FOURTH RIGHT OF A MUSLIM

The fourth right of a Muslim is that when his Muslim brother sneezes, he should say, “Yarhamuk Allah” (May Allah have mercy on you).

Sneezing Liked By Allah Ta’ala

Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “Undoubtedly, Allah Ta’ala likes sneezing and dislikes yawning. When one of you sneezes, he should say, ‘Alhamdu Lillah’, and all those who hear it should reply, ‘Yarhamuk Allah.’ Yawning is from Satan. When one of you feels like yawning, he should do his utmost to stop it as Satan laughs when any of you yawns.” (Bukhari Shareef vol 2 page 919)

What to Say If One Sneezes?

Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that the Beloved Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “When one of you sneezes, let him say, "Alhamdu Lillah" (Praise be to Allah), and let his brother or companion say to him, "Yarhamuk Allah" (May Allah have mercy on you). If he says, "Yarhamuk Allah", then let [the sneezer] say, "Yahdeekum Allah wa Yuslihu Baalakum" (May Allah guide you and rectify your condition). (Bukhari Shareef vol 2 page 919)

Reply to One Who Says Alhamdu Lillah

Hazrat Abu Musa Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “Only reply to the one who sneezes and says ‘Alhamdu Lillah.’ Do not reply to one who sneezes and does not praise Allah Ta’ala.” (Muslim Shareef vol 2 page 413)

What to Do When One Sneezes?

Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu reports that when Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) would sneeze, he would cover his blessed face with his blessed hand or a cloth and he would sneeze quietly. (Tirmidhi vol 1 page 103)

Reply for Up to Three Sneezes

Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “Reply to your brother for up to three sneezes. If he sneezes more than three times, then it is a cold.” (Abu Dawood
Shareef vol 2 page 686)

Hazrat ‘Ubais bin Raf’a states that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “Reply up to three times to one who sneezes. If he sneezes more than three times reply if you wish or do not reply.” (Mishkaat Page 406)

Cover Mouth When Yawning

Hazrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “When you yawn, cover your mouth with your hand otherwise Satan enters the mouth.” (Muslim Shareef vol 2 page 413)
