Hijaamah (Ahadith 1584 – 1585)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 29, Number 61:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was cupped while he was in a state of Ihram.


Volume 3, Book 29, Number 62:

Narrated Ibn Buhaina:

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), while in the state of Ihram, was cupped at the middle of his head at Liha-Jamal.

Hijaamah (cupping) can be done in Ihraam, and obviously outside of it as well.

What is Hijaamah?

The word hijaamah (cupping) comes for the word hajm which means sucking, as in the phrase hajama al-sabiy thadya ummihi (the infant suckled his mother’s breast). Al-Hajjaam means the cupper, hijaamah is the profession of cupping.

Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with them both) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

Healing is to be found in three things: drinking honey, the knife of the cupper, and cauterization of fire.

(Reported by al-Bukhaari, 10/136).

Benefits of Hijaamah:

Cupping has real benefits in treating many diseases, past and present. The diseases which have been treated by cupping and for which it has been of benefit by Allaah’s Leave include the following:

  1. Circulatory diseases
  2. Treating blood pressure and infection of the heart muscle
  3. Diseases of the chest and trachea
  4. Headache and pains in the eyes
  5. Pain in the neck and stomach, and rheumatic pain in the muscles
  6. Some diseases of the heart and chest, and pain in the joints

In addition, cupping may offer a unique treatment which may reduce pain, and it does not have any side-effects.

More on it here.

P.S. ideal time for hijaamah is the last third of the month. And Rajab’s last 10 days are here (almost). Planning to get it done soon? :D
