Question: Assalamu alaykum
I wana to learn how to perform islamic hijama cupping for its a sunna
of the prophet Muhammed, Allah bless him and give him peace, and it’s the best among the cures. I want to revive this sunnah please help me. How to get hijama online learning?
Answer: Wa ‘alaykum as-salam wa rahmatullah wa baraktuh.
I pray you are well.
I’m sure you can find a reputable institute online who will teach you the proper method and practice of cupping. I don’t know of any institute that I can recommend. It’s probably a good idea to look for one that has some official body approving it, so you know what you learn is authentic.
Your intention of reviving a sunna is very noble. There is a narration from the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, which – despite its weakness – provides great motivation and hope for such acts: “Whoever revives my sunna loves me; and whoever loves me will be with me in the Garden.” (Tirmidhi).
May Allah grant us all that honour. Amin
[Shaykh] Abdul-Rahim Reasat
Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat began his studies in Arabic Grammar and Morphology in 2005. After graduating with a degree in English and History he moved to Damascus in 2007 to study and sit at the feet of some of the most erudite scholars of our time.
Over the following eighteen months he studied a traditional curriculum, studying with scholars such as Shaykh Adnan Darwish, Shaykh Abdurrahman Arjan, Shaykh Hussain Darwish and Shaykh Muhammad Darwish.
In late 2008 he moved to Amman, Jordan, where he continued his studies for the next six years, in Fiqh, Usul al-Fiqh, Theology, Hadith Methodology and Commentary, Shama’il, and Logic with teachers such as Dr Ashraf Muneeb, Dr Salah Abu’l-Hajj, Dr Hamza al-Bakri, Shaykh Ahmad Hasanat, Dr Mansur Abu Zina amongst others. He was also given two licences of mastery in the science of Qur’anic recital by Shakh Samir Jabr and Shaykh Yahya Qandil.
His true passion, however, arose in the presence of Shaykh Ali Hani, considered by many to be one of the foremost tafsir scholars of our time who provided him with the keys to the vast knowledge of the Quran. With Shaykh Ali, he was able to study an extensive curriculum of Qur’anic Sciences, Tafsir, Arabic Grammar, and Rhetoric.
When he finally left Jordan for the UK in 2014, Shaykh Ali gave him his distinct blessing and still recommends students in the UK to seek out Shaykh Abdul-Rahim for Quranic studies. Since his return he has trained as a therapist and has helped a number of people overcome emotional and psychosomatic issues. He is a keen promoter of emotional and mental health.
