Tasbiha (or prayer beads) are a significant part of the Islamic culture all over the world. From providing sentimental value to being a source of comfort, the Tasbiha can be found in every household.
The Palestinian Tasbiha is made using beads in red, green, and black; the colours of the Palestinian flag.
The origin of these beads can be traced back to multiple theories, the most common being that a string of 99 beads represents each name of Allah. While subha consisting of 33 beads relate to a Hadith that calls on Muslims, after they have prayed, to repeat Subhan Allah (glorious is God) 33 times, Alhamdulillah (all praise be to God) 33 times and Allahu Akbar (God is great) 33 times.
