Because if we're talking about being healthy Well, being healthy and having a six pack are not necessarily the same thing. There are people who will have a six pack, they'll be jacked, whatever, but they're not healthy. Because number one, because of okay, maybe steroids, but also living with a calorie deficit and so on. It's like doing things to have, basically, fat loss. And so just because somebody looks looks like they're in shape doesn't necessarily mean that they're in shape. And so our goal

like as Muslims, our goal should be health and not to achieve a certain physique. Obviously, we like to look nice, and that's part of the human condition.
