Muslim prayer beads are usually called Misbaha or Tesbih. Muslims use these beads as a guide, when they pray. “Tesbih” is the Islamic word for prayer beads or rosary. It originated from the word “Supha” which means to announce the glories of God (pronounced in Arabic as Allah), and this is exactly what Muslims do when they pray with Misbaha beads.
These Islamic prayer beads are composed of 33 beads. During prayer, Muslims recite the 99 names of Allah (God) by going through the set of 33 beads three times.. Some prayer beads are composed of 99 beads.They serve the same purpose, but to recite the 99 names of Allah, they go through the beads only once.
This is how the Misbaha or Tesbih is usually prayed – it begins by reciting “Allahu Akbar” 33 times. Translated, the phrase means “God is the greatest.” It is followed by reciting “Al-hamdu lilah” (Praise be to God) 33 times , then followed by “Subhan Allah” (Glory be to God), recited 33 times. This prayer is usually recited after Muslims have completed their 5 daily ritual prayers.
