How can you get rewarded for making dua’ for someone, gain hasanaat for reviving an abandoned sunnah, and be rewarded for teaching a child a sunnah habit, inshaa’Allah, gaining ongoing charity for each time they say “alhamdulillah” when they sneeze?

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan said: As for the child if it sneezes you do not respond to it (saying ‘yarhamakAllaah,’ etc.) but rather you make dua’ for barakah for him/her. It is said: ‘BaraakAllaahu feek.’ Because a child sneezed in the presence of the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) whereupon he said: ‘BaarakAllaah feek.’ [Reported by al-Haafidh as-Silafi] And he commanded the child to praise Allah upon sneezing, as to teach the child. [Sharh Mandhoomah al-Aadaab ash-Shar’iyyah 280]

The next time a child sneezes in your presence:
1. Say “BaraakAllahu feek.”
2. Tell the child to say “alhamdulillah.”
3. Teach others this habit, inshaa’Allah.
