SUPER DAD!

Assalamu-alaykum, Brothers and Sisters!

Man! I’m knackered. I got up early and came downstairs.

My dad was in the living room doing press-ups like Rocky. He was sweating so much that there was a puddle on the ground.

I said, “Dad, I didn't know you could do that!”

My dad said, “Its easy, why don’t you try? It’s not as hard as you think!”

I thought, “ I might as well do a few hundred as well!”

When I started, I got to two and my arms began to wobble and I had to stop.

My dad said, “You are so unfit! Don’t you know it’s a sunnah of our Prophet (pbuh) to look after your body!”

Now I get up early with my dad to do exercise. Guess what? Now I can easily do ten press-ups! Penpal

OUR BODIES

We are so busy that we have no time to do anything. We have to do our homework and go to mosque. The rest of our time is spent resting and playing computer games.

We should manage our time so that along with our regular activities we have some time to exercise our bodies. Our bodies are a trust from Allah which means that we must look after them.

Our body has two aspects; the spiritual and the physical. The spiritual side is looked after by performing Salah, reading Qur’an and doing zikr.

The physical side of our body is looked after by sleeping and waking up on time; by eating correctly and by exercising.

On the Day of Judgement Allah will ask us about our bodies so make sure we always look after them.

THE RACE

When the Prophet (pbuh) was only twenty five years old, he married the lady Khadija. Khadija was a widow and she was impressed by Muhammad (pbuh) who was a very honest and gentle person.

They had a loving relationship and they looked after each other and their small family. After Muhammad (pbuh) was 40 years old, the angel Jibrael came to him and delivered the first five verses of the Holy Qu’ran. Muhammad (pbuh) had been given prophethood and was given the responsibility to deliver the message of Allah to the whole world.

The Makkans were not happy and would make life difficult for the Muslims. Through these periods of hardship, Khadija supported the Prophet (pbuh) and indeed became a very pious and devoted Muslim. Despite all the difficulties they continued to live their lives as good Muslims.

After many years of hardship, Khadija passed away and Muhammad (pbuh) was very sad. He later married Aisha (ra) who was younger than the Prophet and was very intelligent. She was also the daughter of another great Sahabi, Abu Bakr.

One day our Prophet (pbuh) and Aisha (ra) were walking and they decided to have a race. They agreed to run to a certain place and soon began the race. Aisha (ra) was fit and ran very quickly winning the race.

A few years later, the Prophet (pbuh) and Aisha (ra) decided to have another race and again they decided to run to a certain spot. This time Aisha was not as quick and our Prophet (pbuh) won the race.

All the Muslims used to look after their bodies because they knew it was a trust from Allah. Even the Prophet (pbuh) and Aisha would race with each other whilst these days people are reluctant to even go to the shops walking.

PENPAL REFLECTION

Assalamu-alaykum, whenever we think about exercise, we get scared because we imagine running miles, lifting huge weights and eating weird food. However, walking to school and mosque, playing outside, playing sports and being active are also important exercises. PP

FOOTSTEPS

The Prophet (pbuh) looked after his body and told the Sahabah to as well.
