Tasbih beads, also known as Baadhan, are an integral part of the Islamic religion. They are known as a kind of “sacred thread,” and are said to be worn by the angels of the four holy mosques. This is why they are used in prayers by so many people throughout the world today. They are considered an auspicious, protective amulet against evil and death, and are held in high regard by the Hindus and Buddhists. They are widely used throughout Asia as well, with religious groups using them for protection from evil spirits, and to ward against evil.
Tasbih is an amulet made of five-lined vines that are wrapped around a bamboo stick, or into a cloth pouch that is tied around the neck. In ancient times, it was used to ward off evil, but through the ages it has been adapted to be used in ceremonies and spells as well. According to one story, the original tasbih string had a single string, but through much alteration and personalization, the strings of tasbih beads have been woven into hundreds of strands. They are usually made from cotton, silk, or polyester fibers, and they are made into a single unit of five-lined vines that make up the body of the tasbih rope, and a single unit of ten-lined vines that make up the neckline.
The actual pronunciation of tasbih is “tasmah-bee-uhl,” which literally means, “a string of beads.” However, the actual word is a little more complicated. According to Arabic and Hebrew sources, the word is closer to tarmac (in the sense of “a knot”) and ashtray (a small hook). Regardless of its actual pronunciation, the pronunciation of tasbih is always close to the word “tasmah.”
In traditional Islamic cultures, tasbih is a highly auspicious ritual. It is used to decorate mausoleum murals. Also referred to as muskans, these murals are installed inside houses to bring good luck and protection. Traditionally, they are done with silk tasbih beads, silk muskans, silk drapes, and other fine furnishings. Today, tasbih is a popular decorative item in home decors. You can find them in contemporary homes as well as in traditional Islamic settings.
Tasbih stringed items are usually made using three types of tasbeeh beads. First, the basic, all-purpose tasbih beads. These are available in a variety of beautiful styles, which are elegantly simple. They come in circular, square, and triangular shapes. Often, you can even customize your tasbih beads to make them more unique and special to your needs.
Second, tasbih strings. The tasbih beads used for tasbih stringed products are intricately designed. They are covered with gold threads that are tightly pulled. When you pull these strings, it creates a complex design or texture on the tasbih beads. They can be used to decorate furniture, window panels, and even floor rugs.
And third, tasbih coated items. Coated tasbih beads have been treated with a special coating that protects them from damage. The coating prevents scratches and helps to keep the color and texture vibrant. Some coated items also have tiny holes cut out so that you can put pins into them to hang things on. These items look beautiful because they are durable and yet deliciously beautiful.
The above descriptions are just a small sample of the tasbih jewelry available. You can get them in many different tasbih string styles and colors. If you prefer one color over the other, you can have them dyed. Even if you want to mix and match, you can do that with tasbih beads. You can wear your tasbih jewelry in a variety of ways to create unique, individual looks that will reflect your personal style.
