Q: I would like to ask what are the best days for having hijama (cupping) done and if there are any days on which hijama (cupping) should be prevented or is prohibited.
From the days of the month, special mention is made of the 17th, 19th, and 21st of the month. It is reported in the Hadith that cupping done on the 17th, 19th, and 21st of the month is a means of shifa for sicknesses.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
