Hijamah in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia – by Abu Abdul Wali

This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Abu Abdul Wali – a male cupping therapist based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist?

My name is Abu Abdul Wali & I live in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I am a metallurgical engineer by profession; I graduated from UET (University of Engineering & Technology) Lahore in 1992.

I always loved Tibb-e-Nabawi foods (especially vinegar + barley bread) & Tibb-e-Nabawi herbs, & their quick healing had inspired my family & friends, especially the vinegar, I started to brew vinegar in my house & from there, my trust increased more for the TRUE SHIFA, I started sharing my vinegar & a blend which I made with 17 herbs of Tibbe-e-Nabawi to many of my friends & they healed miraculously, & then, one of my friends pushed me to learn Hijamah as well, it was just a matter of few days & Allah the Almighty Gave me the training to be a Hajjaam.

What particular illnesses/ conditions (if any), do you specialize / had the most experience in?

I have seen that all Mahjooms cured very quickly after Hijamah, including patients with back pain, cervical (NECK) pain, diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, headache & migraine, Sciatica, skin irritations & pigments, sinus, numbness in hands & feet, etc. I performed Hijamah on a CVA patient (Cerebrovascular accident ~ Hemiplegia ~ FAALIJ) who also suffered with Bell’s palsy (Laqwa), & after 2 days, I noticed that stretch on his face disappeared by more than 50 %.

Many patients came who were wearing the cervical collar for the last 10-12 months & they removed it after 2 Hijamah sessions. Their pains disappeared.

My wife also performs Hijamah & she told me that women with menstrual blockage got the cure, their menstruation opened after Hijamah, we can say for sure that by Allah’s will, Hijamah can also be the cure for infertility Insha’Allah.

Some people were under the evil spell of JINN / magic & they also got the cure with Hijamah (Alhamdolillah).

And do you find that in your experience, the conditions/illnesses that you have come across respond well to cupping (hijama) therapy? And if so, what are they?

As per Hadith, Hijamah is the best remedy / treatment in this world & we have a trust that all types of ailments, starting from a mild headache / pain till CANCER can be 100 % cured Insha’Allah by Hijamah.

We have also cupped cancer patients & they felt a new hope of life. I remember a person who had Colon Cancer, the monstrous cancer pierced his large intestine, then the flesh & finally the skin; & the patient had a new anal opening. He never felt the stool pressure & he never knew that stool was coming out of his new anus without any prior notice, after every 30-40 minutes, stool used to pass out throughout the day, while standing, sitting & even during the sleep. His entire lower back over the buttocks had hardened like plastic & the skin’s color had turned black. We had to apply 7 cups on his buttocks & we gave him additional medicine from Tibb-e-Nabawi, mainly Blessed blend of 17 herbs, one teaspoon daily, SIDR berries (UNAAB), Barley’s Saweeq (SATTU) to be taken thrice every day, HENNA Water with honey at empty stomach daily + Henna Khazaab at the anal opening, Dill tea + Mugwort tea at alternative days, plus Pomegranate vinegar with water to be taken twice per day. Masha’Allah after 5 days, color of his face changed with reflection of a new life & he looked fresh & comfortable, & frequency of passing the stools had reduced amazingly. I ensured him that all of us have to die one day, & I guarantee you that you will never die due to your cancer, you will have a death like a healthy person moves out of this world.


Also what would you say about using cupping as a general preventative therapy and how often would you recommend this (once a month? once/twice a year?)

Hijamah when combined with Tibb-e-Nabawi foods & herbs becomes more powerful & with these true principals of SHIFA, a Muslim can never get sick.

If a person never had Hijamah in the past, we recommend for him 3 sessions primarily (head, back, legs), each repeated after 90 days, we drain from head to toe, for women, we recommend 2 additional sessions (one for breast cancer prevention & the other for ovary / uterus / infertility / menstruation related diseases), once the drainage will complete, the body will get habitual to Hijamah & it will give an alarm of when it is needed again, with pollution, un-healthy food & sluggish lifestyle, modern medicine, etc. we manufacture the septic blood very quickly & everyone needs Hijamah after 4 ~ 6 months.

Disease was Created by Allah & CURE is also Provided by Allah, so why to go through the painful cycle of DMC (Disease ~ Medicine ~ CURE) ?

By disease, Allah Provides an opportunity to reduce the burden of sins, furthermore, He needs from a Muslim to follow the true principals of SHIFA, which help a Muslim to develop & strengthen belief on his LORD, the DMC cycle creates a strong connection between a Muslim & Rahman, between a slave & his Master, between a Mo’min (Allah’s name) & a Mo’min (a Muslim).

Following are the true principals of SHIFA / Healing :

1. Healing by Belief that Allah Has Sent the disease & Allah is the HEALER, & if the healing is delayed, it is by Allah’s Wisdom & Hikmah

2. Healing by Aa’maal-e-Saalehaat, Salaat, Sadaqah, Fast, Quran, Zikr, Duaas & Ruqya, Husn-e-Khulq, Istighfaar, etc.

3. Healing by the foods of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam

4. Healing by the herbs of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam

5. Healing by HIJAMAH; which is Sunnah & the best kind of treatment in this world

As a hijama therapist, how often do you get hijama done yourself, and what for (if any specific condition) and who do you go to get it done (since it is not an easy therapy to self-administer)?

For myself, I take Hijamah after 2 ~ 3 months, because I love it, it is not specific for a certain condition, I have trained my wife & she is now well experienced, so my Hijamah is performed by her.

I have some requests to all HAJJAMS:

* For cleaning Hijamah incisions, I only use pure Henna leaves ground in front of my eyes (Henna sold at the markets always has colors & chemicals, never use it for treating wounds & even for coloring your hairs), it is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam to apply Henna on wounds & cuts, I have seen that Henna seals the incisions very quickly, diabetic patients were always afraid of Hijamah (because of their delayed wound healing), but with HENNA, I was so confident to win their TRUST, one of my Mahjoom was a Type 1 Diabetic with blood sugar as 630, but with HENNA, it was just so simple to seal his Hijamah wounds.

* Hijamah for a woman should only be performed either by her husb

and OR by a woman only, & if a woman will be cupped by a male Hajjaam, SHIFA will never come down from the skies.

* Along with Hijamah, our Hajjaams should also combine Tibb-e-Nabawi foods (like vinegar, barley bread, Hais, Saweeq, and Talbinah) & Tibb-e-Nabawi herbs, their healing is so quick & affective & I can provide guidance for that.

Whereabouts is your clinic or practice located?

I work at a Foundry here in Jeddah & my time is always short, I do not have any clinic & whenever a friend needs Hijamah, I go to his house.
I have created a group on Google; any one if interested can join.

    Dear Bhai Shuaib,

    Assalaamualaikum wa Rahmatullahe wa Barakatohu

    May AlMighty Allah accept you among His Most Selected Slaves, I like the most those are trying and sacrificing for the sack of spreading and promoting the Sunnats of our Beloved Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam. Hijama is one the Sunnat no more remained in practice. I came across 2 different sessions of Hijama by the most kind hands of my beloved brother Shami (May Allah choose him among his beloveds)

    a) Hijama on Akhdain and Al-Kahil, soon after the Hijama I felt the brightness in my eyes and afterwards I was feeling so light that instead of walking I wished to run.

    b) Hijama on Yafookh and Haamah, I did not feel any improvement on the spot, but for first 2 days I was feeling a little bit burden on my head + some headache. Gradually I started feeling some what improvement in my Vision. I am suffering from Glaucoma, while brother Hasan is ensuring me that from Allah's Treasuries he will ask Shifa for me. I am fully confident that Allah will never deprive us from His Blessings.

    I had a left hand frozen shoulder & severe pain as if somebody is pulling my hand's vein for the last six months.

    I tried many GPs & then tried one orthopedic surgeon in a leading hospital in Jeddah. The doctor prescribed Brufen 500 mg twice a day.
    The medicine given by the doctor did not release my pain. One Friday I met Eng Hasan Shami who did my Hijamah on a later date.

    Now I feel far better than before & Inshall the shoulder movement shall be normal once the complete dose of Hijamah is done.

    On top of that I got spiritual strength which is worth much more than any thing.

    May Allah give Ajjar to dear Hassan Shami.

    I had SINUS problems since years & I was cupped by Hasan Shami, after Hijamah, I am having very good feeling, sound sleep in the night & my nose has opened. I wake up in the morning very fresh. Al-Hamdulillah. Septic fluid under cheeks, forehead and beside my nose is no more there.

    Eyes are cooler, redness in the eyes has reduced. Feels like stress reduced a lot.

    Assalaamualaikum wa Rahmatullah,

    May Almighty Allah accept your efforts to promote Sunnat of our Beloved Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam. I came across one session of Hijama by the most kind brother hakeem Hasan Shami.

    a) Hijama on Akhdain and Al-Kahil, soon after the Hijama I felt the brightness in my heart and the whole parts of the body. And I am decided to learn Hijama therapy to promote this sunnat in our family & relatives.

    I hope from Allah Subhanahu wa thala that Hijama will bring Shifa in people lives & protect them from sins.

    May Allah choose Mr Shami & his wife among his most selected persons. They are trying and sacrificing for the sake of spreading the Sunnats of our Beloved Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam.

    Hijama is one the Sunnats no more remained in practice,I tried to ask from some doctors (my friends) about Hijamah , unfortunately they don't know about this sunnah.

    I came across 2 different sessions of Hijama by the hands of my friend Mr. Shami May Allah help him.

    – First session Hijamah on Akhdain And Al-Kahil ,immediately I felt the brightness in my eyes & fresh in the morning Before I was suffering from morning sickness, pain in my shoulder & neck. But by the grace of Allah, after this treatment of our loving Prophet I got shifa from all those diseases. Now I am feeling very well, healthy and sound. And also get rid from Vasavis.

    – Second session of Hijamah four cups behind the major organs have proved very useful, every breath of mine is giving me full oxygen and reduces laziness. My body is getting lighter, reduces pains & also strengthened the sexual power. I am also using the Tibb-E-Nabvi Blend , after using this Alhumdolillah my stomach problem has been solved. Now I am preparing myself for third session pray from Allahtabarakotalah for me & all Ummah give cure from all diseases.

    Remember in your duas

    I have had Hijamah with Br Hasan Shami, and first of all I will inform you that Shami Bhai hands are soft, but I did feel some pain on cuts on my head during suction of blood. But that is normal acccording to me.

    I have a good feeling, also had a sound sleep last night & moreover my nose is still open.

    Now I wake up in the morning very fresh. Al-Hamdulillah. I am currently using presecribed medicine by Shami Bhai as per his instructions. Inshallah shifa toh allah SWT ke haath mein hai.

    Thanks once again for Shami Bhai's kind support and patiance in handling me in a very efficient way that I could ever imagine.

    السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

    May AlMighty Allah accept your effort in this sunnah – Hijama.

    I just completed first session of hijama from br. Hasan Shami sb.

    Hijama on Akhdain and Al-Kahil, soon after the Hijama I felt lightness and easiness on my whole body and the brightness in my eyes also easy breathing.

    I got relief of pain of many years on below my stomach after another hijama.

    I think everybody should go through this sunnah – Hijama, even he is having no problem, no sickness or illness.

    It has been more than a month that I had my 1st session of Hijamah done by Br. Hassan Shami Sahab. For couple of days Shami Sahab was asking me, how am I feeling? and have I seen any benefits after Hijamah? I was denying about the benefits because that was the truth. Soon after that Shami Sahab was pleased when I inform him that my concentration (Khosou’) of my Salaat have increased.

    Brother Shuaib Suria Sahab, Nowadays everybody is looking for fast benefit and prompt result. The whole world is following the same theory. No matter how fast the world is going, and how many researching is going for the benefit of mankind but when they conclude for any method, they found out it is a Sunnah and was mentioned 1500 years ago by Rasulullahi Salal ho A’lahi Wasallam. We as Muslim (Alhamdolillah) have believe that all our benefits are in the hands of Allah Subhanahu Watala. We have to obey Allah Subhanahu Watala according to the Sunnah of Rasulullahi Salal ho A’lahi Wasallam. Reviving any Sunnah in this time of Fitna has great reward. Hijamah is the Sunnah which was almost forgotten by Ummah. I always give a Duaa to Shami Sahab and to all those who try to revive the Sunnah of Rasulullahi Salal ho A’lahi Wasallam that may Allah make them among Ashaabul Meimana which will be Qalilum minal Akhareen.

    Bhai Shami Sahab has done Hijamah for me, on the back, 2 on the right & left of KAHIL & 2 behind the kidneys & spleen, Alhamdulillah I am feeling quite good after this. I am really impressed by bhai Shami's interest in reviving this long forgotten sunnah and also his interest in Tibb-e-nabwi. Since Hijamah is a proven sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammed S.A.W. we should all go for it, without having second thoughts. May Allah give Hassan Shami Sahab jaza-e-khair for his efforts.

    Dear Readers

    I Hope you all here are doing best with their health, and career.

    I had done Hijama by the best hands i would prefer i.e. Brother Hassan’s Alhamdulillah. I thank him for his humble nature and best practice he performed.

    I was cupped on my head due to severe headaches caused by Migraine, Eye Irritation, Sinus and Hypertension. Alhamdulillah, I have found a good difference after it was performed and hoping great results in near future InshAllah.
