Ridiculing, Taunting, and Blaming - Making Jokes of Someone

To make jokes or taunt the Muslims is the work of the hypocrites. The hypocrites did that even in the Prophet SAWW times. ALLAH mentioned that in the Quran. And this thing is done in a number of ways.

Taunting those who do religious work:
The muslims were in dire need of monetary help during the battle of Tabuk. When the Prophet SAWW appealed for contribution, Abu Bakar RA brought everything he possessed, Umar RA brought hold of his possessions and Uthman RA donated hundreds of well-equipped camels for ALLAH's cause. The Prophet SAWW remarked that if Uthman RA did nothing after that then that single deed from him was enough. Some of the Sahaba RA engaged in manual labour and contributed their wages to the cause. But, instead of spending for this cause, the hypocrites made fun of the Muslims. ALLAH says about them:

الَّذِينَ يَلْمِزُونَ الْمُطَّوِّعِينَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي الصَّدَقَاتِ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَجِدُونَ إِلَّا جُهْدَهُمْ فَيَسْخَرُ‌ونَ مِنْهُمْ ۙ سَخِرَ‌ اللَّـهُ مِنْهُمْ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ
 Those who find fault with the believers who give alms cheerfully and such as find not anything to give but their hard earnings-they deride them. ALLAH derides them and for them is a painful chastisement. (9:79)

Abu Musad RA said about this verse "When we were commanded to give the Sadaqah, we were labourers. Abu Aqil RA came with half a Sa' (of dates) and another man (Abdur Rahman Ibn Awf RA brought more than that the hypocrites exclaimed 'Surely ALLAH is in no need of this Sadaqah, and this second one has not done it but to show off.' This verse 9:79 was then revealed." Bukhari # 1415 4668, Muslim # 72-1018 

There are people today who make fun of Muslims who adhere to the dictates of Islam and give charity, are inclined to piety, offer the Salah, wear garments according to the Shariah, grow the beard or take part in Jihad. If a woman uses the veil, they  taunt her and say that these are old fashioned people. They consider themselves as modern. But they will not hear anything against the disbelievers who are their ideal.

The Muslims should be the careful of those people. The disbelievers do not cause harm to the Muslims are much as these people cause.
