cupping & the sunnah

cupping is a sunnah treatment

The prophet Muhammad (pbuh) 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)].

Throughout history it is well documented that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a firm user and advocate of cupping therapy (hijama). There are a number of authentic hadiths which emphasise the benefits of cupping, some of the hadiths are referenced below:

Hijama As A Cure
The Messenger (pbuh) said “Indeed in cupping (hijama) there is a cure.”
[Saheeh Muslim (5706)]
Divine Treatment
The Messenger (pbuh) said that on the night of Israa (his ascension to the heavens) he 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)]
Best Of Remedies
The Messenger (pbuh) said, “Indeed the best of remedies you have is cupping(hijama)…”
[Saheeh al-Bukhari (5371)]
Healing In Hijama
Abdullah ‘ibn Abbās (R.A) reported that the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said “There is healing in three things; in the incision of the cupper, in drinking honey and in cauterising with fire, but I forbid my Ummah from cauterisation (branding with fire)”
[Saheeh al Bukhari (5081), Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajahn (3491)]
