Cupping whilst Fasting

Q: If a person undergoes cupping whilst fasting does the fast become nullified?

A: Undergoing cupping whilst fasting does not nullify the fast. However, if through past experiences one knows that cupping causes physical weakness then in that case it will be Makrooh to undergo cupping whilst fasting.

(أو اكتحل أو احتجم … وسيأتي أن كلا من الكحل والدهن غير مكروه وكذا الحجامة إلا إذا كانت تضعفه عن الصوم (رد المحتار على در المختار ج2 ص395 و396)

(أو احتجم) لم يفسد وتكره الحجامة للصائم إذا كانت تضعفه أما إذا كان لايخافه فلا بئس به (حاشية الطحطاوي على مراقي الفلاح ص660)
