Could Shaitan/ Jinn make me sick during or after Hijama?

(Translated speech of Sheikh Ahmed Hifny, may Allah have mercy on his deceased soul)

Some people may feel sick after Hijama a couple of weeks, a couple of days, or a couple of hours.

1- When someone feels sick a couple of weeks after Hijama, it is likely because of Evil Eye. There are 2 types of Nazar (Ayn), jealous and admiring. The jealous evil eye is when someone wishes that the gift/ blessing that someone else enjoys is void and compromised.

The admiring evil eye is when someone mentions a gift or blessing without referring this blessing to the Ultimate Giver, Creator… God “Allah”. Example: My son is strong. Versus, God made my son strong.

Another Example of referring the blessing to Allah to prevent accidental Nazar: “Maryam has been sick for years, but after she got Hijama she feels much better MashAllah (As God has determined). In this case, Shaitan cannot hurt this person. When you get Hijama do not tell people that you are cured, It is enough to say that you are better.

2- Some patients feel sick a couple of days after Hijama. If one gets Hijama on the upper part of the body, they should rest for 24 hours. Do not forget to rest emotionally and psychologically. If Hijama involves the lower half of your body, rest for 48 hours. Hormones, enzymes, and glands are stimulated by Hijama. Overexertion after feeling significantly better post-Hijama can lead to complications.

3- A couple of hours after Hijama, some patients experience pain, fatigue, and discomfort. They become almost disabled after Hijama. The patient should be asked whether or not he sees nightmares. If he gets nightmares, this means that Shaitan harming him. Hijama hurts Jinn and removes their poison from the body. Hijama can even get the Jinn itself outside of the body. So, since Hijama hurts the Jinn, the Jinn works on scaring the patient away from Hijama. Hijama involves simple scratches and minimal bleeding. How can such an act cause ongoing pain and complications despite being performed according to medical guidelines by a medical doctor?

Jinn Attacks

Sometimes, Jinn targets the Hijama Practitioner by causing harm and sickness to them and their family members in revenge. It happens often to naive Hijama Practitioners who are not fortified by Athkar. As for patients targeted by Jinn, they could lose consciousness during Hijama, look as if dead, and experience foaming at the mouth, as further proof by Jinn that Hijama must stop immediately and should not be performed again. Everyone would start blaming the Hijama Practitioner. The obvious result is that the Hijama Practitioner will not do Hijama again to this patient or even quit Hijama altogether. Jinn could trigger symptoms for diseases that the patient does not even have in the first place; to the point that when the patient goes to run blood work or a scan. The numbers would be off and would indicate a serious disease state. So always ask the patient if they have had jinn issues even if it is something old from a while ago.

The solution for both the Hijama Practitioner and the patient is to smile confidently and remain calm during unexplained reactions. This type of confidence scares and frustrates the jinn. If somebody suffers from harm caused by Jinn, they should be treated by a Raqi first before getting Hijama. Prophet Muhammed used to seek refuge in Allah against the eyes of humans and the eyes of Jinn. When the Moaothat (Surat Al-Falaq and Surat Al-Nas) verses were revealed to the prophet, He used them to fortify himself against the Jinn and he forfeited everything else he used previously. If you are being harmed by the Jinn, you should honestly share this information with the Hijama practitioner. Prepare yourself by reading the Moaothat (Surat Al-Falaq and Surat Al-Nas) for a week or ten days before Hijama. Read them daily 50 times or 100 times a day or even more. Every time you recite them, start with saying I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Shaitan “A’aouzo billah min Alshaytan arajeem”.

Recite loudly with confidence. After you finish each recitation, act as if you are spitting on Sheitan, 3 times around you especially on your left side. If you keep repeating this recitation this way, Jinn, will not be able to withstand this. The patient should be the one who recites this. If the patient can’t, someone else can read them for the patient, and at the very least the patient can listen to a recording.

When Ruqia is recited sincerely and repeatedly, Jinn shrinks and eventually diminishes. It could leave during Hijama or even without Hijama. Again, I emphasize that Smiling with confidence by both the patient, the Hijama Practitioner, and everyone else in the room, even if it is a fake smile. A smiling person is a strong, satisfied, and believing slave of god. This means that the jinn can’t play mind games on the patient, and they can’t make the patient go to a scammer who will pretend that they will treat him when they are after his money. The family of the patient should repeat saying that they are not in a rush for a quick cure. This makes the jinn get desperate and leave the patient.

How does Hijama help against Jinn?

The harm caused by Jinn possession ends when the patient is treated by making Ruqiah to himself or by a Muslim scholar specialized in removing Jinn via Ruqyah and when the substance of Sihr inside the body is removed via a specialized Hijama Practitioner, vomiting or emptying the bowels in the bathroom.

The majority of patients with spiritual disorders complain of headaches, stomachache, chest tightness, and tingling in their limbs, especially the left foot. Sometimes the Jinn leaves the body during Hijama if the Hijama Practitioner places the cups on the areas of the body where the Jinn knots are. If Jinn possession is not resolved before Hijama, Hijama could hurt the Jinn itself. This is why sometimes people who have active jinn obsession experience shaking, screaming or even fainting during Hijama. It is all from the effect of Jinn as it tries to scare the patient away from getting Hijama or Ruqyah.

When the cups are placed in the areas where the jinn is, the Jinn could make this person feel pain after Hijama as a way of keeping this person scared away from repeating Hijama.

In an authentic statement (Hadith) by Prophet Muhammed, “The devil runs in the son of Adam, wherever his blood flows.”

This is why after Jinn possession ends, it leaves behind harmful substances inside the body that are felt in the form of aches in the nerves, muscles, blood vessels, etc. If the Hijama cup is placed on the right spots where the jinn left these harmful substances, this residue will come out along with the blood of the Hijama. However, Jinn cannot be compared to a pimple; breaking the skin’s surface does not cause them to be expelled outward.

Hijama removes various types of Black Magic as in the case of eaten, drunk, smelt, or sprayed Sihr. Once Sihr enters the body, it spreads through the blood to various body organs, especially the areas Sihr was intended for. When the treatment is complete, the victim of Sihr will typically start vomiting or experience a diarrhea as means of clearing the body of any remainder of the black magic.

As for the effect of Hijama on Nazar (Evil Eye), Nazar tends to be more localized in the body. Hijama can alleviate the damage of the Evil Eye unless it has caused permanent damage beforehand. However, the main cure for all types of spiritual disorders is Ruqiah.

Should I get Hijama first or Ruqiah?

Always start with Ruqiah and then follow it up with Hijama soon after. Clean the house, then take the garbage out. Ruqiah is the cure. Hijama weakens the Shaitan. Going forward, alternate sessions of Hijama and Ruqiah. Always tell your Hijama Practitioner, a day in advance if you have Sihr or Mas before he starts working on you. This will allow him to fortify himself with Athkar before he starts. Also, the Hijama Practitioner will tweak the treatment plan to focus on points that will help remove the evil effect of Sihr left over by the Jinn.

It is NOT recommended to combine both Hijama and Ruqia in the same session if there is Jinn inside the body unless the Raqi tells you that Jinn wants to come out and the Jinn is ready for that. In some cases, the Jinn wants to leave but it can’t do that on its own and needs help. However, in the case of Hasad and Ayn (without Jinn) and physical diseases, it is safe for the Hijama Practitioner, Raqi, and the patient to combine Hijama and Ruqiah. Hijama weakens Sheitan and dislodges its knots from the body. However, Hijama alone is not the cure.

Can Hijama diagnose and treat Evil Eye and Evil Magic?

It is possible to be able to diagnose spiritual disorders through the blood of Hijama or ecchymosis. Even those Hijama practitioners can’t exactly pinpoint the type of spiritual disorder present, a select few could identify abnormalities triggered by Shaitan in a general sense. As for treating the spiritual disorder, it is mainly through Ruqyah. In some cases, Hijama can remove or alleviate the harm of Evil Eye and Jinn. However, do not fall victim to scammers who make false or exaggerated claims.
