The deep respect, which the Muslim community has for the form and content of their "holy" scriptures, seriously distinguishes them from other members of religion and civilization through their reverence not only during the practice of religious rituals but also in various forms reflected in everyday life. At the same time, the members of this civilization have always felt free to produce religious content with humour down the ages by getting encouraged from the prophets who consider the jokes indulgently and whom they regarded as role models. It is understood that, this freedom also seems to encourage them to make witty remarks over the holy scripture of which the text they are familiar with because of its intensive intervention in their daily lives. In as much as, since the first century of the hijri era, hundreds of literary and humorous collections exhibiting humorous examples based on the text of Qu'ran have been introduced with an increasing quantity and quality.
