Footnotes

  • In Islam, bismillah prayer beads are referred to as Misbaha or Tasbih or Sibha, and contain 99 beads, corresponding to the 99 Names of Allah. Sometimes only 33 beads are used, in which case one would cycle through them three times to equal 99. The beads are traditionally used to keep count while saying the prayer known as Tasbih of Fatima, which was a form of prayer offered as a gift by the Prophet Muhammad to his daughter Fatima, which is recited as follows: 34 times "Allahu Akbar" (God is the greatest), 33 times "Al-hamdu lilah" (Praise be to God), and 33 times "Subhan Allah" (Glory be to God). It is highly recommended to recite this prayer after the daily 5 ritual prayers.
