wa alaykum salam I sent this question to 2 salafiyyah sisters who do cupping. InshAllah I hope you will have your answer soon.
"IF YOU HEAR SOMEONE CRITICISING OR REJECTING THE NARRATIONS OR DESIRING SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE NARRATIONS,HAVE DOUBT ABOUT HIS ISLAM,DO NOT DOUBT ABOUT HIS BEING A PERSON OF DESIRES ANDINNOVATION."[ABU MUHAMMAD AL BARBAHAAREE](RAHIMAHULLAH)
assalamu alaikum wa rahmattullahi, insha'allah i wanted to make a clarification on a question my husband had asked. we have listened to a tape on al hijaamah by sheikh Muhammad Musa Nasr and in it he states that the cupping is beneficial in the sacrial area(i.e. lower back) for women with bleeding problems and people with hemmorrhoids, etc. the question is really not that it is beneficial(b/c he said that it could be dangerous for people with diabetes in their extremeties and people with low blood should have it checked before hand, etc.), but if it could in fact be harmful to her and the unborn fetus...specifically in that area. if anyone has any knowledge on this matter, please let us know bi'idhnillah. barakallahu feekum wa assalam
