the sunnah of the prophet
The Sunnah of the Prophet

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : تركت فيكم شيئين ، لن تضلوا بعدهما : كتاب الله ، وسنتي ، ولن يتفرقا حتى يردا عليَّ الحوض

The Prophet, (SAWS) said:

“I have left among you two things,

you will never go astray if you cling to them:

the Book of Allah and my Sunnah,

and they will never be separated

until they meet me at the hawd.”



قال تعالى :{ وَمَا يَنْطِق عَنِ  الْهَوَى ، إِنْ هُوَ إِلا وَحْيٌ  يُوحَى

“Nor does he speak of his own desire.

It is only a revelation revealed.”

[Surah An-Najm 53:3-4]

al hijama

والحَجْمُ : المَصّوالحجامة هي: عملية إخراج للدم من مواضع محددة - بينتها السنة المطهرة - على الجسم؛ وذلك بإحداث بعض الجروح السطحية وجمع الدم في المحجم

Hijama, translated as cupping,

literally means to suck. It is practiced

by applying cups on the body.

A suction is created through the cup and

blood is sucked towards the cupped area.


والحجامة معروفة منذ القدم ، عرفها الصينيون والبابليون والفراعنة ، ودلت آثارهم وصورهم المنحوتة على استخدامهم الحجامة في علاج بعض الأمراض ، وكانوا في السابق يستخدمون الكؤوس المعدنية وقرون الثيران وأشجار البامبو لهذ الغرض وكانوا يفرغونها من الهواء بعد وضعها على الجلد عن طريق المص ومن ثم استخدمت الكاسات الزجاجية والتي كانو يفرغون منها الهواء عن طريق حرق قطعة من القطن أو الصوف داخل الكأس .

what is cupping therapy
What is Cupping Therapy?
  • Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion to treat various conditions
  • A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues
  • When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place
بعض أحاديث الحجـامة

روى البخاري في صحيحه عن سَعِيدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرٍ عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِي اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ الشِّفَاءُ فِي ثَلاثَةٍ شَرْبَةِ عَسَلٍ وَشَرْطَةِ مِحْجَمٍ وَكَيَّةِ نَارٍ وَأَنْهَى أُمَّتِي عَنِ الْكَيِّ

عن ابن عباس - رضي الله عنهما - قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "ما مررت بملأ من الملائكة ليلة أسري بي، إلا قالوا عليك بالحجامة" وفي لفظ مر أمتك بالحجامة.

Anas (RAA) reported that the Prophet (SAWS) said, “When I went on the journey of al-Isra to Heaven I did not pass by any group of angels but they said, “O Mohammed! Order your community to practice cupping.” [IbnMajah]

[Tirmidhi] relates from this hadith of IbnAbbas, “O Mohammed, practice cupping!”

بعض أحاديث الحجـامة

عن عُمَرَ بْنِ قَتَادَةَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ جَابِرَ بْنَ عَبْدِاللَّهِ رَضِي اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ إِنْ كَانَ فِي شَيْءٍ مِنْ أَدْوِيَتِكُمْ أَوْ يَكُونُ فِي شَيْءٍ مِنْ أَدْوِيَتِكُمْ خَيْرٌ فَفِي شَرْطَةِ مِحْجَمٍ أَوْ شَرْبَةِ عَسَلٍ أَوْ لَذْعَةٍ بِنَارٍ تُوَافِقُ الدَّاءَ وَمَا أُحِبُّ أَنْ أَكْتَوِيَ .

روى البخاري عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ احْتَجَمَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي رَأْسِهِ وَهُوَ مُحْرِمٌ مِنْ وَجَعٍ كَانَ بِهِ

وعند أبي داود وابن ماجة عَنْ أَنَسٍ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم احْتَجَمَ ثَلاثـا فِي الأَخْدَعَيْـنِ وَالْكَاهــِلِ ( الاخدع عرق جانب الرقبة والكاهل بين الكتفين

  • Ibn 'Abbas, (RAA), narrated that the Prophet, (SAWS), said: “Healing is in three things: a drink of honey, a slash with a knife used for cupping and cauterizing by fire, but I forbid my followers from cauterizing by fire.” [Bukhari]
    • In another version in Bukhari “And I do not wish to be cauterized.”

cupping used by the prophet
Cupping used by the Prophet
  • Rasullullah (SAWS) was once hurt on his leg, (probably due to the clogging of the blood), hence he underwent cupping on his leg. [Mishkat p. 389]
  • During the battle of Khaibar in 7 A.H., a Jewish woman prepared some meat which she filled with deadly poison and presented to Rasullulah (SAWS). Upon tasting the meat, the poison affected Rasullulah (SAWS). Rasullulah (SAWS) then used to undergo cupping in order to relieve himself from effects of the poison in his blood.


أوقات الحجامة بالنسبة لأيام الأسبوع وأيام الشهر

عن أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ مَنْ أَرَادَ الْحِجَامَةَ فَلْيَتَحَرَّ سَبْعَةَ عَشَرَ أَوْ تِسْعَةَ عَشَرَ أَوْ إِحْدَى وَعِشْرِينَ وَلا يَتَبَيَّغْ بِأَحَدِكُمُ الدَّمُ فَيَقْتُلَهُ

recommended times for cupping
Recommended Times for Cupping
  • Some days and times are better for cupping than others. The middle of the lunar month, the 17th, 19th and 21st have been mentioned in some Hadith.

As the need may arise, cupping may be performed at any time according to the condition or urgency.

بعض أحاديث الحجـامة

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ احْتَجَمَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي الأَخْدَعَيْنِ وَبَيْنَ الْكَتِفَيْن. وعند ابن ماجة في سننه عَنْ جَابِرٍ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم سَقَطَ عَنْ فَرَسِهِ عَلَى جِذْعٍ فَانْفَكَّتْ قَدَمُهُ قَالَ وَكِيعٌ يَعْنِي أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم احْتَجَمَ عَلَيْهَا مِنْ وَثْءٍ

وعنه أيضا: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "أخبرني جبريل أن الحجم أنفع ما تداوى به الناس" (صحيح الجامع  218

The Prophet, (SAWS), was cupped on the upper back, the two jugular veins, the head and the hip.

Cupping may be applied to other areas including the face, legs and feet.

أنواع الحجـامة

الحجامة الجافة " كاسات الهواء " Dry Cupping

تفيد في نقل الأخلاط الرديئة من مواضع الألم الى سطح الجلد وبذلك يختفي جزء كبير من الألم ، وتختلف عن الحجامة الرطبة " بتشريط الجلد " .

الحجامة الرطبة : وتختلف عن الحجامة الجافة " بتشريط الجلد تشريطا خفيفا " ووضع المحجمة على مكان التشريط وتفريغها من الهواء عن طريق المص فيندفع الدم والأخلاط الرديئة من الشعيرات والأوردة الصغيرة الى سطح الجلد بسبب التفريغ الذي أحدثه المص

method of wet cupping
Method of Wet Cupping

Dry cupping is first performed

Small cuts are made in the cupped area then the cup is replaced on the skin and suctioned again

The skin will be drawn into the cup and blood is sucked out of the area

When done properly, on an area that has septic blood, the blood drawn will be dark. The process is repeated until the blood turns red. Then the cupping should be stopped

The area should be cleaned and bandaged as necessary

method of dry cupping
Method of Dry Cupping

A partial vacuum is created in the cup by heat or suction on the area

The skin and underlying tissue swells and becomes warm, and gets sucked into the cup

This produces blood congestion at the site and stimulates circulation

After a prescribed period of time the cup is gently removed

No blood is removed from the body

Alhamdulillah this concludes my workshop on Cupping. I did my best to present this workshop in the manner which I was taught by the specialist Sheikh Ahmed Hifni in Egypt.

I do not advise anyone to try Cupping Therapy without the knowledge of certain medical conditions or unless under the supervision of a Doctor or specialist in this field.
