Using Cupping (Hijama) to Cure Illnesses

It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Whoever performs cupping on the 17th, 19th and 21st day of the month, it is a cure from every disease.” [Sunan Abu Dawud]

The verifiers note that this tradition (hadith) is weak as understood from al-`Ayni and Ibn Hajar in their respective commentaries on the Sahih of Imam Bukhari.

Munawi, commentating on the tradition (hadith), notes that what is intended by “a cure from every disease” are those diseases that are from excess blood, and not simply a cure from “every” disease. [Fayd al-Qadir]

And Allah alone gives success.
