Humour Without Malice

An old woman came to the Prophet (pbuh) and said: "O Messenger of Allah, pray to Allah that I will enter Paradise." He said jokingly, "O Mother of So-and-so, no old women will enter Paradise." The old woman went away crying, so the Prophet (pbuh) said, "Tell her that she will not enter Paradise as an old woman, for old women will enter Paradise in their prime youth." - Reported by al-Tirmidhi.
