Having a good health is one of the key factors for leading a successful, productive life. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “Whosoever begins the day feeling family security and good health and possessing provision for his day is as though he possessed the whole world.” [al-Tirmidhi]
To have one-day food and to enjoy peace and health is indeed a great blessing. It may be said that one has the same satisfaction which one can have on getting the whole world. And if one lacks peace and health, the treasures of the whole world will be of no use because the heaps of wealth cannot provide peace of mind to one, nor can it make one enjoy sound health. The Hadith also implies an advice to man that instead of running after wealth, he should endeavor to seek patience and contentment which alone can guarantee him peace and satisfaction. Otherwise, he is likely to stake everything on the pursuit of this mirage.
