regarding SNEEZING?

But i do have another small question regarding SNEEZING?

If i sneeze in front of  NON-MUSLIM and if he/she tell me “BLESS YOU” do i need to tell them Thank You or just be quite. and if i be quite then i think people will get angry and might say that i m very rude that i am not saying thank you to them…

and other part of my question is that if i see any non-muslims sneeze do i need to say BLESS YOU ? and lets say if i dont say bless you to them…waht if they get mad by me not saying bless you to them….many people tell me bless you, sometimes i say thank you sand sometimes i think i shuld not say thank you

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


There is no religious significance in saying Thank You to a non Muslim. You may say “Thank You”.


And Allah knows best
