Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "When one of you sneezes he should say: `Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah),' and his brother or his companion should say to him: `Yarhamuk-Allah (may Allah have mercy on you).' When he says this he should reply: `Yahdikum-ullah wa yuslihu balakum (may Allah guide you and render sound your state of affairs).''' [Al-Bukhari].

باب استحباب تشميت العاطس إِذَا حمد الله تَعَالَى وكراهة تشميته إذا لَمْ يحمد الله تَعَالَى وبيان آداب التشميت والعطاس والتثاؤب

879- وعنه، عن النبيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، قَالَ: ((إِذَا عَطَسَ أحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَقُلْ: الحَمْدُ للهِ، وَلْيَقُلْ لَهُ أخُوهُ أَوْ صَاحِبُهُ: يَرْحَمُكَ الله. فإذَا قَالَ لَهُ: يَرْحَمُكَ اللهُ، فَليَقُلْ: يَهْدِيكُمُ اللهُ وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَكُمْ)) رواه البخاري.

أخرجه: البخاري 8/61 (6224).

This Hadith teaches Muslims to have good wishes for one another and to return good for good. This reciprocity increases mutual love and results in the unity, peace and dynamism of the Muslim society. May we act upon the golden principles of our religion!
