Hijjama day

Assalamu alaykum, I had my hijjam done today. Hamdulillah. It's my second one.
The first time I have done only the Sunnah spot which is between your shoulder blades, just under the neck where you can touch a big round bone.
I have allowed my two boys to have a look to the procedure and hamdulillah to my surprise they were very interested and not disturbed by it. So I have decided to search the internet for some more information about hijjama. Insh'Allah I will prepare a lesson for them about the benefits of cupping.

Insh'Allah here are some useful information about this Sunnah:
Hijama (Arabic حجامة lit. "sucking") is the name in Arab traditional medicine for wet cupping, where blood is drawn by vacuum from a small skin incision for therapeutic purposes.[1] Hijama is generally performed by Muslims as it is a form of medicine specifically mentioned and encouraged by the prophet Muhammad. Among other hadith, it is mentioned in that recorded by Imam Bukhari (5263) and Imam Muslim (2952), saying "Hijama is among your best remedies" (خير ما تداويتم به الحجامة). Please read more []

Wa alaykum assalam
