:salamext:


I think this one originated from the Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him):

Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Allah loves sneezing and hates yawning. When one of you sneezes and praises Allah Almighty, it is a duty for every Muslim who hears him to say to him, 'May Allah have mercy on you.'

Yawning comes from Shaytan. When one of you yawns, he should control it as much as possible. When one of you yawns, Shaytan laughs at him."

Jazak Allah for sharing these stuff....it's long yes, but interesting.

'People say “Bless you” when you sneeze because when you sneeze, your heart stops for a millisecond.' When I told my friends this one, they never believed me. But yet they still say 'bless you' when someone sneezes
