Sunnah Days For Cupping (Hijama): Safar 1432 / Jan 2011

Sunnah Days For Cupping (Hijama): Safar 1432 - Information provided by Health Means Wealth
If you are already on their mailing list, then you will have already received an email with the information below from Health Means Wealth. Otherwise please register at to get all such emails in future.

Health Means Wealth

The Sunnah days for wet cupping (hijama) in this month of Safar are as follows:

19th Safar 1432
24th January 2011

Please kindly note that these dates are based on the new, lunar month according to the sighting of the new moon by the naked eye, as cupping (hijama) is a form of worship. These dates may sometimes vary from the calculated, lunar dates.

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.

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.

Cupping (Hijama) For Women

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

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)].

HijamaPlus Clinic now open in Small Health, Birmingham England

HijamaPlus Clinic now open in Small Health, Birmingham England by Faridah Elimy

The following is a guest blog-post in the form of a written interview by Faridah Elimy, a female cupping therapist from Birmingham, England.

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

Assalaam alikum.

Since I was about 17 years old I had a keen interest in everything to do with complementary medicine. My father was a pharmacologist (developer of pharmaceutical drugs) ; I tried to look at the other side and become more and more enthusiastic about natural medicine.

Then it became my dream to serve humanity and after I became Muslim to serve the Muslim Ummah in improving their health. Better health to me also means better quality of ‘ibadah.

During the last 30 years I built up a large library about nutrition, herbal medicine, lifestyle, complementary medicine in general and specifically shiatsu, acupressure, kinesiology and related subjects. Because this is my passion I am continuously updating my knowledge.

I came to the UK five years ago from the Netherlands looking for a more positive Islamic environment.

When I discovered hijama I drew the conclusion that us Muslims have the best of all worlds; we just have to utilise it to our benefit.

So I decided to become a qualified hijama therapist. Initially I worked from home, but sisters were asking me to open a venue, so I opened a hijama place in Small Heath in Birmingham end of December 2010.

ElhamduliLlaH I get very positive feedback from sisters.

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

I find that the so-called sunnah hijama spot on the back of the neck is a very potent preventative and curative point.

A lot of ladies come to me with back problems, headache and period related symptoms. Also emotional problems and depression respond well to hijama.

- And do you find that in your experience, the conditions/illnesses thatyou have come across respond well to cupping (hijama) therapy? And if so, what are they?
As a treatment it can alleviate most health problems. Also medication is better absorbed in combination with hijama, which in most cases will lower its requirement. At the same time hijama can help with side effects of medication as a detox. People have to be patient though: generally the longer a condition has existed and the more complex it is, the longer it will take to reverse it. That means more than one treatment; generally at least three or even more and then maintenance treatments that can be less frequent.

I also work in combination with electro-acupunture and SCENAR therapy. Some ladies don’t want or can’t have hijama on their head. In that case I use electro- acupuncture on the head. SCENAR is the most revolutionary biofeedback technology that shows good results in pain relief. Compared to other pain relief therapies and conventional pain relief medication it is very effective and quick in giving lasting results. The fresher the pain, the quicker the result. For sufferers of chronic pain it can take some time to see the desired result. It works with biofeedback frequencies.

- Do you have any interesting case-studies that you can briefly share with us from your hijama treatments?
Once a lady came for a certain complaint. I only treated the neck point. When I called her for feedback she said that the bleeding that she had had for weeks from her uterus after removing a contraceptive implant from her arm had stopped the day after her hijama treatment. Great result!!! And she hadn’t even come for that reason.

On the basis of this experience I think it could be worthwhile to investigate if bleeding after a miscarriage can be shortened by applying one cup to the neck. One would of course have to take into consideration the fact that the bleeding itself already weakens the lady in question. So would have to make sure if she is not anemic. Generally excessive bleeding from the uterus can be reduced by applying dry cups under the breasts.

- 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?)
As a preventative I think hijama is the most appropriate therapy. I would even emphasise its prophylactic possibilities and highly recommend it for this reason at the changing of the seasons around 4 times a year, but some people prefer to do it every month (like the Sahaba).

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 to get it done (since it is not an easy therapy to self-administer)?

Last year I had it done six months in a row for various health problems like an arthritic condition, hot flushes and headaches.

- What is the overall prevalance of hijama therapy in Birmigham and the West Midlands? Is it available in hospitals and clinics as a valid alternative / sunnah therapy?

I have not come across any information about availability in hospitals or the NHS. A sister was telling me there are endeavours to introduce it in the NHS. If anyone has any reliable info about this, please let me know.

Most sisters I know about that practise in Birmingham are not qualified hijama therapists and I must say that sadly some sisters that come to me have a negative experience with hijama administered by an unqualified therapist.

I am an insured therapist and member of the CMA (Complementary Medical Association) and ICS (International Cupping Society).

- Is there anything else you would like to add?


What are the benefits of hijama?

It is a sunnah and as such recommended to have it done at least once in a lifetime.
Research is available to show hijama is an excellent treatment for maintaining good health and preventing illness.

I am very sensitive; is hijama painful?

The procedure starts by pulling up part of the skin under a cup. By leaving the cup on for 3-5 minutes the skin under the cup becomes numb. When the treatment is carried out it feels like little pinpricks.

Do I have to see blood?
The treatment is generally done on the back of the body, which means any blood is out of sight!

Do you offer an alternative for wet hijama ?
Yes, if for any reason you can’t or don’t want to have wet hijama done, I can treat you with dry hijama, SCENAR and/or electro acupuncture. All therapies give good results. But wet hijama is overall the most effective treatment.
