Question

Assalamu Alaykum
If someone Praying in congregation
sneezes and says Alhamdulillah, do we
say Yarhamuk Allah? knowing that a
response to the one sho sneezes is
obligatory? Jazaakum Allahu Khayr

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His Slave
and Messenger.

It is not permissible for the Muslim to
say “Yarhamukallaah” (i.e. may Allah
have mercy upon you) to the sneezer
during prayer, and whoever does this
deliberately while aware of the ruling,
his prayer is invalid. That is because
saying “Yarhamukallaah” to the sneezer
involves talking with a human and when
this happens deliberately while the
praying person is aware of the
prohibition, it invalidates his prayer.
Once a the companion, Mu‘aawiyah ibn
Al-Hakam As-Sulami, may Allah be
pleased with him, said “Yarhamukallaah”
to a sneezer during the prayer, the
Prophet said to him: "People's talk
is not permissible during prayer
because it involves only Tasbeeh,
Takbeer and recitation of the
Quran." [Muslim] However, the Prophet
did not order him to repeat the
prayer because he was unaware of the
ruling.

Allah Knows best.
