Cupping and sunnat

Question ID: 26297

Assalamualaikum Mufti sb
. Mufti Saheb mentioned in one programme that cupping is not Sunnat.
I was under the impression that all that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam advised or did was Sunnat.
Please can Mufti Sahebb explain why cupping is not Sunnat and how things get classified as Sunnat?

JazakAllah khayr

One meaning of Sunnat is: a way, pattern, a road leading to a watering place. The other meaning, which I am referring to, is in a Fiqhi (Jurisprudential) sense (like 'Fardh' 'Waajib', etc.) A Mujtahid like Imaam Abu Hanifa (A.R) informs us whether something is Fardh, Waajib, Sunnat, Nafl, etc.
