A Worthwhile Duty

Dr Radiah Salim




A book on keeping our body and mind healthy because that is the way we show we are grateful to Him for His Gift.


"In this collection of essays on topics ranging from sleep to success, Dr Radiah Salim explores what it means to be healthy - physically, mentally and spiritually. Filled with anecdotes, personal reflection and practical wisdom drawn from her years of providing healthcare, A Worthwhile Duty is an informative and accessible guide for not just the Malay-Muslim community, but for anyone in pursuit of a healthy mind and body." - Prof Chua Hong Choon, CEO, Institute of Mental Health
