Ramadan - Episode 16


In The Shade of Ramadan - Season 2


Episode 16 - Physically Fit

~ Br. Omar Abdala talks about being physically fit


SURAH Al-Ahqaf (46:15)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

"And We have enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents. His mother bears him with hardship And she brings him forth with hardship, and the bearing of him, and the weaning of him is thirty months, till when he attains full strength and reaches forty years, he says: "My Lord! Grant me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favour which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds, such as please You, and make my off-spring good. Truly, I have turned to You in repentance, and truly, I am one of the Muslims (submitting to Your Will)." (46:15)


Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

A man asked Messenger of Allah (PBUH), "Which act in Islam is the best?''

He (PBUH) replied, "To feed (the poor and the needy) and to greet those whom you know and those you do not know.''

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


The provision of food to somebody may signify almsgiving or offering or an act of hospitality. It may also be interpreted as meeting the want of a needy person: If he is hungry, he should be fed; if he lacks clothes, the same should be given to him; if he is sick, medicine should be provided to him; and if he is under debt, he should be helped to pay off his debt, and so on.

As for greeting (saying `As-Salamu `alaikum'), it is meant to be popularized because it brings hearts closer to each other and is an antidote to hatred and hostility.
