Swim

Our Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam would swim sometimes also. (Shamail e Nabawi)

Most people swim for recreation, especially during the summer. But did you know swimming is an excellent exercise for all ages? No matter what your age and activity level, swimming may be beneficial for your health. Swimming is a lifetime sport that often eludes Muslimahs because of our religious obligation to uphold a certain level of modesty.  Muslimahs Endure is dedicated to offering women-only swim session in hopes that we can now learn this vital life skill or just have a modest space to practice what we already know.
