Ebony Tasbih | 9 x 8 mm Spherical Segment Beads (Large)


Description of 9 x 8 mm Ebony Wood Tasbih

Ebony is a deep, black colored dense wood that emits a glossy luster that can feel metallic once it is shined. Its unique characteristics has made the wood of ebony, which belongs to the genus Diospyros, long sought after for many centuries. The genus name Diospyros itself is derived from the Greek dios and pyros, meaning divine grain. The ebony evergreen can take 70-200 years to reach maturity. For prayer beads, it has long been appreciated for its durability, softness to touch and its beautiful color and shine. Symbolically, ebony is a symbol of protection, majesty as well as modesty.
The color black has also come to represent for many Muslims, the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (AS) in Karbala.
It is with great pleasure that Rumi’s Garden, through its cooperation with a 5th generation Cairo based guild, brings to you this ebony sibha. The tassels have been assembled by students of Al-Azhar university who have learnt the secret of their craft from their ancestors.
