GUIDELINES FOR HEALTH AND FITNESS IN ISLAM

There are specific guidelines for health and fitness in Islam.

Health and Fitness Guide – The definition of physical activity is provided, along with an explanation of its physiological, health, social, and religious advantages. 

Following that, it discusses Islamic prescriptions for several forms of exercise, including jogging, sitting, and standing, as well as prescriptions for participating in sports.

Islam may indeed be a way of life that needs physical effort if Allah should make actions like Salat and the Hajj wajibs, exercise, and other physically demanding pursuits that are permitted by Sharia are so promoted.

Islam places a strong emphasis on moderation—not doing too much or too little—in all facets of life. 

The second half of verse 31 of Surah Al-A’raf states, 

“Eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess.” 

A hadith in Tirmizi further advises Muslims to leave,

“One-third of the belly with food, another third with drink and leave one-third empty for easy breathing.”

There are a variety of techniques for improving health and fitness in Islam.

Muslims must look for their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Our bodies, the most complex machine on the planet, are a gift from God. Rather than mistreating or ignoring them, they should receive the right care. As was previously said, diet, nutrition, and an active lifestyle all contribute significantly to preserving the greatest possible health. Islam emphasizes a simple diet combined with physical exercise.

It is clear from the Holy Qur’an and Ahlul-Bait traditions that a diet high in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits is preferable. In addition, all such foods must be consumed in moderation. Every Muslim should prioritize maintaining good physical health. In addition to extending life, it also has a number of emotional, psychological, and most importantly spiritual benefits. Islam’s perception of a good diet and recreation to attain physical well-being can be deemed as a vehicle for attaining spiritual and moral fitness. Indeed, it may be necessary to remind us that pursuing bodily well-being while really hoping to win Allah’s favor is worship.
