Do you know that Allah azza wa jall likes sneezing but dislikes yawning? As a Muslim you can even gain rewards by sneezing!
It was narrated from Saeed from his father, that Abu Hurairah radiyallahu ‘anhu said: Allah’s Messenger salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, ‘Allah likes sneezing, and He dislikes yawning, so if one of you yawns, let him suppress it as much as he can, and not make any noise, for that comes from Shaitan who is laughing at him.’ [Hadith No. 5028, Book of Etiquette, Sunan Abu Dawud, Vol. 5]
The natural act of sneezing is a mercy and grace of Allah. It relieves us from discomfort, and we should thank Allah ‘azza wa jall for it. When you say ”alhamdulillah” when you sneeze, you’re reviving a sunnah!
Narrated Abu Hurairah radiyallahu ‘anhu: Allah’s Messenger salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: ‘If anyone of you sneezes, he (she) should say ”Alhumdulillah” (Praise be to Allah) and his brother or his companion (i.e. one who is with him/her) should say ‘’Yarhamuk Allah’’ (May Allah have mercy on you). When the latter says ‘’Yarhamuk Allah,” the former should say ‘’Yahdikumullah, wa yuslihu balakum’’ (May Allah guide you and set your affairs straight).’ [Hadith No. 6224, Book of Al-Adab, Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 8]
There’s another sunnah to revive while sneezing; it’s covering your mouth as the prophet did.
Whenever the Messenger of Allah salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam sneezed, he would cover his mouth with his hand or a piece of cloth, suppressing the sound this way. [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi]
- Remind yourself to say the sunnah supplications while sneezing or when a fellow Muslim sneeezes in your presence.
- Cover your mouth with your hand or a piece of cloth when you sneeze.
- Teach children and others the sunan of sneezing!

Assalaam Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu
Jazak Allahu khairan for reminding the beautiful sunnah. There is a great wisdom in every sunnah. According to medical research it is examined that when a person sneezes he discharges approximately 80,000 bacteria with his sneeze.(Wallahu Aalamu). It is a great blessings of Sunnah to cover the mouth while sneezing, why because the bacteria comes out from the mouth and nose may harm or effect others ( a beautiful precautionary measure). This is a medical aspect. But we should practice this sunnah not because of hygenic health point of view but in following our beloved Prophet (pbuh) advise. and there is great reward in following sunnah with love.
May Allah give tawfeeq to all of us.
Assalmwalkm zarzarkallha for Sunnah
thanks for reviving a great sunnah
We clearify that no body is suppose to comment on ISLAM of QURAN.We have to accept as it is ,what mentioned in holy book the QURAN.As per QURAN all books written on QURAN and ISLAM are not required .We seek mercy from ALLAH for writing this but We have no comments of our own .It is written with the reference of QURAN only.
Before around 1400 Years ALLAH sent messages to prophet Mohammed sav though angle named “Jebrael” and informed him that ALLAH has appointed you as messager.The revelations, the messages came to prophet for 22 to 23 years and called holy book the QURAN.ALLAH commanded prophet to pass messages .
As per QURAN also ALLAH exist and as per QURAN ALLAH has created this universe and ALLAH is supreme power.
Phophet Mohammed sav was the prophet of ALLAH.
To refer further please keep in mind that mumeens have faith in
1— existence of ALLAH ……… 2-QURAN is the book of ALLAH …………………… 3-Mohammed sav the prophet of ALLAH.
There are two billions muslims in this world but very few Mumeens.Those who have faith in ISLAM are called Muslims and those Muslims have faith in islam and who read, understand and follow QURAN are mumeens.
As per QURAN mumeens follow QURAN and don’t talk ,discuss ,interfear in the faith of all other religion.
Every person on this earth is free to adop any religion and faith they like or no religion and faith.Any person can have faith in one or more then one religion.It is the duty of Mumeens to see that no element disturb other’s religion under any circumstances what so ever.As per QURAN Mumeens are supposed to cover body but others may or may not .As per Quran Mumeens may or may not eat non veg and non mumslim may or not.All human being are free to have faith in their respective religions.There are india Muslim film stars who have faith in more then one religion.
There is no law in this world to prove once religion.if a a person says he is muslim means he is muslim and he should be accepted as muslim irrespect of his religion.
After death of prophet, QURAN remain same as it is but ISLAM changed in many shaps.Muslims fabricated ISLAM as per their choices.To day there are many sects in ISLAM and Muslims are free to creat more and more sects.Mumeens have no sects and strict to QURAN only.As per Quran ,only Quran is there for our the guidance
As per QURAN Muslims are not suppose to come in the ways of any region.Muscle power should never be used to force others to convert one,s religion.
If a person ,people and group of people come in the way of worship to ALLAH then stop them for their this act called jihad.there is no other definition of jihad in QURAN.Killing of innocents is the biggest crime in QURAN.
Mumeens don’t expect and ask for any help, assistance from any source other then ALLAH.Mumeens are fully devoted to ALLAH only and follow QURAN.There are two billion muslims but only mumeens read ,understand and follow QURAN .Mumeens are faithfull to their motherland as per teaching of QURAN and follow rules of the land.There is no sense or meaning of any mercy to show to Mumeens because they are concerens to ALLAH and well protected by ALLAH.
Quran is only book in the world read widely and repeatedly and Quran is same as it is since its origin without any change.Quran is only book in this world that every human being cannot read.Quran is the only book protected by ALLAH.
Solution of all the problems of this world is Quran.To trace unfairs in Quran is a crime.
Quran is not for every human being but is only for those who have fears of ALLAH.
It is biggest mistake of all muslims not to take advantage of Quran.
To know Islam read,understand and follow Quran.
