The well-known hadith suggests 17, 19 and 21 of the lunar month. Islamic scholars have advised that cupping is not restricted to those dates.
We offer hijama cupping every day of the month (except Wednesdays before sunset).
Each month we publish the Sunnah Dates as published by the Saudi Press Agency, by the Moroccan Ministry of Awqaf and by the ICOUK.
There are differences of opinion about sighting of the new moon. We do not decide who is right nor impose one opinion over others. We simply offer a service to all members of the community whatever view they take about the matter. And Allah knows best.
SUNNAH DATES IN DECEMBER 2017
Tuesday 5 December 2017
Thursday 7 December 2017
Saturday 9 December 2017
Friday 8 December 2017
Sunday 10 December 2017
Please remember that a new Islamic day starts at sunset - Maghrib - so that, for example, the UK-Saudi 17 lunar day starts on Monday 4 December 2017 at 3.56pm and finishes on Tuesday 5 December 2017 at 3.56pm.
WHY DO YOU OPEN ON WEDNESDAYS?
We advise not to do hijama cupping between Maghrib (sunset) on Tuesdays and Maghrib (sunset) on Wednesdays.
We are open on Wednesdays during the day to receive calls, to arrange appointments and give telephone advice.
We see people for appointments on Wednesdays after Maghrib (sunset) because it is Thursday in Islamic terms.
IS SUNNAH CUPPING RESTRICTED TO JUST "THE SUNNAH DAYS"?
The short answer is: no. Because to do so is to restrict the Sunnah of hijama cupping as explained by Ibn Qayyim who advised cupping at any time of the month in respect of certain issues.
