Smiling at Your Brothers in Islam

The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Al-Ḥāfiẓ Al-Dhahabī reported the statement of Jarīr, may Allāh be pleased with him: “The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ never looked at me except [with] a smile.”

Then he added a comment, saying:

This is the character and manners of Islam; the highest positions are those who cry frequently during the night, smile frequently during the day.

Siyar [Aʿlām Al-Nubalāʾ], vol. 10, p. 141.

I say: the ḥadīth of Jarīr, may Allāh be pleased with him, is in the two Ṣaḥīḥs.
