I heard that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would lower his voice when sneezing. Is this correct?



This is correct. Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that when Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would sneeze, he would cover his face with his hand or with his garment and muffle the sound.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2745 and Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4990. Declared authentic by Imam Tirmidhi)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
