Monday 22nd Rabea Al-Awwal 1431 - 8th March 2010

AlhamdIlah the Sunnah Days are also posted on our website every month:

Cupping (Hijama) In Its Time Is A Cure For Every Disease

Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Whoever performs cupping (hijama) on the 17th, 19th or 21st day (of the Islamic, lunar month) then it is a cure for every disease." [Saheeh Sunan abi Dawud (3861)].

The Best Days For Cupping (Hijama)

Ibn Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Cupping (hijama) on an empty stomach* is best. It increases the intellect and improves the memory. It improves the memory of the one memorising. So whoever is going to be cupped then on a Thursday in the name of Allaah. Keep away from being cupped on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Be cupped on a Monday or Tuesday. Do not be cupped on a Wednesday because it is the day that Ayoub was befallen with the trial. You will not find leprosy except (by being cupped) on Wednesday or Wednesday night." [Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3488)].

* 'alaa ar-reeq in Arabic means to fast until after being treated with cupping. Once the treatment of cupping has been completed, one may eat and drink.

As for the Islamic day and night, the night enters before the day. So at sunset on Tuesday, Wednesday night comes in. Cupping (hijama) is best performed during the daytime between the athaan of fajr and the athaan of maghrib because yawm in arabic means daytime.

Cupping (Hijama) For Women

Jaabir ibn Abdullah (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported Umm Salama (may Allah be pleased with her) asked permission from the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) to be treated with cupping (hijama). So the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) ordered Abu Teeba (may Allaah be pleased with him) to cup her. Jaabir ibn Abdullah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said, " I think he (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said that Abu Teeba (may Allaah be pleased with him) is her brother through breastfeeding or a young boy who didn't reach puberty". [Saheeh Muslim (5708), abu Dawud (4102), Saheeh ibn Maajah (3480)].

The Sunnah days for cupping (hijama) every month are when the 17th or 19th or 21st of the lunar month coincide with a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. These are the best and most beneficial days for cupping (hijama). If one is not able to be cupped on 17th, 19th or 21st (coinciding with Monday, Tuesday or Thursday) then any Monday, Tuesday or Thursday of the month.

Dry and massage cupping may be performed at any time.

We pray you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries, comments or feedback.

JazakAllah khair for your support.

The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Whoever revives a Sunnah from my Sunnah and the people practise it, will have the same reward of those who practise it without their reward diminishing…" [Sunan ibn Maajah (209)].

JazakAllah khair.

Hijamah in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - by Abu Abdul Wali

Hijamah in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - by Abu Abdul Wali

This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Abu Abdul Wali - a male cupping therapist based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist?

My name is Abu Abdul Wali & I live in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I am a metallurgical engineer by profession; I graduated from UET (University of Engineering & Technology) Lahore in 1992.

I always loved Tibb-e-Nabawi foods (especially vinegar + barley bread) & Tibb-e-Nabawi herbs, & their quick healing had inspired my family & friends, especially the vinegar, I started to brew vinegar in my house & from there, my trust increased more for the TRUE SHIFA, I started sharing my vinegar & a blend which I made with 17 herbs of Tibbe-e-Nabawi to many of my friends & they healed miraculously, & then, one of my friends pushed me to learn Hijamah as well, it was just a matter of few days & Allah the Almighty Gave me the training to be a Hajjaam.

What particular illnesses/ conditions (if any), do you specialize / had the most experience in?

I have seen that all Mahjooms cured very quickly after Hijamah, including patients with back pain, cervical (NECK) pain, diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, headache & migraine, Sciatica, skin irritations & pigments, sinus, numbness in hands & feet, etc. I performed Hijamah on a CVA patient (Cerebrovascular accident ~ Hemiplegia ~ FAALIJ) who also suffered with Bell's palsy (Laqwa), & after 2 days, I noticed that stretch on his face disappeared by more than 50 %.

Many patients came who were wearing the cervical collar for the last 10-12 months & they removed it after 2 Hijamah sessions. Their pains disappeared.

My wife also performs Hijamah & she told me that women with menstrual blockage got the cure, their menstruation opened after Hijamah, we can say for sure that by Allah's will, Hijamah can also be the cure for infertility Insha'Allah.

Some people were under the evil spell of JINN / magic & they also got the cure with Hijamah (Alhamdolillah).

And do you find that in your experience, the conditions/illnesses that you have come across respond well to cupping (hijama) therapy? And if so, what are they?

As per Hadith, Hijamah is the best remedy / treatment in this world & we have a trust that all types of ailments, starting from a mild headache / pain till CANCER can be 100 % cured Insha'Allah by Hijamah.

We have also cupped cancer patients & they felt a new hope of life. I remember a person who had Colon Cancer, the monstrous cancer pierced his large intestine, then the flesh & finally the skin; & the patient had a new anal opening. He never felt the stool pressure & he never knew that stool was coming out of his new anus without any prior notice, after every 30-40 minutes, stool used to pass out throughout the day, while standing, sitting & even during the sleep. His entire lower back over the buttocks had hardened like plastic & the skin's color had turned black. We had to apply 7 cups on his buttocks & we gave him additional medicine from Tibb-e-Nabawi, mainly Blessed blend of 17 herbs, one teaspoon daily, SIDR berries (UNAAB), Barley's Saweeq (SATTU) to be taken thrice every day, HENNA Water with honey at empty stomach daily + Henna Khazaab at the anal opening, Dill tea + Mugwort tea at alternative days, plus Pomegranate vinegar with water to be taken twice per day. Masha'Allah after 5 days, color of his face changed with reflection of a new life & he looked fresh & comfortable, & frequency of passing the stools had reduced amazingly. I ensured him that all of us have to die one day, & I guarantee you that you will never die due to your cancer, you will have a death like a healthy person moves out of this world.


Also what would you say about using cupping as a general preventative therapy and how often would you recommend this (once a month? once/twice a year?)

Hijamah when combined with Tibb-e-Nabawi foods & herbs becomes more powerful & with these true principals of SHIFA, a Muslim can never get sick.

If a person never had Hijamah in the past, we recommend for him 3 sessions primarily (head, back, legs), each repeated after 90 days, we drain from head to toe, for women, we recommend 2 additional sessions (one for breast cancer prevention & the other for ovary / uterus / infertility / menstruation related diseases), once the drainage will complete, the body will get habitual to Hijamah & it will give an alarm of when it is needed again, with pollution, un-healthy food & sluggish lifestyle, modern medicine, etc. we manufacture the septic blood very quickly & everyone needs Hijamah after 4 ~ 6 months.

Disease was Created by Allah & CURE is also Provided by Allah, so why to go through the painful cycle of DMC (Disease ~ Medicine ~ CURE) ?

By disease, Allah Provides an opportunity to reduce the burden of sins, furthermore, He needs from a Muslim to follow the true principals of SHIFA, which help a Muslim to develop & strengthen belief on his LORD, the DMC cycle creates a strong connection between a Muslim & Rahman, between a slave & his Master, between a Mo'min (Allah's name) & a Mo'min (a Muslim).

Following are the true principals of SHIFA / Healing :

1. Healing by Belief that Allah Has Sent the disease & Allah is the HEALER, & if the healing is delayed, it is by Allah's Wisdom & Hikmah

2. Healing by Aa'maal-e-Saalehaat, Salaat, Sadaqah, Fast, Quran, Zikr, Duaas & Ruqya, Husn-e-Khulq, Istighfaar, etc.

3. Healing by the foods of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam

4. Healing by the herbs of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam

5. Healing by HIJAMAH; which is Sunnah & the best kind of treatment in this world

As a hijama therapist, how often do you get hijama done yourself, and what for (if any specific condition) and who do you go to get it done (since it is not an easy therapy to self-administer)?

For myself, I take Hijamah after 2 ~ 3 months, because I love it, it is not specific for a certain condition, I have trained my wife & she is now well experienced, so my Hijamah is performed by her.

I have some requests to all HAJJAMS:

* For cleaning Hijamah incisions, I only use pure Henna leaves ground in front of my eyes (Henna sold at the markets always has colors & chemicals, never use it for treating wounds & even for coloring your hairs), it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam to apply Henna on wounds & cuts, I have seen that Henna seals the incisions very quickly, diabetic patients were always afraid of Hijamah (because of their delayed wound healing), but with HENNA, I was so confident to win their TRUST, one of my Mahjoom was a Type 1 Diabetic with blood sugar as 630, but with HENNA, it was just so simple to seal his Hijamah wounds.

* Hijamah for a woman should only be performed either by her husband OR by a woman only, & if a woman will be cupped by a male Hajjaam, SHIFA will never come down from the skies.

* Along with Hijamah, our Hajjaams should also combine Tibb-e-Nabawi foods (like vinegar, barley bread, Hais, Saweeq, and Talbinah) & Tibb-e-Nabawi herbs, their healing is so quick & affective & I can provide guidance for that.

Whereabouts is your clinic or practice located?

I work at a Foundry here in Jeddah & my time is always short, I do not have any clinic & whenever a friend needs Hijamah, I go to his house.
I have created a group on Google; any one if interested can join.

A Hepatitis C patient trying Hijama Therapy - by Usman Baloch

Hijama for the management of Hepatitis C.

This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Usman Baloch - a male cupping therapist based in Lahore, Pakistan, about one of his patients trying hijama therapy for the management of Hepatitis C (also see previous post: "Hijama in Pakistan - by Usman Baloch").

- What condition did the patient suffer from, or what symptoms did the patient have?
Doctor said he is having Hepatitis C which is a disease where swelling (inflammation) of the liver occurs, and in the test they confirmed that he is having fatty liver, pain in the abdominal region, lower right side of the abdomen, and kept feeling fatigue for small amounts of work done, loss of appetite, also pain in the body specially when sleeping, he felt too much pain in the muscles and numbness. Initially he suffered with low grade fever, and all this was ongoing for the last 9 years and now the symptoms were intense.

- How long had the patient suffered with this condition?

For over 9 years, just after having treatment for some tooth problem from a dental clinic, the very next day he had fever and pain in the body, then after some tests he came to know that he had Hepatitis C

- What did the treatment involve? How many cups were applied per treatment and how many treatments were given?
On the very first treatment only 2 cups were applied along with some changes in the food/diet intake and also some changes in the daily routine life of that person.

- What difference did the treatment make to the condition, and can you ask the patient to describe in his own words how he felt after the treatment?
When he came after around 48 hours later for the next treatment, he was having very little bearable pain in the right side of abdomen whereas he was having too much pain before, and had slept very soundly and had a nice sleep, with no pain in the flesh/muscles, no numbness and felt very much active, like he felt he now had the energy to do things which he couldn't do before.

The same satisfaction you can watch in the movie below, taken during second treatment, only 2 cups were applied on the 2nd treatment and then he left to his home town around 300km away from my clinic and I advised him to come back after 15 days, using sidr honey as his primary medicine, some restrictions on the food, and changes to his lifestyle and daily routine.

Below is the transcript of the video:

MR MAZEN BURAIQ (Senior Therapeutic Counsellor graduated from Thomas Edison State College, USA & Consultant for International Cupping Foundation):
Here we have Muhammad Shahid

Muhammad Shahid is a Hepatitis C patient. He has been suffering from this disease since the last nine years.

He has been suffering pains in various parts of his body particularly on his two shoulders and around his neck and his chest and at a certain location where the liver is.

He has been suffering pains in the past when he sleeps on his side for example, that side would hurt and become numb. And then when he turns to the other side again the other side becomes numb. Shahid came 24 hours ago to meet our Mr Usman who treats people by cupping therapy, which is Al-Hijama - the hijama which Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam recommended, and angels recommended to Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.

Hijama was done yesterday in this part of the body, in the middle of his back and as a result of that Muhammad Shahid reports, today is the second day of the treatment. Muhammad Shahid reported excellent progress. Now he feels much better and his pains have almost gone, also another cupping has been done on this muscle of his leg and as a result of that even in the liver area, the pain has almost vanished.

Muhammad Shahid reports good progress and he came back again now for further treatment. Muhammad Shahid is going to remain under treatment for a specific timing which Mr Usman Baloch will be deciding.

Now we are going to watch the second day of treatment:

This is a cup which has been installed with vacuum on his back and this cup is attracting and joining the blood inside the cup - you see there is an increase in the skin that is going into the cup, slow increase going on, and that is the collection of toxic blood that Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam in the hadith said: Get rid of this blood. He said about hijama that it is a cure and blessed as well.

Now we see what Mr Usman is performing, the second step, he is opening a blade that is what they call 'mishrat' in Arabic.

Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam said:

"La Khaira fi kaseerin min tadaweekum illa ma kaana min shurbate asal, au shartate mihjam au kayyin bin naar, wa inni la uhibbul kayya bin naar"
There is no benefit in most of the medicines you are using, except what is in a sip or drink or honey, or in the 'mishrat'...

... The blade with which Mr Usman has made small injuries on that part of the body which has been raised by vacuum. Again he has installed the cup, now you can see the blood coming into it from the skin from his back this blood will be thrown away, and the body will get rid of this collection of toxic and damaging concentrations of blood in his skin , he will get rid of them and he will again get better inshaAllah

Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam informed us that the best of the treatments we have is a drink of honey, or hijama (which is being performed in front of you) or what they call branding with fire (cauterisation) - the latter which is something that Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam did not like.

USMAN BALOCH: Thank you Mr Mazen Buraiq for your kind help. You people keep visiting us at our website where you can find further details of this patient, and other patients who are being with cupping and honey therapy. Thank you,

Allah Hafiz, Goodbye.
