Saying Alhamdulillah When Sneezing in Prayer
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “When one of you sneezes, he should say, Alhamdulillah (Praise is to Allah)…” (Al-Bukhari)
It is proven that the Prophet (peace be upon him) denounced someone who said ‘Yarhamuk Allah’ to a man who sneezed whilst praying, then he said to him: “In this prayer nothing of human speech is permitted; for it consists only of glorifying Allah, declaring His greatness, and reciting the Qur’an .” (Abu Dawud)
Everyone has been in a situation where they’ve sneezed during prayer. When this happens, does one say Alhamdulillah? We know saying it comes with great reward. Also those responding to it gain reward. What is the ruling when this happens in prayer? Watch this short video to get the answers and more with Sheikh Yaser Birjas.
