Does the heart stop when sneezing?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

The modern science tells us today that by sneezing your heart does not stops even for less then a second. But since my childhood till today in lots of Islamic lectures i have heard that while sneezing our heart stops. Can you please quote the Quran and Hadith please….


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The heart does not stop when sneezing.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
