Preserving The Life and Health of The Child

Islam’s attention to preserving the life and health of the child amounts to attending to the strength of the Muslims as a whole.


This is how able-bodied and healthy individuals who are full of life and activity are raised. A healthy body not only contributes to the soundness of one’s thinking, but also makes it possible for the individual to interact with life and fellow humans. Islam has provided rules for the Muslim individual and a well-organized scheme of life to prevent ill health.


Second to Islam itself, good health is the best bounty Allah may bestow upon any person. A Muslim simply cannot act properly and perform his duties towards his Lord without good health.


 Al-Tirmidhi reported on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, said: “Of all the bounties bestowed upon him, the first thing the servant of Allah will be asked about on the Day of Judgment is that it will be said to him (by Allah) did I not give you a healthy body.“


In another Hadith reported by Al-Tirmidhi it was said, “The Messenger of Allah, Peace Be Upon Him, did not like anything more to be asked for than good health.”
