When he sneezes he receives a call from his wife
Fatwa No: 90352

Question

I have quite a peculiar enquiry about sneezing. Although it might sound a bit strange, I believe it is quite an amazing experience that I'm having and I'd like your opinion on this. I got married recently, me and my wife love each other very much, all praise and thanks to Almighty Allaah.
Now, whenever I am away from my wife and when she thinks about me I sneeze (usually twice) and very soon after I get a call from her.
For example, I went away on business for a week and I found that this happened on many occasions at various times of the day. At first I thought it was just a coincidence but after several experiences (more than 10) I have started to feel that there is more to it than this. I experience this at any time of the day whenever I am away from her (i.e. if at work) and 90% of the time she usually calls me on the phone telling me that she was thinking about me.
Please advise as I am eager to know whether there is any Islamic/spiritual explanation of this.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

We do not know any evidence in the Quran or the Sunnah of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) which suggests that if a person sneezes, it means that someone has mentioned him, and we do not have any explanation for this matter.
