SNEEZING AND YAWNING


Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (radi Allahu anhu) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Allah(Azzawajal) likes sneezing and dislikes yawning: so if anyone of you sneezes and then praises Allah , every Muslim who hears him (praising Allah ) has to say,May Allah bestow His Mercy on you. But as regards yawning, it is from Shaytaan, so if one of you yawns, he should try his best to stop it, for when anyone of you yawns, Shaytaan laughs at him. (Bukhari)

If the one who sneezes is a Christian, Jew or any non-Muslim, respond by saying:“Yahdikumullah-o-wa-Yusleh Balakum” (May Allah give you guidance and make your children pious).

It is mentioned in the Hadith that any person who says “Alhamd-o-Lillahi Ala-Kull-e-Haalin” at the time of sneezing, he will never experience an earache or a toothache. It is unlawful to consider the sound of sneeze as a sign of bad omen.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: The yawning is from the Shaytaan. So when one of you yawns, he should try to restrain it as far as it lies in his power. (Muslim)

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (radi Allahu anhu) reported: At the time of sneezing, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) used to cover his mouth either with his hand or with a cloth and lowered his sound. (Tirmidi)

Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed Khudri (radi Allahu anhu) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: Keep your hand over your mouth while yawning as the Shaitaan enters an open mouth. (Muslim)
