The only exception is Odessa where the first of April is an official city holiday.1 April becomes a holiday in Odessa]. (in Russian). March 23, 2003.
In 1964,A film released in india directed by subodh mukherji,it was a romantic comey film based on pranks, lie and jokes.My dear sisters and brothers in Islam there is never a day or a movement when shariah permits a persyti tell a lie or say whatever he wants based on totally lie. In Islam there is no lie,no excuse.All the muslims seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our own selves and from our evil deeds.Whomsoever Allah guided,non can lead astray and whom so ever He sends astray no one can guide.It has forbidden the telling of a lie in every aspect of life ,in every form and shape,for it sullies the liar,causes harm to other people and becomes a source of menace to society. Allah Says “it is only those who believe not in the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, who fabricate falsehood, and it is they who are liars”(al-Nahl 16:105). It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The signs of the hypocrite are three: when he speaks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he breaks it; and when he is entrusted with something, he betrays that trust.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 33; Muslim, 59) .Where there are lies and mocking and jokes and this and that,all in the name of jokes and laughter and amusement But it is haram “woe to him who tells something new, and tells lies, so that he may thereby make (his)people laugh woe to him!

Don’t indulge in anything that causes humiliation or disgrace to others, not even in jokes. Never insult or defame someone; it might come back on you.
Woe to him!(Tirmidhi, Abu Da’ud, Ahmad, Darimiy).You are allowed to joke cause Muhammad (S.A.W),used to have a humour. He would play. He would joke around with his companions, with the little children but as he said is an authentic narration; I only speak that which is true. So the condition of joking around, it must be in truth. Don’t go for bragging and frivolity. If you do so, you will lose your respect and trust .people do enjoy it but don’t really respect people jesting about. Don’t indulge in anything that causes humiliation or disgrace to others, not even in jokes. Never insult or defame someone; it might come back on you. Say only those things you don’t mind boomeranging. I will close my pen with this poem.
