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
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.”
