Answer to Non-Muslim’s Sneez

Abu Musa (RadhiAllahu Anhu) reported:

The Jews used to intentionally sneeze in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam) hoping that he would say to them: يَرْحَمُكَ اللَّهُ YarhamukAllah (may Allah have mercy on you),’ but he (SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam) would respond with: يَهْدِيكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَكُمْ “Yahdikumullahu wa yuslihu balakum (may Allah guide you and render sound your state of affairs).” [Abu Dawud and At- Tirmizi].
