Case Study: Hijama Treatment for Infertility

Case Study: Hijama Treatment for Infertility – by Dr Nazri Nizar

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.


Since quite a few people have commented asking for more details on the treatment, Dr Nizar has provided the following information:

The treatment involves besides hijama, a local decoction is prepared using medicinal herbs to clear the placenta/womb so as to regularize the periods.

Then Hijama is done the points basically will be: 1, 55, 6, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 49, 120, 125, 126 and under the knees on both legs. (To get an idea of hijama points, please refer to the following example charts courtesy of Health Means Wealth, bearing in mind that charts may slightly vary depending on the therapist)

Massage cupping on the stomach area is recommended.

Before the treatment, we advised two rakaa’s of Istikhara by both the husband and wife.

Please note this is for information only and as usual any treatment should only be carried out by a competent therapist who is either trained, qualified and / or experienced in that particular treatment.

    One of the Major mistakes when people undergo Hijama for the first time, is that they say "O.K, let's do it, nothing to lose" and that in itself is an insult to the Sunnah of Hijama ,in my view, it is better for someone not to do Hijama as a last resort than to do it with such an inferior view or attitude of it, i have seen numerous cases where going in with such a feeling did not yield any positive results, and rightfully so..

    Maashallah I met Dr Nazri Nizar in Yemen in 1999 when I was treated by Him a very caring and expert therapist I never felt any pain and he skilfully performed with such a dedication. The best I found was that all the accessories were highly hygeinic and bio hazard disposal etc was done with meticulous care. Hats off to Dr Nazri
