Shabbat

Question:

I heard if someone makes a joke of chilul Shabbat, he will end up doing the melacha in the future.
For example… saying on Shabbat as a joke
“ let’s drive to shul” even though we know it’s Shabbat and we can’t.
Is that true? Is one allowed to make such jokes on Shabbat?

 

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

Personally I haven’t heard of such an idea. As a child I was once told by a principle, that a person who makes fun of someone else’s problem, will eventually suffer from that very problem. However I haven’t ever heard of the idea regarding melachos on Shabbos.

Best wishes
