Deze webpagina gaat over de Islaam en Hidjama!



Er is een misvatting bij sommige zusters die geloven dat hijama alleen voor vrouwen is die hun menopauze hebben bereikt. Een voorbeeld uit de Soennah om dit te weerleggen is dat de Boodschapper (salallaahoe ‘alayhie was sallem) iemand de opdracht gaf om Umm Salamah te koppen.
Jaabir ibn Abdullah (vzmh) overleverde dat Umm Salama (moge Allah tevreden met haar zijn) toestemming had gevraagd van de Boodschapper (vzmh) om te worden behandeld met (hijama). Dus de Boodschapper (vzmh)  vroeg Abu Teeba (r) om haar te koppen. Jaabir ibn Abdullah (r) zei: “Ik denk dat hij (r) zei dat Abu Teeba (r) haar broer was door borstvoeding of een jonge knaap die de puberteit” nog niet bereikt had.. [Sahih Muslim (5708),  Abu Dawud (4102), Sahih ibn Maadjah (3480)

Hijama is dus ook toegestaan bij vrouwen onderling. Een menstruerende vrouw kan beter geen Hijama verrichten (ze verliest al een aanzienlijke hoeveelheid bloed). Zwangere vrouwen kunnen GEEN Hijama verrichten.

In Cupping (Hijama) There Is                                                                                                                                                 A Cure And A blessing

Abdullah ibn Abbas reported that the Messenger of
Allah (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Healing is in
three things: in the incision of the cupper, in
drinking honey, and in cauterizing with fire, but I                                                                                                  forbid my Ummah (nation) from cauterization
(branding with fire).”
[Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5681), Saheeh Sunan ibn                                                                                       Maajah (3491)].

Jaabir ibn Abdullah reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi
wasallam) said, “Indeed in cupping (hijama) there is a cure.”
[Saheeh Muslim (5706)].

Ibn Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi                                                              wasallam) said, “Cupping (hijama) on an empty stomach is best. In it
is a cure and a blessing.”
[Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3487)].


‘Asim b. ‘Umar b. Qatada reported: There came to our house ‘Abdullah and another person from amongst the members of the household who complained of a wound. Jabir said: What ails you? He said: There is a wound which is very painful for me, whereupon he said: Boy, bring to me a cupper. He said: ‘Abdullah, what do you intend to do with the cupper? I said: I would get this wound cupped. He said: By Allaah, even the touch of a fly or cloth causes me pain (and cupping) would thus cause me (unbearable) pain. And when he saw him feeling pain (at the idea of cupping), he said: I heard Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: If there is any effective remedy amongst your remedies, these are (three): cupping, drinking of honey and cauterisation with the help of fire. Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) had said: As for myself I do not like cauterisation. The cupper was called and he cupped him and he was all right.
[Muslim #5468]

Cupping (Hijama) Is A Preventative Medicine

Anas ibn Maalik reported that the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “When the weather becomes extremely hot, seek aid in cupping (hijama). Do not allow your blood to rage (boil) such that it kills you.”
[Reported by Hakim in his ‘Mustadrak’ and he authenticated it and Imam ad-Dhahabi agreed (4/212)].


Cupping (Hijama) In Its Time Is A Cure For Every Disease

Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever performs cupping (hijama) on the 17th, 19th or 21st day (of the Islamic, lunar month) then it is a cure for every disease.”
[Saheeh Sunan abi Dawud (3861)].


The following is taken from a book entitled: ‘Healing with the medicine of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam’ which is authored by Imam ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah:

The benefits of cupping include cleansing the exterior parts
of the body more than puncturing the veins. Venesection,
or puncturing the veins, is better when used to extract blood
from the internal parts of the body. Cupping entails removing
blood from the various parts of the skin.

Cupping is more beneficial than puncturing the veins in
warm areas, warm weather and hot tempered people,
whos blood is near maturity (concerning the sectic
substances in the blood). In this case, the septic,
maturing blood will collect near the skin. Cupping extracts
the septic blood more efficiently than puncturing the veins.
This is why using cupping for children and those who cannot bear puncturing the veins is better and more useful.

Doctors affirm that cupping is better used in warm areas than puncturing the veins and that cupping is preferred in the middle of the month or soon after, especially in the last quarter in the month. In the beginning of the month, the blood will have already become irritated (thus carrying septic materials that need to be cupped). In the end of the month, the blood will be idle, unlike the case in the middle and the last quarter of the month when the blood is agitated and sufficiently produced.

Cupping the upper section of the back helps against the aches of the shoulder and the throat. Further, cupping the two jugular veins helps against the ailments of the head, face, teeth, ears, eyes, nose and throat, if these ailments were caused by excessive presence of blood, soiled blood or both.

Anas (radiAllahu anhu) said:

‘The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) used to apply cupping on the two jugular veins and the upper part of the back.’

[Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Ahmad and al-Hakim]

‘The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) used to apply cupping on three areas, his upper back area and the two jugular veins.’

[al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Cupping under the chin helps against toothache, face ailments and throat infections when used at the proper time. Cupping under the chin also cleanses and purifies the head and the jaws. Further, cupping on top of the foot substitutes for the puncturing of the saphena, which is a vein on the heel. This kind of cupping also helps against the ulcers that occur on the thighs and legs, the interruption of monthly periods and skin irritation on the testicles.

The following information is taken from a book entitled: ‘Cupping the greast missing therapy’ written by Dr. Sahbaa M. Bondok:

Cupping therapy offers many theraputic benefits. It has been used for thousands of years to treat painful symptoms e.g. sciatica, back pain, and clearing congestion in the chest which can occur with colds and flu, but cupping has recently gained popularity for it’s ability to help tissues to release toxins, de-acidifie tissue directly, enhance blood circulation, stimulate the immune system, and reduce stress as it releases chemicals in the brain that reduce stress and depression.

One of the main purposes of cupping therapy is to encourage a sufficient supply of nutrition to the affected tissues. Cupping is believed to stimulate the flow of blood and lymph to the affected area. Thus it improves blood and lymph flow of the corresponding organ, activates its function and at the same time provides rough clear diagnosis through skin discolouration.

Cupping the corresponding organ points is used in internal medicine disorders to add help to the main stream medicine. Cupping helps in treating disorders such as liver or kidney problems, respiratory diseases, digestive disorders and some gynecological disorders.

Today, cupping is used to treat colds, lung infections and problems in the internal organs. It is also used to treat muscle and joint pain and spasms, particularly in the back. In addition, cupping is used to treat painful joints, common cold, cough, stomach ache, vomitting and diarrhea.

Due to its stimulating and strenghtening effects, bloodletting cupping has been used successfully to help in treatment of many disorders to get and move the blood. It is therefore used particularly for conditions of blood stagnation, poor circulation, asthmatic conditions and cases of polycythemia, a condition due to the rapid formation of blood cells.

Cupping has an extremely positive effect on many health problems. A large number of symptoms frequently disappear after just a few sessions of cupping therapy.



The following is an excerpt taken from a book entitled:
Cupping, a practice of the Prophet & a miraculous way of treatment’
Compiled by Shihab al-Badry Yasin:

‘The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) always paid
the cupper his wage and that it is lawful. The
majority of scholars agree with that. Cupping for
money might spread the practice between people.

‘Ikrimah reported that Ibn ‘Abbas said: “The Prophet
(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was cupped and he gave
the cupper his wage. If he knew it was undesirable, he
would not have given it.”

It was reported from ‘Awn bin Abu Hanifah on the authority of his father
that he bought a cupper slave and said, “The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi
wasallam) forbade the acceptance of the price of blood (cupping), the price
of a dog, gains of a prostitue and he cursed the usurer, the one paying
usury, the one making tattoos, the one getting tattoed and the sculpture.”

This means that accepting the price of selling blood is prohibited but this is
different from paying a return for the cupper’s time.

Ibn ‘Abbas said, “The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was cupped by a slave from
Banu Bayadah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave him his wage and talked to his master who reduced his charge. If it was illicit gain, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would not have given it.”

‘Amr bin Amir al-Ansary said, “I heard Anas bin Malik saying, ‘The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was cupped and never did he treat anyone unjustly concerning his wage.'”

Our advice to the one seeking treatment from Hijama is that you follow the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in regards to paying the therapist. We recommend that you pay what you are able to afford, taking into consideration the the materials used by the therapist, as well as, the time spent with you.

We also recommend that the cupping therapist does not set a charge for performing hijama, as is also from the Sunnah.

Payment should ideally be made immediately after treatment so we advise the one seeking the treatment to go to the Hijama appointment with sufficient funds.

The average cost of a Hijama therapy session for the cupping therapist is around £10-15. This is based on a 45 minute appointment with the patient receiving 5-10 cups. This cost includes all materials e.g. the cups, pump, blackseed oil, tissues, gloves, apron, honey (if needed), blade, disposal bags, and anything else that might be used. This cost does not include the cupping therapist’s time or travelling costs (if there are any).

It is narrated on the authority of Humaid that Anas b. Malik was asked about the earnings of the cupper.
He said: Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) got himself cupped. His cupper was Abu Taiba and he (the Prophet) commanded to give him two sa’s of corn. He (the Prophet) talked with the members of his family and they lightened the burden of Kharaj (tax) from him (i. e. they made remission in the charges of their own accord). He (Allaah’s Prophet) said: The best (treatment) which you take is cupping, or it is the best of your treatments.
[Muslim #3830]
