Islamic Fitness & Self-Improvement thread Anonymous 05/01/2020 (Fri) 04:24:50 ID: 7a6f42 No.6
The strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. (Sahih Muslim 2664) It is encouraged by the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to exercise, maintain physical health and a strong body. The Prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions (may Allah be pleased with them) were skilled in the arts of running and fighting, and they were extremely physically tough. Therefore this thread is intended to exchange tips, experiences and information regarding the topics of health, diet, fitness and exercise.
Quick
Are there any self-improvement guides that are strictly from Islamic sources? Especially ones that are based on the Quran and Ahadith. It should be the way to go, since Allah did say in the Quran : >And whoever desires other than Islam as their Deen (way of life) - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. [3:85]
>>37 I don't believe it's appropriate to look for diet and exercise advice in the Qur'an. In the Sunnah however we find multiple stories of the Prophet's (peace and blessings be upon him) great physical strength as well as some of his advice. Narrated 'Ali (r): “When he (s) walked, because of the speed and force of the legs, it seemed as if he was descending from a high place.” (Tirmidhi) Narrated Abu Huraira (r), “I did not see anyone walk faster than him (s), as is the earth folded for him. A few moments ago he would be here, and then there. We found it difficult to keep pace when we walked with him and he walked at his normal pace.” (Tirmidhi) Narrated Hazrat Ibn Umar (r): The Prophet (s) said ”Teach your children swimming, archery and horse riding”. So these kinds of sports are the ones he (s) recommended to the Ummah, meaning they are the best.
