The current study aims to analyze the health protection methods in the Prophet’s Sunnah. It examines the following preservation aspects that are physical health protection, religious health protection, nutritional health protection, behavioral and psychological health protection, and environmental health protection. The study uses ethnographic content analysis. It is the appropriate method to study the Sunnah in the Prophet’s era, researching and analyzing the health preservation aspects referred to in light of the cultural context in this historical period. The study seeks to examine the book “Sahih Al-Bukhari” to achieve this purpose. It is one of the most important and famous books that has collected the noble Prophet’s Sunnah. The study has concluded that there is a great interest in the health preservation in the Prophet’s Sunnah. It is the beginning of the health path. The prophetic directs to preserve health from all the available environmental elements. It may mean that a Muslim now can benefit from what human knowledge has found in promoting health and preventing malign practices.
