05 – Prophetic Habits – Staying Active – Shaykh Irshaad Sedick

The Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace) and his Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) were naturally physically fit. Getting around meant covering long distances by foot, horseback, or camel. Society was predominantly agricultural, wherein men hunted and farmed food to survive. Unlike contemporary lifestyles, in the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), there were hardly any useless distractions and recreations that cultivated laziness and time-wasting. Today in the 21st century, many distractions and forms of entertainment consume us, encourage laziness and induce ill health. Staying active, however, is part of the Sunna, and this episode identifies, analyzes, and facilitates staying active with practical advice and motivation to do so. Catch up on previous episodes here.
