Hijama is a sunnah medical treatment which has been strongly recommended by the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and he himself would have it done and advise others to do so.
Hijama, also known as (wet) cupping, treats a large number of illnesses by suctioning impure blood out of the body to allow clean circulation. It is also done as a precautionary measure for overall good health. The illnesses it can treat reportedly include: headaches/migraine, insomnia, fatigue, depression, asthma, skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and acne, back and joint pains, diabetes, high or low blood pressure, nerve pains, infertility, menstrual pains, stroke, hypertension, memory loss, early cataract, arthritis, poor blood circulation, rheumatism, immune system deficiency and many more. The sunnah method of Hijama, without a doubt, is far superior to other methods and will also grant the patient the reward of acting upon a sunnah.
For more information on Hijama, including what illnesses it can treat, as well as what dates it should be performed on or avoided, please read this extract about it from the famous Tibb al Nabawi (Prophetic Medicine) by Imam ibn Qayyim.
The sunnah of Hijama has not been known to many until recently, especially in the West, yet its benefits are immense.
N.B. It is highly recommended that one is treated by a qualified Hijama therapist, preferably one with a medical background. If you have any medical concerns or questions, please visit your doctor for advice.
