Phrase:No rest for the wicked 2

Question ID: 27459

Jazakallah for the reply to question ID:27437.
Hope the below clears any confusion.

Meaning and origin for the phrase, ‘no rest for the wicked’ is below:

Literal meaning – the wicked shall be tormented.
Origin: The phrase was originally expressed as ‘no peace for the wicked’ and refers to the eternal torment of Hell that awaited sinners. Not surprisingly, the it derives from the Bible – Isaiah 57.
The expression was first printed in English in Miles Coverdale’s Bible, 1535:
20: But the wicked are like the raginge see, that ca not rest, whose water fometh with the myre & grauel.
21: Eueso ye wicked haue no peace, saieth my God.

The phrase appears in print periodically of the centuries, often with direct reference back to the biblical text. Its use in a figurative secular sense became much more common in the 1930s and it is now usually used for mild comic effect. The 1930s usage picked up after 1933 when Harold Gray used the phrase as a title for one of his highly popular Little Orphan Annie cartoons, which was syndicated in several US newspapers.

(“no rest for the wicked,” whicb also implies that the devil will not allow his followers to rest from their evil doings
1. literally, Eternal torment in hell awaits sinners.
2. humorous, People who are wicked must work harder than normal people.)

If A Muslim was working away hard and was given more work. A Christian colleague said the following phrase to him:“no rest for the wicked.” The Muslim just laughed and verbally said, “I know”. Although the Muslim does not follow the shaitaan and does not believe in Christianity. Does the Muslim lose his imaan by laughing and saying any of the above or by verbally saying the phrase ‘no rest for the wicked’ ?
