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

CUPPING / HIJAMAH RESPONDS VERY WELL FOR THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS:

Diseases caused by dampness, such as low back pain, lumbago, sciatica, pain in arms and shoulders, pain in the legs, pain in the muscular parts of the body, stomach ache, migraine, vomiting, sprains, insomnia, etc

CUPPING IS THE BEST OF REMEDIES

Anas ibn Maalik (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “Indeed the best of remedies you have is cupping…” [Saheeh al-Bukhaari (5371)].

Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “If there was something excellent to be used as a remedy then it is cupping.” [Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawud (3857), Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3476)].

THE ANGELS RECOMMENDING CUPPING

Abdullah ibn Abbas (Radiallahu Anh) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “I did not pass by an angel from the angels on the night journey except that they all said to me: upon you is cupping, O Muhammad.” [Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3477)].

In the narration reported by Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (Radiallahu Anhu) the angels said, “Oh Muhammad, order your Ummah (nation) with cupping.” [Saheeh Sunan Tirmidhee (3479)].

IN CUPPING THERE IS A CURE

Abdullah ibn Abbas (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “Healing is in three things: in the incision of the cupper, in drinking honey, and in cauterizing with fire, but I forbid my Ummah (nation) from cauterization (branding with fire).” [Saheeh al-Bukhaari (5681), Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3491)].

Jaabir ibn Abdullah (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “Indeed in cupping there is a cure.” [Saheeh Muslim (5706)].

CUPPING IN ITS TIME IS A CURE FOR EVERY DISEASE

Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “Whoever performs cupping on the 17th, 19th or 21st day (of the Islamic month) then it is a cure for every disease.” [Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawud (3861)].

CUPPING CAN BE USED FOR:

Headaches: Salma (Radiallahu Anha), the servant of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “Whenever someone would complain of a headache to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam), he (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) would advise them to perform cupping.” [Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawud (3858)].

Magic: Ibn al-Qaiyum (may Allaah have mercy on him) mentions that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) cupped his head when he was afflicted with magic and that it is from the best of cures for this if done correctly. [Zaad al Ma'aad (4/125-126)].

Poison: Abdullah ibn Abbas (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that a Jewish woman gave poisoned meat to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) so he (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) sent her a message saying, “What caused you to do that?” She replied, “If you really are a Prophet then Allaah will inform you of it and if you are not then I would save the people from you!” When Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) felt pain from it, he (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) performed cupping. Once he travelled while in Ihram and felt that pain and hence performed cupping. [Ahmed].

Strengthening One’s Intelligence and Memory:

Ibn Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “Cupping on an empty stomach is best. In it is a cure and a blessing. It improves the intellect and the memory. So cup yourselves with the blessing of Allaah on Thursday. Keep away from cupping on Wednesday, and Friday, Saturday and Sunday to be safe. Perform cupping on Monday and Tuesday for it is the day that Allaah saved Ayoub from the trial. He was inflicted with the trial on Wednesday. You will not find leprosy except (by being cupped) on Wednesday or Wednesday night.” [Saheeh Sunan Ibn Majah (3487)].

حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدُ بْنُ مُسَرْهَدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى، عَنْ بَهْزِ بْنِ حَكِيمٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ "‏ وَيْلٌ لِلَّذِي يُحَدِّثُ فَيَكْذِبُ لِيُضْحِكَ بِهِ الْقَوْمَ وَيْلٌ لَهُ وَيْلٌ لَهُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏

Narrated Mu'awiyah ibn Jaydah al-Qushayri Radiallahu Anhu:

The Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: Woe to him who tells things, speaking falsely, to make people laugh thereby. Woe to him! Woe to him!
