Importance of Health in Islam and the Prophetic Medicine, by Abu Khadeejah

The scholars such as Ibnul-Qayyim, Adh-Dhahabee and Imaam as-Sa’dee used to say that from the greatest of all blessings that Allaah has bestowed upon a person is good health. These days people quite often take for granted the good health that Allaah bestows upon them. They are therefore shaken and shocked when a chronic illness strikes, and only then will they ponder about the blessings of good health, and only then will they look back and think about what they have been eating and putting into their bodies. We are living in times where we face an epidemic of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cancers, heart disease, etc, even in children. How do we face these challenges in light of Islaam?

The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam) said: “There are two blessings that many of the people lose out on, good health and free time.” Prevention of illnesses by maintaining good health through diet is tremendous means provided by the Creator, Allaah.

We as Muslims need to be aware of that which is good and that which is harmful in foods. We must recognise the harms of processed foods, chemicals, and sugar in our diet. We need to turn to a greener diet, a more raw and natural diet, We also need to know how to remedy illnesses in the best possible manner. This lecture by Abu Khadeejah is an excellent insight into this tremendous subject matter. Listen in and benefit.
