The Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw said, there are two blessings of Allah if man does not care for them it is his loss, one is health, the other is time of leisure. (Bukhari)


Health includes not only diet and exercise but also our overall mental and spiritual well being. Oftentimes, with work, family and Jamaat responsibilities, we find little time to focus on our health or set realistic attainable goals. Let us make sure that we make our health a major priority while always keeping in mind that the strongest medicine and healing can be found in our faith.


"And when I fall ill, it is He who restores me to health." (26:81)


The verse means that we fall ill because of our own weaknesses and mistakes, and health is bestowed upon us as a blessing from Allah.
