Frequently Asked Questions
If we take all the various ahadeeth that mention the days and times to get cupping performed, then we can summarise as follows:
The recommended times to get hijaamah could be:
On a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday
On the 17th, 19th, and 21st of the hijri calendar
On odd numbered days of the month
In the second half and beginning of the third quarter of the lunar month
Between Fajr (dawn) and Maghrib (sunset)
During the summer months.
There are some days which the people avoid, especially Wednesday which is linked to leprosy and the affliction of Prophet Ayub (peace be upon him). However the reports are not necesarily sound and we advise you to look into the issue yourselves and come to a conclusion:
In summary, we recommend that if you have a need for hijaamah then do it on a day that is convenient and timely and don’t delay too much. If you decide to do it on a recommended day/time in order to have peace of mind, then that is also your choice especially if you are having hijaamah performed for general health benefits and detox.
If done correctly, hijaamah should never hurt. The act of placing a vacuum on the skin with cups for first timers can be slightly uncomfortable, but clients soon get used to this feeling after a few minutes. In fact many people feel a sense of relief during the session. Think of it as a massage, but with a sucking action rather than a pushing action. The small incisions made to allow blood flow should feel like small scratches at the most, and is over within seconds. Clients overwhelmingly express how the procedure is not as daunting as they expected, and how they wish they had booked a cupping session a lot earlier.
At the moment, we have decided not to carry out home visits. The main reason for this is that we need to control the environment for both hijaamah and ruqyah, but especially for hijaamah (from a health & safety point of view). This can be very hard to control in people’s houses. Even for ruqyah, we find that people have undesirable spiritual elements in the house, including talismans/amulets/idols etc. So, during the ruqyah process, we need to be in a state of spiritual purity, and a spiritually clean environment with no negativity from humans or otherwise.
Ruqyah includes du’a (supplicating to Allah) and the recitation of the noble Quran (the perfect words of Allah). The ruqyah practitioner (raaqi) and the client are both in a state of helplessness, and seek the help and cure of Allah through His perfect words. Anyone who is able to recite themselves is recommended to do so. In some rare instances, where it is made difficult to recite or there is a lack of knowledge of what to do, then support and guidance can be sought from one more knowledgeable of the field. In addition to the recitation of the Quran, some sessions include being sprayed on with water, drinking ruqyah water, dry spittle (being blown on), and/or applying ruqyah oil to the skin.
