Hadeeth – The Cupper & The Abscess

It was narrated that `sim bin `Umar bin Qatâdah said: “Jâbir bin `Abdullâh came to us in our home along with another man who was suffering from an abscess or a wound. He said: `What ails you?’ He said: `An abscess that is causing me pain.’ He said: ‘O young boy, bring me a cupper.’ He said to him: `What will you do with the cupper, O `Abdullâh?’ He said: ‘I want him to treat him with cupping tools.’ He said: `By Allâh, if flies land on me or if a piece of cloth touches me, it hurts me a great deal.’ When he saw that he was feeling anxious about that he said: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allâh صلى الله عليه وسلم say: “If there is any good in your remedies it is in the incision of the cupper, or a drink of honey, or cauterization with fire.”’ The Messenger of Allâh صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “But I do not like cauterizing.” He brought a cupper and he made an incision, and the pain he had went away.”
