It's Hard to Yawn in Muslim

There are so many Muslims in Baguio. The last time I checked (two years ago), there were 5,000 of them, 95 percent are Maranaos. Now there could be more. Because without them, we can not watch live versions of Swan Lake, Rent, Carole King, Bob Dylan, Enrico Caruso and a whole lot more, we should be sensitive about them. Because sometimes we bore them, we should know the etiquette of yawning, Muslim style. Harder than I thought.

When one sneezes, one should say ALHAMDULILLAH. (Bukhari)
In reply to this, one who hears (the person who has sneezed say Alhamdulillah) should say YARHAMU KALLAH. (Bukhari)
The person who has sneezed must reply by saying: YAHDEE KUMULLAHU WAYUSLIHU BAALAKUM. (Bukhari)
Whenever our beloved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam sneezed, he should cover his face with his hands or with a piece of cloth, so that the sound of the sneeze could not be heard too loudly. (Tirmidhi)
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said: "When one yawns, cover the mouth with the hand, as the full opening of the mouth allows the Shaytaan to enter the mouth. (Muslim)
It is narrated in a Hadith, that when one yawns, one should not make the sound 'Haa', as this causes the Shaytaan to laugh. (Muslim)
