Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“How excellent is the person who cups; he removes the [dirty] blood, relieving the back and clearing the vision.”



Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer Hadith. He has declared the Hadith sound (hasanun gharib).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2053)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
