The silver threads of my tasbih

    Newer Older

    View large
    Tasbih, Tespih, Misbaha and Subha are different names for the Muslim equivalent of rosary beads.

    This tradition of tasbih comes from the statement of Prophet Muhammad who said, "The person who says Subhanallah (Glory be to God), Allahuabkbar (God is the Greatest) and Alhamdulillah (Praise be to God), 33 times each after (each of the daily) prayer(s), finishing 100 by saying "There is no god but Allah alone, having no partner, Sovereignty is his, all Praise is his, and he has Ability over all things", such a person will be forgiven their sins, even if they are expansive as the foam of the sea"

    Generic designs have a hundred beads often made with wood, but also of olive seeds, ivory, amber, pearls or plastic. This particular tasbih is made of wood with numerous silver balls stamped into the wood. In addition it has three cloth beads wrapped with silver thread, one of which is in focus here.
