Hijama courses in London

Al-Ruqya healing is proud to offer Hijaamah Courses in London

Cupping (Hijaamah) is a practice highly recommended by the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ for many ailments that a person may suffer from.

The Prophet ﷺ said: "Indeed the best of remedies you have is Hijaamah…" (Bukhari)

The Prophet ﷺ also said that on the night of Al-Israa wal-Mi-raaj (the Night Journey), he did not pass by an Angel except that it was said to him, "Oh Muhammad, order your nation with Hijaamah." (Tirmidhi)

The Prophet ﷺ said, "If there was something excellent to be used as a remedy, then it is cupping."(Abu Dawood & ibn Maajah)

These Ahadeeth show the importance and greatness of this Sunnah and remedy. Those with belief in the words of the Prophet ﷺ will know that he does not speak from his own desires.

Allah (SWT) says:

“Nor does he speak from his own inclination. It is not but a revelation revealed (An-Najm: 3-4)

Hijaamah in Arabic is derived from the word 'Hajm' which means 'sucking'. Hijaamah is simply the process of applying cups to various points on the body and removing the air from within the cups, causing a vacuum.

Hijama Course Testimonials

"Jazakallahu khayr for everything! Alhamdullilah I feel confident enough to practice hijaama on others. Considering I started the course knowing nothing about hijaama and never having it done, Alhamdullilah i'm so pleased and grateful to Al Ruqya for teaching us a Sunnah. All by the will of Allah. I really enjoyed the practical the most as it helped me have a better understanding of how to ensure everything is kept safe at all times. The teachers especially made me feel really comfortable which made it even better. I would definitely recommend this course to all sisters"


"Doing the hijamah course has been really informative for me as it has enabled me to gain really important knowledge, as well as meeting new people. This course has helped and the teachers have showed me that there is nothing to fair and overcome my fear of blood. The fact that the course was mainly pinpointed with hadiths and chapters from the Qurans also meant that we can pass on the knowledge we have learned with its evidences from the Quran and the Sunnah."


"I highly recommend this hijama course. The teachers were warm, friendly and approachable. The contents was straight forward and easy to follow. The session taught by abu nadeer was very informative and an eye opener."


"Assalaamu alaykum, feedback for hijamah course. I attended the hijamah course with sister Gul and a few of the other sisters. Before attending the course I had a.An apprehension about do the practical IE wet cupping. However the practical aspect of the course was delivered fantastically as everyone had a chance to practise. Sister Gul was thorough in the technique of wet cupping and instructions were easy to follow.I learnt alot from the course in terms of how it benifits us and the history of cupping. The course has helped me chose this as a career path,not just to help individuals but to help myself to practise holistically on myself and my family.I would recommend this course to others.."


"The hijaamah course was insightful, clear and well structured. I was taught both the medicinal and spiritual aspect of hijaamah which left me feeling confident in explaining to others the benefits of having it done. I thoroughly enjoyed the practical element of the course which was overlooked by experienced hijaamists who guided in perfecting my practical skills in a very safe and hygienic manner. I was extremely impressed with the clarity of the information provided in the course book which catered to all levels of understanding. All the information provided in the course book were backed up by both Qur'an and Hadith which put me at ease and aided in consolidating my knowledge. It was an absolute delight to acquire a new skill in a very friendly, supportive and professional environment. All in all the course was extremely beneficial and straight forward and would definitely recommend this particular course to anyone who wishes to revive the forgotten sunnah of hijaamah!"
