Hijama Cupping Therapy is getting popular rapidly
Abdul Razzaq narrated that, “A Jewish woman brought to Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam a roasted sheep that she had poisoned, while he was in Khyber. Our beloved Prophet asked, What is this? She said, a gift, being careful not to say that it was from charity so that he would not eat it. Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam and Sahabah (his companions) ate from the sheep, then our beloved Prophet said, “Stop eating”. He said to the woman, ‘Did you poison this sheep?’ She said, “Who told you that” ? He said, this bone,’ meaning the ewe’s leg that he had in his hand. She said, “Yes”. He said, ‘Why?’ She said, I thought that if you were a liar, the people would be relieved from you. However, if you were a true Prophet, it would not harm you.’ Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam then used Hijama or cupping therapy thrice on the KAHIL (upper part of his back) and commanded that his Companions do the same. Yet, several of them died.”
Anas ibn Maalik R.A reported that the Messenger S.A.W.W said, “Whoever wants to perfrom Hijama or cupping therapy then let him search for the 17th, 19th and 21st day (of the Islamic, lunar month) and let none of you allow his blood to rage (boil) such that it kills him.” (Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah – 3486).
Abu Hurairah R.A reported that the Messenger S.A.W.W said, “Whoever performs Hijama or cupping therapy on the 17th, 19th or 21st day (of the Islamic, lunar month) then it is a cure for every disease.” (Sahee Sunan abi Dawood – 3861).
