Cupping when it’s extremely hot

Question

Is this narration authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “When the weather becomes extremely hot, seek aid in cupping (hijamah), do not allow your blood to rage (boil) such that it kills you.”

 

Answer

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 212)

 

Imam Hakim has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
