Just a quick note for anyone interested in having Hijamah done in the UK.
We have undergone various practical sessions and are currently undertaking a Hijamah course recognised by the Complimentary Medical Association.
We are members of the British Medical Acupuncture Society and have carried out extensive case studies on patients in a General Practice setting, managing conditions ranging from simple backaches, headaches and sciatica to sinusitis, dysmenorrhoea and postherpetic neuralgia.
As qualified practicing doctors we have been providing free health check consultations as well as private Hijamah and acupuncture services for many patients in the UK at very reasonable and affordable rates.
Please do contact us for advice or to arrange a session, whether it is for a certain ailment and condition or for reviving the sunnah at the prophylactic (preventative measure) position on the upper back.
Below are a few ahadith relating to the many virtues of Hijamah. With the help of some ulama, we are currently in the process of translating approximately 70 ahadith given to me by Dr Ahmad Hafny, pertaining to this sacred ancient art and will insha'allah share them in due course.
“I did not pass by any group on the night of Al Isra (night ascension), except that they said to me, ‘Oh Muhammad, tell your Ummah to do Hijamah.” (1)
The prophet (PBUH) praised a person who performs cupping, saying “it removes blood, lightens the back and sharpens the eyesight.” (2)
“The arch angel Jibrail (AS) repeatedly emphasized upon me to resort to cupping to the extent that I feared that cupping will be made compulsary." (3)
As a final note, we would like to emphasise the importance of safe, clean cupping. It is vital that hygienic, safe Hijamah is performed taking into account each individuals' past medical as well as drug history. Insha'allah we hope this beautiful sunnah can be revived with this consideration.
“The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) prohibited unclean medicine.” (4)
