Question # : 36056


In a hadith I heard that when the person sneezes Allah turns happy on him and when a person yawns Satan turns to be happy on him.
From this hadith can I predict that when Allah is happy from any person he makes him sneeze and when he is not he makes him yawn, because both the actions are natural (done by Allah) no human being does it by self.

(Fatwa: 193/193/M=1433)

Almighty Allah is the Creator of all actions. The meaning of hadith which you explained is not right. Sneezing and yawning is not the proof of Allah's pleasure or wrath. Rather good things are attributed towards Allah while bad things towards Satan. Since after sneezing one feels a kind of relaxation and it leads towards Almighty Allah's obedience; hence it was attributed towards Allah while yawning causes laziness and inattentiveness in worship that pleases Satan; hence it was attributed towards Satan.
