In today's time of life people often face many problems and are victimized to certain illnesses and diseases. One of the most common practices to solve any illnesses is that obviously visiting the hospital. Though back in the good old days there were procedures that provided to be the basis of getting remedies for any remedies. During the period of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W there was Hijama, which is one of the oldest and common practiced procedures even today but in certain parts of the world including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Hijama or cupping was practiced by the Prophet and it was well used by him. It somehow provided the solutions to illnesses such as muscle and joint pains, lung infections, colds and problems in the internal organs. This method has been practiced for centuries and is done by Saudis and people who are trained. They will generally charge in between SR 200 to SR 300. As part of some of the advantages of cupping there may occur a few disadvantages that include injuries if Hijama is performed by someone who is not trained.
There are several things one should take into account before and after Hijama that include not to eat any dairy products before and after Hijama, not in take salt for at least three hours after Hijama, eat a pomegranate after Hijama, avoid sexual and work acts after Hijama for twelve hours and drink a glass of honey syrup immediately after Hijama that will ensure you do not become weak.
Hijama doesn't seem to be a very expensive act thus it is practiced by many of the Saudis. Over the years it has eventually faded away but now scholars and other universities are trying to keep this practice alive since it holds great and immense importance within the Islamic culture. Perhaps people will eventually learn much from this and soon this practice could revive again and people will be relieved of all similar illnesses by which they are left lazy and unable to work.
