In a continuum of 1 to 7, where 1 represents being ill and 7 symbolizes perfect health both physically and
mentally, how would you rate your total health? What makes a person healthy? What undermines then one's health?
Allah's straight path is a path of health. The muttaqeen ("holy people") are supposed to be healthy people. Holiness
means wholeness. As stated by the Apostle Paul, "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your
whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians
5:23. As we accept the raiment of Allah's takwa ("righteousness") by faith, He sanctifies or sets us apart completely to be His
muttaqeen. His goal for us is to develop a holy, righteous character just like His. Part of our character development is to preserve
our mind and body blameless in preparation for the Day of Judgment which is set on the coming of Isa.
