Cupping on the foot


Is there any narration that states Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was cupped on the top of his foot due to a pain in that area?



Yes. Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded the following narration:

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was cupped while he was in ihram on the [upper] portion of his foot due pain [in that area].

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1833)


Imams Ibn Khuzaymah and Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah) have declared the Hadith authentic.

(Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 2659, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 3952)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
