Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam has taught the ummah all the beneficial things such as maintaining health physically and spiritually, as well as the cures for various diseases. One of the ways for taking care of one's health is by 'berbekam' or cupping, which is one of the Prophet Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam's sunnah or practice. This was among the contents of the Tazkirah Subuh or Dawn Talk during the 'Masjidku Makmur, Negara Berkat' programme at the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque early yesterday morning.
The talk titled 'Sunnah Berbekam, Sejarah dan Kelebihannya' or the 'Sunnah of Cupping, its History and Benefits' which was delivered by Awang Haji Adi Aismat bin Lamat, a religious officer from Darussalam Holdings, among others shared the history and benefits of cupping according to the sunnah of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam. The alternative medicine is said to be able to treat diseases such as high blood pressure, headache, gout and obesity. Among those in attendance were Dato Seri Paduka Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohd Daud, Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs; Awang Haji Mohd Serudin bin Haji Timbang, Acting Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Religious Affairs; and Awang Roslan bin Haji Taja'ah, Deputy Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Religious Affairs. The programme is an initiative to welcome and increase the participation of Muslim congregants in together glorifying the mosque in conjunction with the Bandarku Ceria programme.
