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.
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.
