الجواب و بالله التوفيق

Hijama is an Arabic term which refers to ‘wet cupping’. In this, ‘bad blood’ or toxins are drawn out from the body through a small skin incision.

The scholars have highlighted many health benefits of doing Hijama and have also established that it was a Sunnah of the Prophet (S.A.S). The Prophet (S.A.S) has also encouraged the believers to do it.
