A man asked a question about bodybuilding from Jamia Binoria that whether is it allowed to join gym for bodybuilding or is it not allowed in Islam?
Mufti replied that Islam recommends exercise and playing games which makes us fit, strong and healthy. So if anyone joins a gym or builds his body with exercises which are not harmful for his health then this is not only required but is also recommended.
But we should cover our awra which is from belly hole to our knees, this area of body should be covered in every situation and we can reveal it anyone.
[junkie-alert style=”green”] Prophet Muhammad (?) said: “A strong believer is better and is more lovable to Allah than a weak believer” [/junkie-alert]
If we are healthy and fit we can perform our prayers in a better way, which makes it more recommended for us to remain strong.
