Health is one of the most precious favours
Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim (died 752 AH rahimahullaah) stated:
“Health is one of the most precious favours Allaah has bestowed upon His servants, the most generous of gifts, the most plentiful of His bounties.
Rather, even more, [good] health is the most precious of favours without exception, so it is fitting that whoever is granted a portion of this fortune that he cherishes it, preserves it and guards it against harm.
Al-Bukhaaree narrated in his Saheeh from Ibn Abbaas that Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu alaihi wassallam) said: ‘There are two blessings which many of the people lose out on: good health and free time.’”
(Zaad al-Ma`aad, 4/196)
