Yawning When Someone Is Praying (Salat) ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain one more problem that is usually done by someone who is praying. Yup! The problem I mean is yawning. Yawning is one of the activities usually carried out by someone. The causes vary, because they are sleepy, too full, lazy, and so on. In Islamic teachings, there is a special discussion about that. The question is, is that okay?

As usual! Before I answer the question above, I will quote one hadith related to yawning. Pay attention!

Hadith About Yawning During Prayer (Salat)

The hadith About yawning during prayer (Salat) that I mean is as follows:

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ ؛ التَّثَاؤُبُ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ ، فَإِذَا تَثَاءَبَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَكْظِمْ مَا اسْتَطَاعَ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ وَالتِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallaahu anhu, that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Yawning is an act of Satan. If one of you yawns, then let him cover it as best he can.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim and at-Tirmidhi.

There are some important things related to the hadith above that we need to know;

One; The hadith explains, that we must stay away from deeds that Satan likes, such as yawning, getting drunk, and so on.

Two; The hadith explains, that we must cover our mouths when we yawn.

Three; If someone yawns when he is praying, it can eliminate solemn in prayer.
