INTRODUCTION

 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.

WHEN DOES THE ISLAMIC DAY START?

In Islamic terms the new day starts at Maghrib (sunset) time and this can be very relevant when thinking about which time to book your appointment.

 

WHY DO YOU OPEN ON WEDNESDAYS?

We prefer 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 according to Ibn Qayyim.
