Health guidelines from Islam

The Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) recommended adequate sleep. He never deprived himself of sleep nor overslept.  He also advised and practiced  to sleep at the early part of the night, and to wake up early in the morning. Science research shows that going to bed early can help maintain a healthy weight, stay more productive, and avoid serious health problems (such as diabetes, obesity, and heart diseases).

Prayer is one of the five fundamental requirements that a Muslim is obligated to perform. According to a hadith (authentic narrations from the prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P)), the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) has reported to have said, “verily there is a cure in prayer”. There are some physical benefits in prayer, such as : In the beginning of the prayer, we move our hand and shoulder muscles therefore increasing the blood flow towards the torso. The heart in the most important organ in our body. Because it supplies fresh blood to all body tissues, the movements during prayer are a crucial source for exercise in our heart.  Certain positions makes our hips, elbows, knee and wrist joints, and backbone move in a way that forms a relation in our body.
