After reading the archived discussion material on Wikiquote on this topic at
http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Wikiquote: ... /Archive/2
I wholeheartedly agree. It appears to be a fairly modern origin.
Where "laugh" occurs in The Koran

Ahan..Im quite sure this is not from the Quran...The Quran does not teach us to laugh. The Prophet of Islam always "smiled" and refrained from laughing in loud tones...How could Quran , The book Of Allah which the prophet (SAW) followed , instruct us to laugh. I'd request to the person's concerned to recheck there sources...Some organizations are popular for spreading wrong informations about the Quran in order to spread propaganda\\

Though I've not personally checked, but Ill be back after giving this a thorough check in a day's time.

Thanks for the research and insight. I've changed this one to "Anonymous," with a note, for now.

I doubt whoever spread it (apparently it appears in several books) intended it as propoganda - more likely, it's one of those cases where an "authority" is attached to an anonymous quote to make it seem more profound. (If you want it to sound smart, claim it was Einstein, if you want it to sound funny, claim it was Oscar Wilde, etc.)
