The premise of Islamic medicine is faith in Allah the Exalted and knowing healing comes only from Him, and that there is a cure for every disease.

  • “There is a remedy for every disease and when the remedy is applied to the disease it is cured with the permission of Allah the Exalted.” (Recorded by Muslim.)
  • Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The Prophet ﷺ said, “There are two blessings which many people lose: (They are) Health and free time for doing good.” (Sahih al-Bukhari 6412)

However, the question is, do we give importance to our life or take time out to learn about the natural remedies that the Prophet ﷺ has told us about?


In the Sunnah Hijama Cupping was praised by the Prophet (Allah’s peace be upon him).and it may be regarded as a safe, non-invasive and economical way of curing and preventing many diseases.  Though Chinese use of this method was limited to certain medical complications like lungs infection, colds, to treat internal organs’ disorders and joint pain. The scope of hijama in terms of benefit is much greater in the Sunnah.

The word ‘hijama’ means ‘drawing out’ in Arabic. Therefore, it is now being recognized as an alternative medicine or alternative way of treating different diseases and bodily disorders. Some sections of the modern medical community also endorse the various benefits of hijama and even encourage its practice for certain diseases.

Similarly, in this non-surgical procedure, toxic or ‘bad’ blood is drawn out from the body. Certain ‘hijama points’ on the body are addressed to do so.  On such selected points, blood is encouraged to accumulate and then sucked out by using a little vacuum system.  The blood is made to accumulate on the surface of the skin where minute incisions are introduced on the skin. The blood comes out from the incisions and is collected in a cup from where it is removed.


In addition, it is also a very effective therapy in promoting blood circulation, boosting immunity, re-balancing body hormones and energy. Making it the best therapy for general health and well-being for those individuals who wish to have Hijama performed as a preventive measure. Also as a treatment and cure for tens of ailments from body aches and pains. It includes sports injuries all the way to cholesterol, diabetes, blood pressure, headaches. and migraines, asthma, anemia, menstrual problems and infertility, sexual problems, skin conditions, psychological disorders including stress, depression, anxiety as well as insomnia.

Hijama Cupping is noticeably effective for the treatment of metaphysical and spiritual conditions such as Evil Eye, Black Magic and Jin possession or for those conditions that medical practice can not account for.


Hijama Therapy is a safe procedure if performed correctly, and unlike drugs and pharmaceutical medications. Besides, Hijama has no side effects and does not inject substances in the body or prescribe internalising anything. It in fact releases toxic build-up out of the system as opposed to increasing chemical and toxic accumulation.
