What Qur'an Says About Mockery?

And remember Moses said to his people: "(Allah) commands that ye sacrifice a heifer." They said: "Makest thou a laughing-stock of us?" He said: "(Allah) save me from being an ignorant (fool)!" [2:67]
But there are, among men, those who purchase idle tales, without knowledge (or meaning), to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah and throw ridicule (on the Path): for such there will be a Humiliating Penalty. [31:6]

When the Unbelievers see thee, they treat thee not except with ridicule. "Is this," (they say), "the one who talks of your gods?" and they blaspheme at the mention of ((Allah)) Most Gracious! [21:36]
When they see thee, they treat thee no otherwise than in mockery: "Is this the one whom Allah has sent as an apostle?" [25:41]
When ye proclaim your call to prayer they take it (but) as mockery and sport; that is because they are a people without understanding. [5:58]
