The Second Point

(Qari Amir Hasan Sahab (DB))
Yesterday it was told that the beloved Prophet asked to value five things before other five things. Yesterday it was told that value health before sickness. Health is spoiled by two things. By spoilt mind. The mind is spoiled by things like watching TV, for example. The other thing that spoils health is spoilt stomach. It was related, as told by Sa-di Shirazi (RA), that a king in the times of the beloved Prophet (PBUH) sent a physician to Madinah, the Shining to serve the people. He did not get any patients for more than a month. The reason was found to be the fact that people there did not eat till they were really hungry and when they ate they got up before filling their stomach. The physician concluded that these people will never fall sick and left the place.

Today the second thing is being told. Value initial youth before old age. The years fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty one, twenty two, twenty three, twenty four and twenty five are called the years of initial youth. These should be valued.
