Answer

Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah (rahimahullah) has recorded the following narration with a reliable chain [mursalan] from the Tabi’i:

Yazid ibnul Asamm (rahimahullah) who says, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) never yawned in Salah”

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 8065)

 

Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has cited the following narration recorded by Imam Khattabi wherein Maslamah ibn ‘Abdil Malik (rahimahullah), a Tabi’i, says “No Nabi ever yawned”

(Fathul Bari, under Hadith: 6226)

 

Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) quotes Imam Ibn Sab’ who says:

‘Since yawning is from Shaytan [as recorded in Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6226], Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was protected from this.’

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
