Allah loves sneezing and hates yawning (So does Satan)

Bukhari: 8:73: 245

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah loves sneezing but dislikes yawning; so if anyone of you sneezes and then praises Allah, every Muslim who hears him (praising Allah) has to say Tashmit to him [Tashmit is the following prayer "May Allah show you his mercy]. But as regards yawning, it is from Satan, so if one of you yawns, he should try his best to stop it, for when anyone of you yawns, Satan laughs at him."

1) Why does Allah love sneezing?
a) Is it because fever is from the fire of Hell?
b) Is it because Mohammad's (may peace be upon him) lord was Satan?

2) Why does Allah dislike yawning, and Satan laugh at someone who yawns?
a) Is it because Allah and Satan could be the same?

3) Why do Allah or Satan even care if you sneeze or yawn?
a) Don't either of them have anything better to do than worrying about whether you sneeze or yawn?
b) What is the relevance of either of these actions with respect to morality?
c) What is Muslim morality? (i.e. Mohammad (may peace be upon) could break every single one of the 10 COmmandments and be referred to as the greatest Messenger?)

4) Does Allah use the same reasoning skills when he forbade Muslims not to face the Qibla when they would go to the bathroom?
a) Yet Allah changed his mind on where the Qiblah should be based on Mohammad's (may peace be upon him) desires (which Aisha noted with reference to Allah granting Mohammad's sexual desires "I feel that your Lord hastens in fulfilling your wishes and desires."

Bukhari:V6B60N13 "The Prophet prayed facing Jerusalem but he wished that his Qiblah would be the Ka'aba at Mecca so Allah Revealed a Qur'an. A man who had prayed with him went out and said, 'I swear I have prayed with the Prophet facing Mecca.' Hearing that, they turned their faces to the Ka'aba while they were still bowing. Some men had died before the Qiblah was changed and we did not know what to say about them (whether their prayers toward Jerusalem were accepted or not)."

5) Why was Mohammad (may peace be upon him) embarrassed to ask Allah to reduce the amount of prayers even further that a Muslim must do, at Moses' respect, but not embarrassed about asking Allah to satisfy his carnal and sexual desires, or which way he wanted to face when he wanted to pray?
a) Is it because Allah's Apostle (may peace be un to him) was a man with such sexual restraint where he controlled his sexual urges during the menstration periods of his wives by ordering them to put on izars so he could fondle them through an izar,; and that Allah needed to compromise with his Apostle, (his greatest Messenger) whom he had given the sexual strength of 30 men?
