(179)

‘When one of you sneezes he should say:

الْحَمْـدُ للهِ.

Alhamdu lillah.

‘All praise if for Allah.’

…and his brother or companion should say to him:

يَرْحَمُـكَ الله.

Yarhamukal-lah.

‘May Allah have mercy upon you.’

…and he (i.e. the one who sneezed) replies back to him:

يَهْـديكُـمُ اللهُ وَيُصْـلِحُ بالَـكُم.

Yahdeekumul-lahu wayuslihu balakum.

‘May Allah guide you and rectify your condition.’
