Hijama (Wet Cupping)

Hijama (Wet Cupping) is one of the cures from the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Not exclusively did he have hijama performed on himself, however he likewise suggested it as a valuable treatment for different infirmities.

Note that despite the fact that the different structures and strategies for Cupping are valuable, just wet measuring (hijama) is a cure from the sunnah.

Benefits of Hijama Narrated in Islam:

  1. Narrated Salma (radiyallahu anhaa), the servant of the messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam): There was no one who complained to the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) of a headache except he would say to him: Get treated with Cupping. And neither a pain in the legs except he would say: dye them (with Henna). (Sunan Abu Dawud 3858)
  2. Narrated Jabir (radiyallahu anhu) when he returned to Muqanna’ he said: I will not leave until to treat yourself with Cupping. For indeed I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saying: Indeed there is a cure in it (in Cupping). (Sahih Muslim 2205)
