In this episode Shaykh Yahya Rhodus explains some of the etiquettes around sneezing as taught by the Prophet Muhammad. Shaykh Yahya further highlights the invocations that one says upon sneezing, and the invocations that are told to the one sneezing and the appropriate response. He explains the significance of upholding such etiquettes to bring meaning to seemingly mundane events, and use these events as opportunities to draw close to God.

The Content of Character is a remarkable collection of sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. Chosen by the scholar, Shaykh Al-Amin Ali Mazrui and translated by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, this book was published to great critical acclaim.

Shaykh Al-Amin intended to show that progress among Muslims required not the abandonment of Islam but the recovery of the original spirit of Islamic enlightenment.

In this podcast series for SeekersHub, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus does a commentary on these concise and yet comprehensive sayings, with a special focus on character-building, morals, good manners and ethics.
