Once a thriving tradition, Islamic prayer beads crafting is now a fading art. With only a few surviving capable artisans around the world and the introduction of cheap imitations, it is only a matter of time before this tradition is lost. BasmalaBeads aims to revive, preserve and enrich the art of fine Islamic prayer beads by making them accessible to all. 

Over the past 4 years BasmalaBeads has grown to be one of the most recognizable Islamic arts brands in the West. We pay exceptional attention to detail and commit to producing work that is beautiful, durable, and most importantly: true to the tradition.

The Perfect Gift

BasmalaBeads® make a profound and thoughtful gift. Not only are they stunningly beautiful and durable but they symbolize a deep and loving relationship. All of our products come in handmade deluxe gift boxes.

Time-Tested Durability

BasmalaBeads® are made with exceptional materials that deliver timeless beauty and unparalleled durability, so you can pass them on to your kids, grand-kids, or whoever else is blessed to be next in line.

Our Founders

Mohammad Sirajudeen and Raheel Aref started BasmalaBeads in 2016 seeking to revive the vanishing art of Islamic prayer beads. They are both students of the sacred sciences with a passion for sharing the gems of the Islamic tradition with all those who cross their paths. 

Giving back

Since the very birth of BasmalaBeads we have made it a point to donate 33% of  our profits to charity.

We also take great care in employ underprivileged women and men with very competitive compensation- helping them make an honest and respectful living. 

When you purchase a set of BasmalaBeads, you are not only contributing towards a charitable cause, but also helping the most vulnerable members of our society get back on their feet.
