Sunnah -7 ( reply to sneeze)

Narrated Abu Ayyub:
that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “When one of you sneezes let him say: ‘Al-Hamdulillahi ‘Ala Kulli Hal (All praise is due to Allah in every circumstance).’ And let the one replying to him say: “Yarhamukallah (May Allah have mercy upon you).’ And let him say to him: ‘Yahdikumullah Wa Yuslihu Balakum (May Allah guide you and rectify your affairs).'”
حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودُ بْنُ غَيْلاَنَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو دَاوُدَ، أَخْبَرَنَا شُعْبَةُ، أَخْبَرَنِي ابْنُ أَبِي لَيْلَى، عَنْ أَخِيهِ، عِيسَى بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي لَيْلَى، عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ إِذَا عَطَسَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَقُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ عَلَى كُلِّ حَالٍ وَلْيَقُلِ الَّذِي يَرُدُّ عَلَيْهِ يَرْحَمُكَ اللَّهُ وَلْيَقُلْ هُوَ يَهْدِيكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَكُمْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

We say alhamdulillah when we sneeze, but do not forget to reply to someone’s sneezing. Say Yarhamukallah. And in reply to it say Yahdikumullah wa yuslihu balakum. It’s a Sunnah. Get used to it.
Salam 🙂
