    In small amounts daily it has been shown to be. In the larger amounts that some people do there isn't any evidence that it adds much more benefit. Basically diminishing returns set in quickly. So do 20 minutes a day and see where that gets you.

    If you mean the spiritual one you dont need an scientific evidence; its long historical presence among nations is enough proofing of its valuation..."Do they see nothing in the government of the heavens and the earth and all that Allah hath created?" (Quran)

    Assalamaulaikum. May Allah grant us knowledge and wisdom. Western science has an anti-Islamic agenda to discredit the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). For example; western science teaches that the earth is a sphere that orbits around the sun. However, this teaching is false because the Noble Qur'an and Sunnah are perfectly clear the earth is flat, spread out like a carpet, and the sun ascends to the Throne of Allah before descending into a murky lake of water.
