Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning

[Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 8, Book 73, Number 240]

Narrated Anas bin Malik (Radi Allah Anhu) : Two men sneezed before the Prophet Muhammad (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam). Allah’s Messenger (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) said to one of them, “May Allah bestow his mercy on you”, but he did not say that to other. On being asked (why), the Prophet (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) said, “That one praised Allah (at the time of sneezing), while the other did not praise Allah.”

[Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 8, Book 73, Number 242]

Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi Allah Anhu) : The Prophet Muhammad (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) said, “Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning, so if someone sneezes and then praises Allah, then it is obligatory on every Muslim who heard him, to say: ‘May Allah be merciful to you (Yar-hamukallah)’. But as regards yawning, it is from Satan, so one must try one’s best to sop it as much as possible. Because if anyone of you yawns the Satan laughs at him.”
