know. It could be possible that when this happens the child is thinking about something or imaging something. May Allah bless you, I don’t know what causes the child to laugh, and we don’t have any evidence that he sees the Angels when he laughs.
