– Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist?
I am a Senior Instructional Designer (E-learning) at International Medical University, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I did my Master of Science (Computer Science) from University of Science Malaysia. Since childhood being living in Saudi Arabia I have heard about Hijama but never tried it. When I was working at King AbdulAziz University Jeddah as lecturer one of my Colleagues from America told me that he was reading about Hijama and asked me about it. I just explained about Hijama what I knew at that time.
After few weeks one of my friends told us that he had Hijama session performed by Br. Abu Abdul Wali. He started explaining about the benefits and the knowledge that MashAllah Br. Abu Abdul Wali has. I started getting interested in Hijama. I told my American friend that I am also interested in getting Hijama session. When I had my first Hijama I had just came back from Al-Medina Al-Munawara to Jeddah. It was almost 12 midnight when I had my first hijama finished. This was after all the day travelling and lack of sleep for a few nights.
The next morning at Fajjar prayer I woke up without any alarm and I was feeling fresh, light and strong. AlhumdullillAllah. So I started telling my friends and soon after few months I had my second session and Br. Abu Abdul Wali explained and advised us all that every Muslim house should have one Hijama therapist. When one of my (non-Muslim) friend, yoga instructor from Malaysia, came to know about Hijama, he started asking me that he is also interested to do it and learn. I feel bit ashamed how come a non-Muslim have strong faith on what our Prophet Muhammad (saw) gave to us and decided that I being a Muslim should learn first. So I decided and contacted brother Br. Abu Abdul Wali. AlhumdullilAllah the way he taught us makes me feel like I should practice it. After his course finished I started practicing at Jeddah. Soon I shifted to Malaysia since then I am practicing Hijama. AlhumdullilAllah
