Hajamah or ‘Wet Cupping’ as known in the West is a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w.). This procedure has been done for the past hundreds of years as an aliment to a plethora of diseases and to maintain general health. The Prophet had hijama done on himself and advised others to do it as well.
The benefit of hijama is taking out the coagulated blood (sometimes called ‘bad blood’) out of the body. This blood is stagnate, old, full of toxins, and has no benefit of being in your body.
Here’s a video of one of our participates that shows the bad blood we took out:
In trying to revive this sunnah we are planning to do FREE hijama session 1x every 3-4 months (You just need to supply your own cupping set). In these sessions you can get hijama done, but we also want to teach people how to do the procedure themselves.
