Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Yawning is from the Shaytaan. If any of you feels the urge to yawn, let him resist it as much as possible, for if any of you says ‘Ha’ (makes a noise when yawning), the Shaytaan laughs." (al-Bukhari no. 3289)

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Allaah loves the act of sneezing and dislikes the act of yawning. If any one of you sneezes and praises Allaah, it is a duty on every Muslim who hears him to say ‘Yarhamak Allaah (May Allaah have mercy on you).’ As for yawning, it is from Shaytaan, so if any of you feels the urge to yawn, let him resist it as much as he can, for if any of you yawns, the Shaytaan laughs at him." (al-Bukhari, Fath, no. 6226)

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Yawning is from Shaytaan, so if any of you feels the urge to yawn, let him resist it as much as he can." (Muslim, 2994)

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Sneezing is from Allaah and yawning is from Shaytaan. If any of you yawns, let him place his hand over his mouth. If he says ‘Ah, ah!’ (makes a noise when yawning), Shaytaan laughs from inside him." Abu ‘Eesaa said: this is a saheeh hasan hadeeth. (Sunan al-Tirmidhi, no. 2746; classified as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 4130)

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Allah loves sneezing and dislikes yawning. If any one of you sneezes and says ‘Al-hamdu Lillaah,’ it is a duty on everyone who hears him to say ‘Yarhamak Allaah.’ As for yawning, if any one of you feels the urge to yawn, let him resist it as much as he can, and do not say ‘Hah, hah’ (do not make a noise when yawning), for this is from Shaytaan and he laughs at it." Abu ‘Eesaa said: This is a saheeh hadeeth. (Sunan al-Tirmidhi, 2747)

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "If any of you yawns, let him cover his mouth lest the Shaytaan enter." (Abu Dawud)

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri reported that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "If any of you feels the urge to yawn, let him resist it as much as possible, lest the Shaytaan enter his mouth." (Imaam Ahmad)

According to another report also narrated by Imaam Ahmad, Shaytaan enters when a person yawns. (Saheeh al-Jaami’, 426)

From the reports quoted above, we may summarize the following:

1. That Shaytaan prompts the human to yawn, which is indicative of laziness and sluggishness.
2. That Shaytaan enters the person who yawns.
3. That Shaytaan laughs at man and makes fun of his ugly appearance when he is in that state.

And Allaah knows best.

yes, most of the time. when we open our mouth in yawning movement, the temporomandibular joints slide to its' gingilimus position (sliding), and exert some force toward our facial muscles, and put sufficient pressure toward our lacrimal sac. that what happens i guess :p

Yawning is bad manners and should be avoided as much as possible. It is a sign of laziness. The sound you make while yawning is really Satan laughing. So try to supress it as much as possible, and cover your mouth if you feel the urge. Jazak Allah khair.

Salaam, Insha'Allah you can prevent your yawning as i try too. I read in Bukari that Sahitan smiles upon the one who yawns and Allah loves the one who sneeze. So if you can not stop your yawn, make sure you cover your mouth so Shaitan want enter.

Masha'Allah

Yes it is common courtesy to cover you mouth but also recommend by our prophet (saw) to do so for the reasons of not being able to surpress so cover your mout and don't make a "ah" sound so Shaitan can not come in or laugh at you.

Allah and his messenger knows best!

Yes my eyes water too, like :laugh: .
I heard about this a long time back but hadnt read Ahadith about it. I know I can be really lazy sometimes, and yawning is hard to avoid, so I usually say Astaghfirullah. A lot of people yawn make a loud noise then say Allah u Akbar.

Is it wrong to say something like that when yawning?

Yes, my eyes water sometimes. The movement compresses the tear glands. Same reason why people's eyes water if they laugh hard enough.

And yes, obviously, cover your mouth when you yawn. Nobody wants to see your wriggling epiglottis.

Why do we yawn in Ramadaan when the devils have been chained up? And is the transmission of television pictures haraam?

Question:
It is well known that the devils are chained up in Ramadaan and that yawning comes from the Shaytaan, so why do we yawn in Ramadaan?
And it is known that making images of human beings is haraam, so is the transmission of television pictures regarded as haraam?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Al-Bukhaari (6226) and Muslim (2994) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning, so if one of you sneezes and praises Allaah (by saying Al-hamdu Lillaah), it is a duty upon every Muslim who hears him to say to him, Yarhamuk Allaah (may Allaah have mercy on you). With regard to yawning, it is from the Shaytaan so if one of you feels like yawning, let him suppress it as much as he can, for if one of you yawns the Shaytaan laughs at him.

Concerning the meaning of that, it was said that the Shaytaan likes to see a person yawning because it makes him look different and so he laughs at him. It does not mean that the Shaytaan is the one who makes him yawn. And it was said that yawning is attributed to the Shaytaan because yawning comes from fullness of the stomach, which generates laziness, which happens under the influence of the Shaytaan. Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: Yawning is attributed to the Shaytaan because it promotes whims and desires, because it stems from heaviness of the body, excessive relaxation and fullness of the stomach. So what is meant is a warning against the thing that leads to that, which is eating too much.

Al-Manaawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: It is attributed to him because he is the one who calls for giving the self its share of desires. What is meant here is to warn against the things that lead to that, which is eating too much and eating one's fill, which makes the body feel too heavy and tired to do acts of worship.

There should be no confusion stemming from the fact that people yawn during Ramadaan even though the devils are chained up at that time, because what is meant by saying that it is from the Shaytaan is that he likes it. The fact that he likes it and approves of it does not mean that he is not chained, rather that could happen even if he was chained.

Based on the view that this is caused by the influence of the Shaytaan, either directly or indirectly, it was said that the ones who are chained up during Ramadaan are the maarids among the devils (i.e., the strong evil ones) only, and that others remain as they are, so yawning may be caused by those who are not chained up.

But based on the view that what is meant by the chaining up of the devils is that their influence on the believers is less during that month than in other months, perhaps yawning results from the little influence that they are still able to have during Ramadaan.
