Welcome to the Health and Fitness (Sehate Jismani) department. Sehate Jismani is an Arabic phrase that translates as the ‘health, wellbeing and fitness of the (human) body’. Hence the Sehate Jismani Department of Lajna Imaillah UK concerns itself with enhancing health and fitness in the mind, body, and spirit of women, girls, and babies.
Islam lays great emphasis upon promoting the wellbeing of the physical aspect of a human. Above is an example from the Holy Quran, the traditions of the Holy Founder of Islam, Muhammad (“Peace and blessings be on Him), and the statement of the Promised Messiah (as).
“Our experience shows that various diets definitely affect the faculties of mind and soul”.
(The Promised Messiah (as))
