So Muslims are telling us about Muhammad and his knowledge of medicine and pandemics (even Biden regurgitated a hadith in-order to prove that Muhammad was a wise man and knew his epidemiology!) and there are many Ahadith in the link below about the claim that Allah loves العطس or sneezing and hates التثاءوب or yawning and in a hadith we are told that Muhammad said:

فاذا تثاءب احدكم فليمسك على فيه

This can be rendered as; If one of you yawn then he must cover his mouth.

And now we hear every tablighee and his cousin telling us: This is a miracle and how can a 7th century illiterate Arab provide such wisdom and knowledge that can prevent Covid-19 from spreading alhamdulliah

Notice that Muhammad does not mention that we should cover the nose and even the eyes (glasses) because the nasal mucosa as well as the conjunctivae can be entry points for the virus. I wonder why Muhammad did not mention either one. But, do not expect Tablighees to have an answer.

What they do not tell us is that Muhammad utters this disaster to explain to his followers why they have to cover their mouths when they yawn:

So this is the rest of the hadith: فان الشيطان يدخله

This can be rendered as: (If you yawn then cover your mouth) because Satan will enter your mouth (if you do not cover it)!

So much for Muhammad and his epidemiology!

Never trust the nonsense we keep hearing from Tablighees about the scientific and in this case epidemiology miracles in Islam

Here is the link to all the Ahadith that deal with yawing and sneezing and the above hadith is the last hadith
