• if • you • yawn • during • prayer •

Abu Muhammad Abdullah Ibnu Abee Zaid Al-qayraawanee [1] was asked concerning a person who felt it necessary to yawn during the prayer [Salaah]. Was [it permissible] for him to cover his mouth with his hand whilst yawing in Salaah?

He answered: “Yes, there is no problem with that.”
