Maqasid Syariah In Taking Care Of Our Health

Over the past few weeks, the khatib has been reminding us how we can preserve the five important aspects of our lives: religion or deen, intellect, wealth, life and lineage.

  

  • It was once narrated by Anas r.a. that a man once asked Rasulullah s.a.w.: “What is the best doa?” Rasulullah replied: “Ask from your Lord for forgiveness and health in this world and the hereafter”. I would like to call upon all of us here to engage in some self-reflection or muhasabah. Why did Nabi s.a.w. highlight the importance of asking from Allah for good physical and spiritual health? Why did Rasulullah remind us about the nikmat of good health? This is because, with good health we can continue to increase our opportunities to contribute in the path of Allah.
  • So, let us all strive to maintain good health. We need to change our lifestyle if we currently have an unhealthy one. Ensure that we have a balanced diet. If we smoke, strengthen the resolve to stop smoking or at least reduce the bad habit.
