Run/Walk

Aisha (ra) stated that, “I raced with the Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam  and I beat him. Later, when I had put on some weight, we raced again and he won. Then he said,  “This cancels that (referring to the previous race.)”  ~Sahih Bukhari~

Whether you have taken up running to lose weight, to improve fitness, to relieve stress, to compete, or just to kill time, you’ll find that the benefits are many. Keep in mind, though, that there are few universal truths to running. Everything depends on the individual, and techniques that some runners swear by might not be right for you. It’s not terribly complicated: the only hard and fast rule to running is that you simply keep putting one foot ahead of the other. Running is a sport of discipline, sometimes of sacrifice, and always of self-reliance (of course with the aide and guidance of Allah). You may surprise yourself with your capacity for all three. The personal rewards can be quite powerful.
