Prayer Beads - Dhikr Beads
The word tasbih (also known as tesbih or misbaha) is a reference to prayer beads used by Muslims. The
word is related to supha or sebha, which means “to recite Allah’s glories.” Keeping a tasbih with you is a
beautiful way to both remember Allah and remind you to praise Him.
Usually, a tasbih has 99 beads, each one symbolizing one of the 99 most revered names of Allah. There
are also 33-bead tasbihs. After each set of 33 beads (in a 99-bead set), you will find a nisane, or a disc. In
a 33-bead tasbih, the discs are placed after every 11 beads. Most tasbihs have tassels, which are usually
made of string but are sometimes made of beads. The tassel, frequently attached to a large Alif/Imam
bead, hangs between the first set of beads and the last set.
Tasbihs are usually comprised of a range of beads or stones, precious or otherwise. Wooden beads are
the most common, and you will find them in a range of varieties - from fragrant sandalwood, tamarind,
citrus wood, coffee to ironwood. Sugar palm and petrified wood beads are also commonly available.
There was a time when tasbih beads were always handmade, but today you will find very few craftsmen
who do this. If you purchase a tasbih made of a fragrant wood, you will have to store it in a wooden box to
help retain its fragrance. Wood is often brought in from Africa, India and Egypt as well as South America
to make these beads. The original craftsmen were located primarily in Istanbul, and they sold to buyers
throughout the Islamic world.
Some praises Muslims commonly repeat using a tasbih are “Subhanallah,” which translates to "praise be
to Allah,” “Alhamdulillah,” which means "glory be to Allah,” “Allahuakbar,” which means “Allah is great,” and
“La ilahaillallah,” which means “there is no god but Allah.”
