    RAMADAN HEALTH GUIDE

    RAMADAN HEALTH GUIDE


    FASTING is complete abstinence from food and drink between dawn and dusk. All those who are ill or frail, pregnant or menstruating women, breastfeeding mothers and travellers are exempted. They are required to make up the number of days missed at a later date or give a fixed sum to charity.


    Health is the key to happiness, and what we consume
    directly affects our health. Islam encourages Muslims to
    ensure that they are mindful of their health. The blessed
    Prophet said: “Take advantage of the good health before
    illnesses afflict you”. He also encouraged Muslims to try
    their best to take up a healthy living lifestyle that includes
    a balanced diet, regular mental and physical exercise and
    a balance between material and spiritual needs.
    The Health Survey for England 2004 (Department of
    Health, 2005) has shown poor health and lifestyle choices
    of the Asian community in general and Muslim community
    in particular. Compared with the 24% of men in the
    general population who smoked cigarettes, higher levels
    of cigarette smoking were reported by Bangladeshi men
    (40%). South Asian men and women had the highest
    rates of diabetes. Pakistanis and Bangladeshis were up
    to five times more likely than the general population to
    have diabetes, and Indian men and women were up to
    three times as likely. Some 33% of Pakistani men and
    women eat the recommended five or more portions of
    fruit and vegetables a day, compared with 28% of Bangladeshi men
    and women.The month of Ramadan is a great opportunity to focus on
    bringing back a balanced and healthy lifestyle in your life.
    Through fasting you begin to learn how to manage your
    eating habits, how to improve self-control and discipline.
    This month requires you to give the stomach a break, and
    by doing so you are able to break down and expel the
    accumulated toxins from your body.
