CUPPING (AL-HIJAMAH) IN THE LIGHT OF THE SUNNAH

CUPPING FOR WOMEN

Jaabir ibn Abdullah (Radiallahu Anhu) reported Umm Salama (Radiallahu Anha) asked permission from Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) to do cupping. So Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) ordered Abu Teeba (Radiallahu Anhu) to cup her. Jaabir ibn Abdullah (Radiallahu Anhu) said, “I think he (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said that Abu Teeba (Radiallahu Anhu) is her brother through breastfeeding or a young boy who didn’t reach puberty”. [Saheeh Muslim (5708), Abu Dawud (4102), Saheeh ibn Maajah (3480)].
