Laughing moderately can act as a cure or as therapy for depression and sadness. It has a strong influence on keeping the soul light and the heart clear. Abu Darda RA said: "I make it a practice to laugh in order to give rest and comfort to my heart." And the noblest of peoples Muhammad Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam would laugh sometimes until his molars became visible."
Laughing is an efficacious way to achieve comfort and light-heartedness, but keep in mind that as in other things, you should not be immoderate. The Prophet Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam said: "do not laugh excessively, for verily excessive laughter kills the heart." What is called for is moderation.
"And if you smile in the face of your brother then that is a form of chanty."

Also he, {Sulayman AS smiled, amused by her speech} (Qur'aan 27:19)

Also when you laugh, you should not do so in a mocking or in a jeering fashion: "but when he came to them with Our Aayaat [proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.] behold! They laughed at them." (Qur'aan 43:47)

Among the pleasures of Paradise will be laughter: "And this Day [the Day of Resurrection those who believe will laugh." (Qur'aan 83: 34)

The Arabs held in high esteem a person who was known for his smile and laughter. They believed this to be a sign of a generous personality and of a person who has a noble disposition and a clear mind.

The truth IS that the principles of Islam are based on moderation and on good measure, whether it is in matters of belief worship, manners, or conduct. Islam does not condone a rigid frowning expression, nor does it condone a constant playful giddiness; rather what it does promote is seriousness when it is called for, and a reasonable level of light-heartedness when it is called for.

Bearing a gloomy mien and a frowning countenance are marks of a lowly character a troubled natures and hot-headedness. "Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way." (Qur'aan 74:22)

The Prophet Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam said: "Do not disparage (Underestimate) any good deed (No matter how small it is), even if that deed was to meet your brother with a friendly countenance." Ahmed Ameen said in his book Fayd al-Khaatir.
