    It's from shaytan.

    Al-Bukhaari (6226) and Muslim (2994) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (r) that the Prophet (saaws) said: “Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning, so if one of you sneezes and praises Allah (by saying Al-hamdu Lillaah), it is a duty upon every Muslim who hears him to say to him, Yarhamuk Allah (may Allah have mercy on you). With regard to yawning, it is from the Shaytan 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.

    Al-Manawi(r) 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.
    Yawning

    And verily for everything that a slave loses there is a substitute, but the one who loses Allah will never find anything to replace Him.”
    [Related by Ibn al-Qayyim in ad-Dâ' wad-Dawâ Fasl 49]

    Re: Yawning

    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)

    Yes, the prophet (saws) close your gaps, i see the shaytan coming thru them. How else does one loose khusoo in salah? all the things you couldn't remember, now you remember them all of a sudden?

    Re: Yawning

    Al-Tirmizi reported a Hadith, and graded it as sound and authentic that Abu Hurairah (Radiya Allahu Anhu) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Sneezing is from Allah, and yawning is from Satan. If anybody amongst yourselves yawns, he has to put his hand on his mouth. And if a person (who yawns) says: Ah, Ah, Satan bursts of laughter on this person. Allah loves sneezing and hates yawning. If a person who yawns says: Ah, Ah, then Satan will laugh from inside this person’s stomach.”

    It is also reported in Saheeh Muslim and Sunan Abu Dawud and Musnad Ahmad that Abu Saeed Al-Khudri said: “The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said that if anybody amongst yourselves yawns, he has to put his hand on his mouth because Satan enters, i.e. from his mouth," as it is reported in the narration of Ahmad. So these Ahadith praise sneezing and disgrace yawning.

    Therefore, it is disliked for a person to yawn deliberately but if he can’t avoid it, then there is no problem.

    However, there is no Hadith from the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) about the legitimacy of seeking refuge from Satan when yawning. But there is no harm in that as it is stated in the Hadith that yawning is from Satan.
