Saying وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَكُمْ After يَهْدِيكُمُ اللَّهُ


I have called in regarding a question about sneezing. When replying with Yahdikumullah, are you allowed to add Wa Yuslih Balakum?

Some Ullamah say it is fine to add this on, but some say it is not Sunnah to include it.


It is Sunnah to add the words Wa Yuslihubaalakum.
