Hijama Sunnah Points
Nine Sunnah points of Hijama
The sunnah (historical evidence / traditions of the prophets life) encourages Muslims to seek Hijama (cupping) as a form of preventive medicine, promoting the removal of harmful toxins from the body and promoting better health. There are 9 points of the body where the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had hijama performed.
The sunnah points emphasise not just hijama’s therapeutic benefits but also its spiritual significance. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) endorsed the practice of cupping as a means of promoting overall well-being and treating various ailments. In fact, the practice of hijama had been relayed to the Prophet (peace be upon him) by the angels !
Abdullah ibn Abbas reported that the Messenger said,
“I did not pass by an angel from the angels on the night journey except that they all said to me: Upon you is Hijama, Muhammad.”
