Description

A string of 99 handmade wooden beads traditionally used during prayer.

In Islam, prayer beads are referred to as Misbaha (Arabic: مسبحة mas’baha ), Tasbih or Sibha and contain 99 normal-sized beads, (corresponding to the Names of God in Islam) and two smaller or mini beads separating every 33 beads. Sometimes only 33 beads are used, in which case one would cycle through them three times. The beads are traditionally used to keep count while saying the prayer.
