For each and every Muslim in this world, the best way to live our life is the way our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) has taught us in the form of Sunnah.
Sunnah is a set of habits and traits that the last Prophet of Allah Muhammad (P.B.U.H) used to abide by throughout his life. The very same guidelines are like an array of light for all Muslims in this world that direct us towards the righteous path and make us better humans and Muslims.
Sunnah is the best way to ensure a happy and satisfactory mortal life as well a successful afterlife.
Just like every guideline and instructions taught by Islam, Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) is very logical and has a scientific reasoning behind it. Let’s have a look at these 5 Sunnah and their science-backed benefits for our overall health.
Through the whole course of his prophethood, our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) set himself on a strict routine of going to bed early at night and rising up early for Fajr prayers.
Scientific explanation: Early risers are proven to be more productive and waking up early helps promote mental wellness.
Our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) had an amazing orally healthy habit of using Miswak daily as soon as he woke up.
Scientific explanation: Miswak is still a better alternative than so called modern toothbrushes and toothpaste. Miswak is proven to help eliminate plagues, gum soreness, tooth decay and maintain long-lasting fresh breath.
Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) maintained a few sunah eating habits including slowly eating. He ate patiently all his life and urged the fellow Muslims to do the same.
Scientific explanation: It takes around 20 minutes for our brain to realize that our stomach is full, if we eat fast it may lead to overeating. Eating slowly helps us eat less food and improves digestion.
Cupping also called Hijama in Islam, is a great way of internal healing that our holy prophet (P.B.U.H) adapted to frequently.
Scientific explanation: Cupping is one of the best ways to flush out hazardous toxins out of our bodies. It is also proven to be effective with fertility problems, migraine, and joint pains.
Drinking water while sitting
Our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) urged all the Muslims to drink while sitting instead of standing and himself abided by this rule whole his life.
Scientific explanation: If you drink water standing up, the water reaches less than the half of your body. On the other hand, if you drink water sitting down, it reaches every part of your body which is greatly beneficial for our health.
