‣ 100 Year Guarantee ~ This set will be the last you ever need. Guaranteed. If it’s our fault that your set breaks we’ll fix it or replace it for free for 100 years under our warranty. Why 100 years? We want you to pass these on to whoever is next in line and trust that we will take care of them just like we did with you.
‣ Made by Hand ~ This set is handmade by a master craftsman. Once it's in your hands you'll know that there is simply no comparison to cheap factory-made imitations. Simply looking at this wondrous set will inspire you.
‣ Premium African Blackwood ~ No paints. No dyes. The black you see is made from 100% premium African Black Wood. One of the most luxurious woods in the world, it was used by ancient Egyptians as a currency, carved into cups for the royalty of the kings of India, and the wood of choice for traditional Islamic crafts.
‣ Signature Anatolian Style ~ Heavily influenced by the Ottoman prayer bead tradition, our Anatolian classic beads are sleek and extremely pleasing to the eye. With its 100 beads and unique 10 bead counter, this timeless style is as practical as it is beautiful.
‣ Adjustable Tautness ~ Do you prefer your Tasbih to be a little loose? Or do you like your Islamic prayer beads to be very taught? Good news! This set is adjustable. Simply pull the adjuster bead (found directly above the minaret ) up to make it looser or down to make the beads tighter. Gone are the days of beads that don’t quite feel right in your hands.
‣ Count up to 1000 repetitions ~ Now you can count up to 1000 zikr repetitions without getting tangled in a 20 ft. long set. After every 100 recitations simply move one of the 10 counters beads up. The counter beads are found directly above the adjuster bead and the minaret.
‣ 33% To Charity ~ BasmalaBeads has and always will donate 33% of all profits. We know very well that the world's greatest investments are found in that which is given not acquired.
‣ The Perfect Gift ~ We find handmade premium prayer beads to be the most meaningful and touching gifts money can buy. Nothing says "I love you" like the gift of remembrance.
‣ Fair-trade ~We take great pride in employing underprivileged women and men and giving them very competitive compensation: helping them make an honest living. This is a sacred art so we do our best to pay and treat our team very well. We are in the business of love so it starts at home!
‣ Made in Small Batches ~ To ensure quality, all BasmalaBeads are made in small batches. This means that our quality is amazing. It also means that we sell out quickly! Once an item sells out, it often takes us a considerable amount of time to replenish. Good things take time. Don't miss out!
‣ Affordable ~ While our prices may seem quite high to someone who is not familiar with the market value of premium handcrafted Islamic prayer beads, our prices are actually very reasonable considering the quality and materials.
Handcrafted Islamic prayer beads are quite difficult to make and even more difficult to master. A single set can sometimes require the direct attention of 4 specialized craftsmen to complete.
Furthermore, we insist on paying our craftsmen and women honorable wages. It wouldn't be right to create instruments of intimate devotion in a sweatshop with underpaid workers. Fair-trade is not an optional matter for us, it's a principle-based condition.
If you are not convinced, let us add one more important note. Our prayer beads are guaranteed for life. Meaning that this could quite possibly be the last set you ever purchase. If you are a regular user of Islamic prayer beads (tasbih) our sets will undoubtedly pay for themselves. Cheap imitations have a life of 6 months- 2 years with regular use and can cost anywhere from E£160.99EGP-$25. Do the math :)
