HijamaPlus Clinic now open in Small Health, Birmingham England

HijamaPlus Clinic now open in Small Health, Birmingham England by Faridah Elimy The following is a guest blog-post in the form of a written interview by Faridah Elimy, a female cupping therapist from Birmingham, England. Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist? Assalaam alikum. Since I was about 17 years old I had a keen interest in everything to do with complementary medicine. My father was a pharmacologist (developer of pharmaceutical drugs) ; I tried to look at the other side and become more and more enthusiastic about natural medicine. Then it became my dream to serve humanity and after I became Muslim to serve the Muslim Ummah in improving their health. Better health to me also means better quality of ‘ibadah. During the last 30 years I built up a large library about nutrition, herbal medicine, lifestyle, complementary medicine in general and specifically shiatsu, acupressure, kinesiology and related subjects. Because this is my passion I am continuously updating my knowledge. I came to the UK five years ago from the Netherlands looking for a more positive Islamic environment. When I discovered hijama I drew the conclusion that […]

Who should perform Hijama?

The following is an article from Dr Rizwhan Suleman (Mchiro) of Hijama Centres UK. The opinions discussed and expressed in the article are entirely the authors, and sharing the article on the blog does not necessarily mean we agree to everything being discussed therein in its entirely.  Who should perform Hijama? Who should replace the Barber Surgeon of the 1800’s? This is a question that is widely discussed, debated and even argued about in the practical sphere of hijama (wet-cupping) therapy. Is hijama something that should be exclusively practiced by qualified doctors or is it something that can be done at home by family members and lay people alike? This is a question that patients and practitioners are continuously asking. What is at stake? Firstly, it must be highlighted that our health, whether we recognize it or not, is our greatest possession, second to only one thing, our spirituality (imaan). These two assets are entrusted to us by Allah and when combined they amount to more than any amount of wealth that any human being can possess on the face of the earth. Once this basic principle is understood, the gravity of placing this trust (amaanah) in the hands of […]

A hijama experience from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

A hijama experience from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia- By Tara Umm Omar This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Tara Umm Omar, a hijama patient in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. – What condition did you suffer from? I experienced recurrent pain in the small of my back. – Where do you live and where did you go for the hijama therapy? I live in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. My friend cupped me in the privacy of her home. – What did the treatment involve? She cupped me in 9 hijama points: 1, 4, 5, 9, 10, 20, 21, 22, and 23. – What was the result?There was a point when I think my iron got low because I felt nauseous and as if I would faint. My friend stopped and reminded me to recite the Shahada, Surah Al-Ikhlas, Surah An-Nas, Surah Al-Falaq, Ayat Al-Kursi, the last 2 ayat of surah Al-Baqarah. I started to feel better immediately and this confirmed the healing power of the above soorat and ayat alhamdulillah. The next day I was energetic and have not experienced back pain until recently. The time between hijama and the returning pain was a little more than one […]
