it is worthy, my brother has done hijama. he feeling good. InshAllah I will do soon.
I had hijama done recently. Some of the blood came out with bubbles. What would that be? I know air in the bloodstream is dangerous and can cause embolism. On Youtube, someone wrote bubbles indicates jinn possession. Any thought on that?
I've heard of that possibility as well, however from a medical viewpoint I have been told that like you said it would be fatal to have air bubbles in the blood, so the most likely thing happening there is air is leaking into the cup, possibly due to the hair on the site of the hijama which would prevent a complete seal on the edges of the cup and therefore allow tiny amounts of air to start bubbling in.
Hope that helps
PS: If you are happy to share your hijama experience on our hijama blog www.ahealth.co.uk , that would be really great as we are always on the lookout for new info, and experiences on this forgotten sunnah therapy. Please let me know and I can email you some draft questions. Salams

I quote beolw two email responses we have received to this question:
Subject: Re: Reply to thread 'Reviving the Prophetic Sunnah of Hijamah / Hijama (Cupping) in the UK'
Trust that you are in good health inshallah.
It can be due to the humour or the amount of force that has been applied when the cups have been put on.
I would think that it would be due to the bilious humour as bilious humour would already have an increase in the flow rate due to the heat.
temperament of the patient as well as the color of the blood would be helpfull.
Will discuss with other doctors and send feedback
According to the Canon of Medicine the Bilious Humour is known as the ' foam of blood' and it manifests as bubbles
Why performing Hijama? Just confused. And what is the benefits of Hijama?
I am a man of hope
For Muslims. it's a "forgotten sunnah" mentioned in many ahadith that is reviving in different parts of the world alhamdulillah.
But apart from than, it is understood to be a preventative maintenance / detox for the body as well has help improve / treat quite a few different conditions like migraines, lower back pain, muscle / joint aches and pains, inflammation (see for example: http://www.ahealth.co.uk/2011/12/inf...and-worst.html ) etc.
Hope that helps.
ON-LINE COURSE BEGINS SATURDAY JULY 5th
Besmillah ir rahman nir raheem,
As we have stated all along, the practice of hijama in the west would eventually be usurped by proud people looking to turn this blessed and prophetic procedure into a business. Search the web now and you will find dozens of people offering training courses in hijama and cupping, where only a few years ago there were one or two. Before accepting these many programs as being authoritative, make certain to ask where the person or persons offering the training received their training and where their teacher's teacher received their training. As Muslims, followers of Prophet Muhammad (saw), we are not people who run after false titles, fake certificates, degrees and positions, creating expertise or authority out of thin air. True leaders are not elected, they are selected. Without a real ijaaza to practice hijama with an unbroken chain back to Prophet Muhammad (saw), the procedure will not receive the healing blessings that an authorized person can provide. Otherwise, you are practicing cupping, not hijama.Most of these fake practitioners are providing hijama services on the wrong even lunar days.
The primary purpose of this introductory cupping (hijama) course is to train the student in the basic moral standards, manipulative skills, safety judgments, proper work habits, and desirable prophetic attitudes necessary to obtain an ijaaza as an authorized assistant cupping practitioner. All students who successfully complete the course will then be required to perform at least (50) fifty hours of practical work experience along side an (authorized) cupper. Practitioners who wish to offer services to the public and train others, will then need to complete the requirements for the Cupping 102 course before receiving a final ijaaza to actually perform cupping. Students completing the 101 course will be granted an ijaaza as an assistant cupping practitioner. Those students receiving an ijaaza as an assistant cupping practitioner will automatically be enrolled in the Cupping 102 course. There are no academic charges for the Cupping 102 course, although there are related travel expenses. There is no guarantee, no matter how technically proficient you may have become, that you will be granted and ijaaza. First and foremost, a successful ijaaza candidate will have high moral character and honor. Those coming to teach rather than learn, or seeking to start a business, should likely not waste their or our valuable time.
The course will begin on July 5th and runs five weeks with two hours of on-line classes held on consecutive Saturday afternoons from 3PM to 5PM EST.
Students should answer and submit their written responses to the following questions along with a short explanation as to why you wish to learn about hijama and what relevant experience you currently have. Once you have submitted your responses and explanation we will send you a full course syllabus, invoice, and other enrollment requirements.
Enrollment deadline June 30th, 2012 Enrolment is limited to ten students.
Course costs including required supplies and books will not exceed US $200.00. The final course cost and bill will be submitted with the course syllabus.
Please understand we are not in the business of offering on-line courses. Hijama training is not a distance learning program and requires at least fifty (50) hours of practical study with no guarantee students will receive an ijaaza at the end of the course. Our objective in offering courses is only to identify real healers who can provide authentic cupping services to the general public and uphold this important sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (saw) in a respectful and honorable manner. We are charging for the courses to make certain students are serious. Certain supplies and books will need to be purchased by each student as well. We will consider a sliding scale for those in financial need. Students who already have a cupping set may have to submit a picture of the set for approval.
Baraka la feek
Please Note: all answers should be contained in the body of your email, not as an attached document. You may copy and paste the following questions into your email client.
* What do you understand the term authorized ijaaza to mean and how does it differ from the term certification or degree?
* Take one ailment or illness you believe benefits from hijama treatment and describe why you think hijama works to cure that illness or disease?
* Please briefly describe why you believe such a profoundly intelligent and articulate man, Prophet Muhammad (saw), was illiterate (unlettered). (For those non-Muslims not familiar with Prophet Muhammad this may require some research, just do your best to answer - we will cover this in the course).
* Please provide a short explanation as to why you wish to learn about hijama and provide any experience or training you think to be relevant.
For the honor of the most honored amongst creation, Saydinah Muhammad (saw).

Well said. Agree with hijamaijaaza. It's becoming a joke.
I guess the truth hurts! They zapped my post. Here again, silencing real experts and allowing frauds to voice countless opinions. Allah save us from such things.
My goodness, zapped again. I guess posting a source where people can really find the truth is HARAM! Allah forgive us all and set us on a path that is straight.
