The Ultimate Workout !

We’re living in a time where people are so focused on sustaining their bodies. We do whatever we can to be in the best physical shape, spending hours working out at the gym, pumping our bodies full of all sorts of vitamins and supplements and some even undergo plastic surgery to look ‘perfect’.

With all this focus on our physical being, do we ever stop to have a workout session on our souls?

Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullah] said: “Remembrance [of Allah] is to the heart what water is to the fish. And what is the state of a fish that leaves the water?” 

Worship of Allah and turning to Him alone in times of ease and hardship is the nourishment of the heart, it’s what keeps it pumping beyond just the physical sphere. So just as many hours that you spend working out, or checking yourself in the mirror, make sure you are checking on your soul too, and turning to Allah to keep it nourished.

With best wishes to see you succeed at the highest level,
