The Great Benefits of Prayer Movement for Body Health

Did you know that praying is not only useful for the afterlife? Apparently, prayer also has benefits for life in the world, especially related to body health. Find out the benefits of the prayer movement from the takbiratul ihram movement to the greeting movement.

Read on to find out what are the movements of the prayer and the benefits of the prayer movement for the health of the body. The benefits of each prayer movement can be seen below.

Benefits of prayer movements for health
As we know that in one day we are ordered to perform obligatory prayers 5 times totaling 17 rak'ahs. Every one rak'ah prayer consists of several movements and it turns out, every prayer movement has its own benefits for the health of the body.

Want to know the benefits of the prayer movement, please listen to the explanation below:

1. Benefits of takbiratul ihram movements
The benefit of the prayer movement starts from the takbiratul ihram movement. Takbiratul ihram movement has benefits for physical and psychological health. According to the Psychologist from the Netherlands, Professor Vander Hoven, the takbir sentence "Allahu Akbar" proved useful for treating psychological problems such as dejection and tension.

The takbir sentence "Allahu Akbar" can dilate the respiratory system and control the heart rate. The pronunciation of the takbir sentence is done together with the movement of the ribs and shoulder. The benefits of the movement of the ribs and the movement of the shoulder even though it will slightly expand the chest cavity.

This dilated chest cavity causes air pressure in the chest cavity to shrink. The positive result of shrinking air pressure is the ease of air entering the body quickly. The benefits of the prayer movement at takbiratul Ihram are indeed very good for improving the body's respiratory health.

In addition, during the takbiratul ihram movement, the diaphragm muscle will also be trained. This is a synergy that has a positive impact on the physiological functions of the body such as the function of the brain, muscles, organs, and other body parts. Make sure your palm is really facing the Qiblah.

2. Benefits of standing movements in prayer
After the takbiratul ihram movement then it will then be followed by a movement of both hands folded in front of the chest and standing for some time. When standing in prayer, the soles of the feet will become the foundation of weight.

The weight that rests on the soles of the feet can stimulate acupuncture points on the soles of the feet. This is very beneficial for the health of the organs in the body. In addition, this can also make the composition of the body's supporting bones flat.

The benefits of the prayer movement when standing can reduce the risk of fractures easily. In some cases, fractures can occur due to minor things such as snagging a rope, slipping, going down stairs, and so on.

In addition, the benefits of standing movements in prayer can also train well-built and straight postures. This can have a positive impact on the shape and condition of the body's bones to make it look more beautiful. The position of the foot that is open as wide as the distance between the two shoulders with the heel pointing out can prevent the occurrence of kelleo or sprained feet.

3. Benefits of bowing movements
After the short surah reading is finished, the next prayer movement is the bowing movement. This bowing movement must be perfectly done. Perfect bowing movements appear on the spine that looks relatively straight.

Position your legs when bowing the same as when standing in prayer but both arms support while holding your knees. The benefits of the prayer movement when bowing are very good for muscles and bones if done in a perfect position.

A perfect bowing motion that has a sign of a tingling sensation in the spine can reduce compression between the vertebrae and relax the previously tense back muscles.

4. Benefits of the i’tidal movement
When bowing is finished, do it tuma'ninah. Tuma'ninah is a time lag between the completion of the readings in a particular prayer movement. During this tuma'ninah the body will feel calm and the benefits of the prayer movement can be obtained.

Therefore, tuma'ninah must be present in every prayer movement. Back in the discussion about the benefits of the 'iTidal movement, remember the takbiratul ihram movement and standing movements during prayer.

The benefits of the i’tidal movement are a combination of the benefits of the takbiratul ihram movement and the benefits of standing movements in prayer. This is because the 'tidal position is the same as takbiratul ihram and stands for a moment.

5. Benefits of prostration
The prostration movement is a symbol of the recognition that man is only a servant of Allah and shows the submission of a servant to His creator, namely Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

Prostration will result in an equal head position with the foot position. In addition, when performing prostration, the position of the brain will be lower than the heart. This is useful for facilitating oxygen-rich blood flow to the brain.

All body positions during prostration can cause a pull in the spine in the middle of the back. The benefits of this pull can make the vertebrae become regular and straight and reduce compression and stretch.

Stretching will make the back muscles relax. However, this benefit can only be obtained if prostration is done not in a hurry. Once again, do tuma'ninah in each prayer movement before making another prayer movement, so you can get all the benefits of the prayer movement optimally.

6. Benefits of sitting in prayer
After the first prostration, the next prayer movement is sitting. Sitting in prayer with your legs bent causes loss of pulse and saturation becomes undetectable.

This will also stop the main blood flow in the legs but will increase the flow of blood flow to the brain and other internal organs. This condition will develop circulation in the collateral vessels of the foot and increase the body's metabolism.

The benefits of this one prayer movement will also make blood vessels become more elastic so that they prevent clogging of arteries and veins. In addition, all the joints in the legs, feet and fingers become flexible, active, and not stiff.

7. Benefits of greeting movements
Salam is the last prayer movement done. The greeting movement is done by turning to the right and left while looking at the shoulder on that side. An indication of the correct greeting movement is to make the cheeks visible to people who are behind you. So, the prostration isn't just as long as you just turn around.

The benefits of this one prayer movement are very much related to the neck. As information, in the neck there are many vital body parts such as nerves, glands, blood vessels, muscles, bones, and others.

Greeting movements can protect these vital parts. In addition, greeting movements have benefits to make the neck more flexible. The benefits of the greeting movement can also strengthen the muscles and all parts of the neck. This can reduce the risk of nerve clamping in the neck
