Benefits of cupping - A cure for every disease, pain and ailment
Like black seed therapy for cancer and all diseases cupping is also a main prophetic tradition of literally millions of Muslims every year. As many know I went today to have it done and I wanted to share the knowledge. Of the many benefits of such a procedure.
It is not difficult to find a person who has this knowledge as all cities have Mosque and if you cannot find one close to you on the internet, you can contact a Mosque and ask who is performing this. Allah, knows best.
The cup is placed on the part of the body necessary to remove the bad blood and the pump is used to pump up an area. The cup is removed and 7-9 slits are made in the pumped area (and yes it is practically painless) and then the cup is place over the cuts and it is pumped again releasing the bad blood. Now this cup sits there for several minutes as the blood seeps through. The cup is removed and taking a white tissue, the blood is wipes. The cup is placed again over the cuts and the procedure done again and again. Usually 4-5 times. It is usual that the cupping would be done on many areas of the body depending on your illness or for just basic maintenance as in my case on different areas close to major organs such as the liver, the wrist, on the knees for painful knees. On the upper back for neck ailments and of course an excellent relieve for migraines.
You cannot eat protein for 3 days after the procedure. And prior to the procedure you must fast for 12 hours. It is tradition to break the fast after the procedure with dates and water.
Do not do the procedure on Wednesday or Saturdays. Try to get close to the full moon and the best is the 17th-21st of the lunar calendar. Simple requirements but usually during these times the person performing this procedure is extremely busy so you might have to accomodate her more. It is rather inexpensive. I pay nothing as the woman wants to give charity to me but the normal price is 7 dollars.
If you have a problem, such as thick blood which you will be able to see, you will return in 2 months and do this again. One time years ago, I could see I had thick blood and she told me to eat canteloupe every day. I was surprised but after two months my blood was back to normal.
My doctor can look at the hands and fingers and literally tell you where you illness is or isn't. She should be able to tell the condition of your body without x-rays but with knowledge of the body itself.
This is an extremely old fashion procedure and it has been practiced for hundreds and thousands of years and too many have forgotten this oh so wonderful treatment.
Read the following article also for the treatment after the procedure.
A Cure For Every Disease, Pain and Ailment
(By Allah's Permission)
What is cupping (hijama)?
Cupping (hijama) is the best remedy recommended and used by the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam). The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Indeed the best of remedies you have is cupping (hijama)…" [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5371)]. He (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) also said that on the night of Israa (his ascension to the heavens) he (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) did not pass by an angel except that it said to him, "Oh Muhammad, order your Ummah (nation) with cupping (hijama)." [Saheeh Sunan Tirmidhee (3479)]. This shows the importance and greatness of this Sunnah.
'Hijama' in arabic is derived from 'hajm' which means 'sucking'. Cupping (hijama) is the process of applying cups to various points on the body by removing the air inside the cups to form a vacuum.
Cupping (hijama) is of three types:
Dry cupping (hijama) - This is the process of using a vacuum on different areas of the body in order to gather the blood in that area without incisions (small, light scratches using a sterile surgical blade or disinfected razor).
Dry massage cupping (hijama) – This is similar to dry cupping (hijama) but olive oil is applied to the skin (before applying the cups) in order to allow easy movement of the cups.
70% of diseases, pains and ailments are due to the blood being unable to reach certain parts of the body. Dry cupping (hijama) and dry massaging cupping (hijama) allow the blood to reach these places.
Dry and massage cupping (hijama) may be self-administered in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Each cupping (hijama) box is accompanied by an instruction booklet. We have also provided further instructions on our 'How To Cup' page.
Dry and massage cupping (hijama) may be administered any time of the day, any day of the week or month. There are no restrictions.
Although dry and massage cupping (hijama) are very beneficial, they are not from the Sunnah. However, they fall under the general hadeeth:
The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "For every disease there is a cure so if the medicine comes upon the disease it cures it by the will of Allaah, the Most High." [Saheeh Muslim (2204)].
Wet cupping (hijama) - This is the process of using a vacuum at different points on the body but with incisions in order to remove 'harmful' blood which lies just beneath the surface of the skin. (It is recommended that wet cupping (hijama) is only administered by a cupping therapist).
We will run cupping (hijama) courses for wet cupping (hijama) inshAllah. Please join our FREE newsletter and we will keep you updated inshAllah.
Wet cupping (hijama) is best administered at certain times of the day and days of the week. Please see our 'Authentic Narrations' page for further details.
Wet cupping (hijama) is from the Sunnah. To obtain maximum benefit from cupping (hijama), it is recommended that all three methods of cupping are used.
Is cupping (hijama) a cure for every disease?
Cupping (hijama) is a cure for every disease if performed in its correct time. The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Indeed in cupping (hijama) there is a cure." [Saheeh Muslim (5706)]. 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)].
There are specific points on the body where the cups are applied for each ailment. Please see our 'Where To Cup' page for further details.
Is cupping (hijama) from the Sunnah?
Above are just some of the authentic narrations which show that cupping (hijama) is from the Sunnah of the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam). Please see our 'Authentic Narrations' page for more authentic narrations about cupping (hijama).
The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Whoever revives a Sunnah from my Sunnah and the people practise it, s/he will have the same reward of those who practise it without their reward diminishing…" [Sunan ibn Maajah (209)].
