BasmalaBeads crafts the finest prayer beads for those of us who appreciate the importance of seeking life's most precious gifts through beauty.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I've been using beads as a part of my path for over 40 years, and I can say without any hesitation that this set is the finest I've ever used. I've already run thousands of rounds and have come to feel very close to this Misbaha. I may find myself purchasing more than one for the simple artistry of them. They may seem pricey, but in my opinion they're worth every single penny.

“The craftsmanship alone in the beads makes them some of the most beautiful on the market. I bought two pairs for my wife and I several months ago, she really loves them. Durable, elegant, made with all natural products. We're so happy with our beads we bought 3 more as gifts! The boxes they come in make the perfect gifts.”

“Excellent Islamc prayer beads. I'm used to the cheap Chinese made ones but this took my breath away. It is top quality and it is big compared to conventional ones. It feels amazing in my hands. ...It also seems pretty sturdy and it is light. It comes in a nice box. Definitely worth the price, this is like a piece of jewelry to me which hopefully if it lasts, I'll have my kids inherit it. Btw this would make an excellent b-day gift.”
