Harvard University declares Sujood Posture as best medicine to treat back pain
Harvard University, one of the most prestigious university in the world has declared the Sujood Posture as best medicine to treat back pain.
On Twitter, Harvard Health stated that a posture similar to ‘Sujood’ is beneficial to treat back pain.
According to a study published in International Journal of Science Culture and Sport, most of the body muscles and joints are exercised during Namaz. In the most noteworthy movement of prostration besides the limb muscles, the back and perineum muscles as well are exercised
The study also reveals that, the neck muscles, in particular, are strengthened such that it is uncommon to find a person offering regular Namaz prostrating at least 40 times a day to suffer from cervical spondylosis or myalgias.
Prostration is the only position in which the head is in a position lower than the heart and therefore, receives increased blood supply. This surge in blood supply has a positive effect on memory, concentration, psyche and other cognitive abilities
Earlier in 2020, Harvard University quoted the Quran, the last revelation as believed by the Muslims, and its divine words. The quotation is on display at the entrance of the library for the faculty.
Allah (SWT) chose the Holy Book as His last and final scripture. Undoubtedly, it came from the Creator of this Universe and guides us to walk the right path.
Justice and the law are of utmost importance in Islam and the Holy Quran – the book that is full of the required laws for human beings. Islam does not offer any space for injustice.
