Health related benefits in performing Salat
First of all we should not think a bit that we
should pray as it is good for our health. Almighty ALLAH has created us only to Worship him. Here, the aim for giving the
point is to understand the fact that if we are completely islamic (strong follower of holy Qur'an and Sunnah), there
is hardly chance of getting any diseases (Insha ALLAH).
In fact, in addition to its being a kind of
worship that includes submission, veneration, and peacefulness, Salat (Islamic Prayer) increases efficiency of the human heart
and blood circulation in the human boy. Here, we shall talk about Salat from a very strict perspective, namely its relationship
with the human body and health.
In fact, diseases of the vertebral column
are very rare among Muslims who observe Salat, which includes such movements as bowing, prostrating, and standing up, which
very useful to the vertebral column. All kinds of Arthritis are also rare among Muslims who observe Salat.
Also, varices (Abnormally enlarged or twisted
blood vessel or lymphatic vessel) and deep vein clots are rare among Muslims, and so is vascular congestion in the pelvis,
which causes hemorrhoids and uterus hemorrhage (The flow of blood from a ruptured blood vessel).
Difficulties in breathing
is reduced : Difficulties in breathing, which are caused by increase of Carbon Dioxide in the lungs, are also rare
among Muslims, because compulsory exhalation caused by bowing and prostration activates the heart and lungs.

most common form of senility, where people experience signs of senility or memory problems such as difficulty remembering
past events (especially the more recent ones) as well as learning new things.) are also uncommon
among Muslims, because prostration causes more blood to flow into the brain and prevents such diseases that are caused by
deficiency of blood in the brain. Therefore, prostration forces more blood to flow into blood vessels of the head by the force
of gravity. In this context, Allah’s Messenger, (PBUH), used to bid Bilal, the venerable Companion, may Allah be pleased
with him, “O Bilal! Call (people) to Salat (Islamic Prayer)! Relieve
us with it!” [Narrated by Abu Dawood (4985) and Ahmad (23137)] This is because Salat
(Islamic Prayer) causes both physical and spiritual comfort.
In fact, a Divine Command of Allah’s
is far too Great and Wise to be justified by one single vindication or benefit. The good things underlying Allah’s Most
Wise Divine Commands are innumerable.
An experiment carried
out by some scientists showed that when the head is lowered downwards, blood gathers therein and pressure on arteries increases.
But when the head is then suddenly raised up, the pressure decreases. This rise and fall of pressure makes blood vessel more
flexible. This means that a person whose blood vessels are flexible can bear 23 degrees of pressure, while a person who does
not perform Salat (Islamic Prayer) cannot bear even 18 degrees of pressure, the blood vessels of his brain will be torn out
at such degree of pressure, and he will have a brain failure.
Uterus overturn, which is common among women,
is treated by special exercises that resemble greatly movements done while performing Salat (Islamic Prayer).
Beyond a shadow of doubt Allah’s Divine
Commands embrace innumerable benefits to mankind. Yes, indeed! They are from the Creator, from the Maker, Who created mankind!
They are from the All-Aware, Who knows what is good or harmful to mankind!
To get up before sunrise in order to perform
the Dawn Prayer and then to get exposed to ultraviolet rays is something that is good for man’s health and entails his
Lord’s Good Pleasure.
Possibilities of cancerous
tumors is less: Most up-to-date medical discoveries show that cancerous tumors are caused by deficiency
of man’s immunity due to psychic stress, which can be removed only by one thing, namely Islamic Monotheism (Belief in a single God).
To wrap up, you can stand up everywhere
and declare: “Faith is health!” If you believe that Allah, Alone, is the Disposer, the All-Wise, the All-Knowing,
the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, and Powerful over all things, if you see only one Hand that has control over the whole
universe, you feel comfortable and secure, you get rid of psychic stress, and you system of immunity gets stronger. This is
because random growth of cells, which is called “Cancer”, is caused by efficiency of immunity, which, in turn,
comes from psychic stress, which can be removed by one single thing, namely Islamic Monotheism. That is why it has been rightly
said: “Mankind can learn nothing better than Islamic Monotheism.” To the same effect, Allah, Most Gracious, says,
“So, do not invoke with Allah another god lest you should be among those who are tormented.” [XXVI; 213]

Use of honey: (Stomach pain is cured)
A man came to the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and said, "My brother
has some abdominal trouble." The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said to him "Let him drink honey."
The man came for the second time and the Prophet said to him, 'Let him drink honey." He came for the third time and the Prophet
said, "Let him drink honey." He returned again and said, "I have done that ' The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) then
said, "Allah has said the truth, but your brother's abdomen has told a lie. Let him drink honey." So he made him drink honey
and he was cured.
