Shipments are fulfilled within 24 hours of your order and take approximately 7-10 business days to arrive.
13. Why do your Tasbih sell out so quickly?
Our craft is a very time-intensive one. It takes many days of diligent work to craft a quality Tasbih. This means that by definition all of our work is 'limited edition'. Some of our sets sell out within days of release, and although we do our best to meet this demand, the nature of our craft must be respected.
14. Do you have a physical store?
Currently, we only operate online at basmalabeads.com
Stay tuned for exciting announcements in this regard soon!
Our Tasbihs take hours of focused work, and we don't take any chances with unreliable shipping methods.
Shipping usually takes about 7 business days worldwide (note that if the product is marked as a pre-order that it may take a few weeks to prepare).
We'll cover all shipping costs for orders above $150.
Unlike many stores that offer free shipping, but ship through unreliable local post services, we only ship express.
We also pre-pay customs for all countries that let us do so.
The Abacus Counting System
Yes, that's right.
Start by counting to 500 using the main beads, once you finish 500 move one of the top counter beads.
There are 10 top-counter beads, so with 10 cycles of 500 counts, we are at 5,000!
Now for every completion of 5,00 counts, move the secondary counter one position (and reset the top counter) 5,000 x 10= 50,000.
Now for the quantum leap.
The secret lies in what we call the abacus bead (the single elongated bead that's tasseled on the main string).
For every 50,000 counts, move the Abacus bead one position and fasten it! Around all 500 of the main beads. 50,000 x 500= 25 MILLION.
