The following is a hijama case study kindly contributed by Dr Nazri Nizar, a male cupping therapist from Colombo, Sri Lanka
Allaah Blessess a childless mother for 15 year after Hijama Therapy – Al Hamdu Lillaah
Patient: Mareeha (Not the real name)- Lady from Sri Lanka living in Saudi Arabia:
Age: 37 year old female
Place of treatment: Colombo, Sri Lanka
Hijama Treatment for: Infertility performed under the supervision of Dr. Nazri Nizar assisted by Mrs Nasabi Jeffry.
What is infertility?: A certain biological inability to become pregnant
This Muslim lady patient from Sri Lanka lives in Saudi Arabia where her husband works. She has been married for over 15 years without a child. On a holiday to Sri Lanka, this lady had visited a relative who is known to our family. The relative, seeing the sadness on her face, quietly asked her whether she had any knowledge of Hijama Therapy. The patient replied having heard about the therapy but did not know fully well what it was all about. I had a call from the lady who quietly inquired with me whether she could visit us with a patient who is on a holiday. I agreed.
Accompanying the patient to our house, the patient was introduced to our family. I together with my wife discussed the history of the patient and had the opportunity of introducing Hijama therapy and the numerous benefits to be derived from it.
Although, a bit reluctant at the initial stage, the patient finally agreed to undergo the therapy saying “lets give it a try, nothing to lose” as she had previously tried many therapies without much success. An appointment was fixed for the therapy the next day. The patient was advised to have her meals a bit early and to come 4 hours later for the treatment.
As usual after seeking Allaah’s Blessings, we prepared the patient. Evaluating the numerous points, instructions were given to my wife who did the job pretty well under my supervision. The patient responded well during the therapy and we were able to accomplish the task without any difficulties Al Hamdu Lillaah.
The patient having returned to Saudi Arabia at the end of the vacation and a few months later in the middle of the night, the telephone near my bed was ringing and I picked up the phone and answered. This was that patient from Saudi Arabia brimming with joy. She said “Al Hamdu Lillaah doctor, I have conceived for the first time and as a mark of thanks giving, will be performing Haj this year Jazakallahu Khair” was what this lady uttered as she hung up the phone.
As per the medical rules, patient in this situation must abstain from any kind of tough physical endurances but Allaah has willed that she will have a miscarriage due to taking some injections prescribed for those intending to perform Haj Rituals.
Unfortunately she had to face the saddest situation. It was a miscarriage and she was in a terrible agony once again.
After some time she conceived again, and this time the lady was blessed with a baby girl Maashallaah. We were informed of it recently.
