On Sneezing and Yawning (235)
It is reported that the Prophet said: "If one of you sneezes let him say:Al-hamdu lil-lãhi
and let his brother or companion say to him: Yarhamuka 'allahu(241)
then if he says Yarhamuka 'allahu
, let him say:Yahdeekumu 'allãhu wayuslih bãlakumu(242)
and in one narration: Al-hamdu lil-lãhi `alã kulli hãlin(243)

(241) May Allah have mercy on you.

(242) May Allah guide you and better your affairs.

(243) All praise is to Allah upon all circumstances.
