Hijama Therapy

Our Prophet Muhammed sallā-llāhu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam, confirmed the benefits of hijama, applied it and encouraged his companions to use it to heal themselves. “Today Hijama is widespread in the East and West—in China, India and in Europe and now it has spread to America in the last few years. Cupping reached Europe through Muslims who lived in Andalusia in Spain at a time when their knowledge was at the forefront of medicine.”

Hijama cupping therapy is part of prophetic medicine (Sunnah Medicine), and is capable of treating a wide range of diseases and physical issues.

This is one of the narrations regarding Hijama:

“If there is something excellent to be used as a remedy, then it is Hijama Cupping”. [Sunan- ibn-Majah 3476]
