Having Healthy Posture Is Islamic

Islam comes from the Arabic root word “salama”. It denotes peace, security, safety as it does submission and surrender to God. To achieve this safety and wellbeing, Shari’ah encourages you to have both good mind and body.

Being the complete way of life, Islam stresses the importance of maintaining good health. It considers health as a basic human right. “Your body has a right over you”, mentioned in one of the prophetic hadiths.

Health is a state of total physical, mental and social well-being. It’s important in order to maintain the quality of life that we can enjoy at our best performance.

A Muslim’s quest for good health is in conformity with his salvation in the life hereafter, as much as for the enjoyment of life in this world. For a Muslim, health consciousness is God consciousness.

Abu Hurairah narrated that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “A strong believer is better and dearer to Allah than a weak one, and both are good. Keenly pursue what benefits you, seek help only from Allah, and do not give up. If something befalls you, do not say, ‘If only I had done otherwise,’ but rather say, ‘Allah so determined and did as He willed,’ for ‘if only’ opens the door to Satan’s work.” (Al-Bukhari).
