Let children grow up in a combination of body and mind development
Man is the best soul created by God, there is no other creature on earth that has the combination of various features that man has. That is why different aspects of human personality are interconnected. From birth to adulthood, a person's body undergoes various physical and mental changes. This change also affects the spiritual position of the person. The soul affects the body, the body affects the soul. The infallible bond between the two is the creation of God, they cannot be separated.
Growing up as an adult is a wonderful experience for parents. However, care must be taken to ensure that the child is given the right growth environment.
The following steps are seen as a child grows up;
1. Mental development in terms of body growth and social environment
A healthy home and social environment are essential for a child to grow up healthy. If the child is scared, or an event causes anxiety in his life, then the development of the body is also hampered. He becomes too shy or timid. He can no longer have a healthy and strong body. Neural and psychological effects are essential for the proper growth of the body. The child needs to be taught at the outset that the environment in which he is growing up is safe. Only then will he be able to develop himself gradually. It is never desirable for a believing father or mother to get sick from the seeds of anxiety and fear.
2. Physical growth due to the effect of mental growth
If the parents are mentally generous, then that positive effect falls on the child. Real parenting teaches the child to think logically, along with empathy. Only if a child learns to understand the pain and suffering of another child can he become a real person. That is what God says. Real Muslims will understand each other's suffering and try to alleviate it. A mentally strong child grows up to be physically healthy.
3. Effects of physical growth on mental growth
Health, fitness, fullness of breath, these again help in mental growth. In fact, physical growth and mental growth complement each other as a child grows older. As the saying goes, 'A healthy body is the basis of a healthy mind.' This fact has been said by various scholars from time to time. The key to happiness lies in the perfect balance of body and mind. If a child becomes ill when he or she grows up, parents should work hard to get him or her back to normal. A sick body also makes the mind sick, thus hindering the growth of a child from all sides.
4. Intellectual test or intelligence test
According to many scientists, whether a person has grown up healthy by being caught in an intelligence test. Scientist Sandwick has shown in his book that the body of an intelligent person is healthy. He tested the intelligence of 423 students out of which only 40 had the best intelligence. A medical examination of these 40 students showed that about 52 percent of the students were healthy and had perfect growth. On the other hand, 40 less intelligent students had physical illness.
That is, both physical and mental development are essential for a child's healthy growth. There is a detailed discussion in Islam about health care and treatment. Islam has given utmost importance to health protection and disease prevention. Despite the warnings, there is a strong urge to ensure proper treatment for any disease. Islam has also emphasized the prevention of diseases. Encouraged to take preventive measures. That is why we see that the things that cause human disease are already forbidden by Islam. It is easy to guess from the description of halal and haram food in Islam.
In a hadith narrated from Wahab bin Abdullah, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, 'Surely your body has a right over you. (Bukhari, Hadith No: 5703; Tirmidhi, Hadith No: 2350)
Protecting health is an obligation of Sharia. The body should not be used arbitrarily. Just as the Qur'an-Sunnah and the Islamic Shari'a have given importance to health care, it has also shown effective ways to be effective. For example, prohibiting intoxicants and taking moderate meals and timely meals. Therefore, every Muslim who strives for health protection demands faith and belief. If a person is ill for any reason, Allah rewards him for his illness. However, if he falls ill intentionally, he will be punished on the Day of Resurrection. Moreover, Islam has encouraged people to stay healthy by following the rules of health rather than getting sick.
The improvement of the body and the mental development are considered to be beneficial. In Islam, taking care of the body is considered as a special good deed, it is believed that the body also has a right over its dependent person.
Wahab bin Abdullah ( ra .), From the reported one Hadith the Prophet ( peace be upon him .) Said , " Verily, your on your body right there. ( Bukhari , Hadith No : 5703 ; Tirmidhi , Hadith No : 2350 )
From this it is understood that Islam has recorded the way of human growth in a very scientific way.
