Etiquette of Sneezing and Yawning



When one sneezes, one should say ALHAMDULILLAH. (Bukhari)


In reply to this, one who hears (the person who has sneezed say Alhamdulillah) should say YARHAMU KALLAH. (Bukhari)



The person who has sneezed must reply by saying: YAHDEE KUMULLAHU WAYUSLIHU BAALAKUM. (Bukhari)



Whenever our beloved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam sneezed, he used to cover his face with his hands or with a piece of cloth, so that the sound of the sneeze could not be heard too loudly. (Tirmidhi)



Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said: "When one yawns, cover the mouth with the Left hand, as the full opening of the mouth allows the Shaytaan to enter the mouth. (Muslim)


It is narrated in a Hadith, that when one yawns, one should not make the sound 'Haa', as this causes the Shaytaan to laugh. (Muslim)
