A Tasbih is a prayer bead
that Ismaili Muslims use in congregation and is a representation of Allah’s 99 beautiful names like: The Creator, The Omni Present, The Most Merciful, The All Knowing, The Forgiver, The Beneficent, The Protector, The Master, The Gate of Knowledge, The One who speaks the truth and so on.
As I string each Tasbih, I say a prayer that the recipient of each Tasbih benefits. As well, they have healing powers from the stones and crystals that are used. I have a few running collections – Harmony, Inspiration, Amethyst, Pear lmania, Love, Infinity and Unity. Some of the stones that have been used are amethyst, pearl, lapis lazuli, aquamarine, moonstone, rose quartz, sapphire, and onwards.
These Tasbihs are not only meant for prayer and the spiritual connection but also can be worn as fashionable pieces either as a necklace or a bracelet. They make for the perfect gift for any occasion and everyone can wear them.
