Purity after cupping

Fatwaa ID: 1577

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله و بركاته

Hopefully mufti saab is in the best of imaan and health

I have a query regarding post-cupping

Once a person is cupped ,the person will be advised not to shower or wash with water as this will cause irritation and hurtful

So generally after the cups are removed the excess blood is wiped off by tissue or any other dry method and no water is used

Will the said person be in state where they can make salaah

If not how will the person attain Purity

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. As long as the blood and impurity is removed, even through non-water methods, the place will be considered pure. Salaah may be performed.
  2. If the wounded place is in a body part which needs to be washed for wudhu or a person needs to perform ghusl, then he may cover the wound with a bandage and wipe over it instead of washing it. This is obviously if water coming in contact will cause harm. If there is no harm, then it will have to be washed.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
