Hadith on Hijamah: Best of your treatments are cupping, sea incense

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, the best practice with which you treat yourselves is cupping and sea incense. Do not torture your children with sore throats by pressing their throats with your fingers, but rather you must use incense.

عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّ أَمْثَلَ مَا تَدَاوَيْتُمْ بِهِ الْحِجَامَةُ وَالْقُسْطُ الْبَحْرِيُّ لَا تُعَذِّبُوا صِبْيَانَكُمْ بِالْغَمْزِ مِنْ الْعُذْرَةِ وَعَلَيْكُمْ بِالْقُسْطِ
