What is a Tasbih and what is its purpose?

Tasbih is a term used to describe prayer beads, which serve various purposes such as aiding in prayer, meditation, and setting reminders known as "mudhakkira." These beads are intended to be a constant companion, and they are utilized in numerous cultures to foster well-being, balance, and protection.


How many beads are in a Tasbih?

The tasbih consists of a string of 99 beads that are looped into a circle. The two ends are passed through the larger, decorative bead where they are tied or woven into a knot - also known as the starting point of a tasbih. The larger bead at the tasbih's crown is called an imam which means 'leader' and it is so called because all recitations start at this point.
