Introduction to Hijaama
Hijaama is cupping. Hijaama is also a Sunnah and was also used in Ruqya before. There are some Hadith that mentions days not recommended but for Ruqya you can do Hijaama at anytime because the person is in a problem and the problem is getting worse so in Ruqya, the aim is the eradication of sorcery and Jinn and therefore it is valid to do it anytime.

Suction with cups
You will put the cups on wherever the patient feels pain or dysfunction. You will also put a cup on the head if the patient gets extreme anger as well but no pain. Always try to put enough cups on all the places where there is pain. If you cannot reach a specific place, like the eyes, then put the cup as close as possible – like on the temples. It will be difficult for some of the cups to stick, therefore you can use some honey rubbed on the rim of the cup. Also make sure your cups are well cleaned and there is nothing obscuring the suction – like hair. Sometime you will find that certain places of the body the skin will be hard and cracked. If you are faced with this problem just rub some oil in that area to soften the skin first. This helps with the suction. You may also apply some honey on the cups rim to help with the suction. Always make sure the cups are clean. If the suction mechanism does not operate properly, you can apply some oil into the mechanism which will help seal the air from escaping.

The cutting in Ruqya is not like that of medical cupping. The cuts are very small like pin holes. Do not make long cuts at all because the idea is not to let blood out but just to make a small opening for sihr and Jinn to escape. If blood does come out then it is also okay but just check that the cups do not fall off. Sometimes due to high levels of humidity blisters may form. When this happens remove the cups immediately but DO NOT burst the blisters or rub them.

Hijaama Verses (Quraan)
Specific verses have been taken from Quraan for Ruqya recitation. These verses must be read with the intention to destroy all Sihr and remove or burn Jinn. Your intention will be that the words of Allah must destroy the Sihr. You will read the verses while the cups of Hijaama are on the patient. This should take only about 20 minutes maximum. Keep the remainder of the cups on until you have completed reading all the verses. When you read the verses make sure you read with power and force like you are in a jihaad. You will not read to beautify Quraan in this instance but to use Quraan as a weapon.

While reading the verses cover the patients whole body with a big sheet. The role of the sheet is to make a greenhouse effect – the Quraan recited concentrates on the person, in addition it is better to avoid the patient looking around because Jinn see through him and can distract the patient. Tell the patient to concentrate on all the problems and to also read the verses which they know. If they don’t know any verses then just tell them to read Ayatul Kursi and the 3 Quls but also loud and with some force. The patient can close their eyes and concentrate on the words of Allah to break the Sihr. While reading you must check the patient and see if the patient was shaking, jerking or even getting very hot. The patient might also react to certain verses you are reading, so you must concentrate and focus on breaking Sihr. Once you have completed reading the verses you carefully remove the cups and clean any blood. Also ask the patient how they felt during the reading, if they felt any anger, frustration, heat or movement. This can also give you an idea of how affected the patient is with Sihr and Jinn.

One point to remember is to study the verses and the tafseer so that while you are reading then you know what the meaning is. This also helps to enhance the Quraan.

Below are the Ruqya verses to read and how many times you will read each verse. Sometimes you can add extra verses depending on the extreme symptoms the patient has but make sure that you do not read long because the cups will on the patient too long.
