The coquilla nut comes from a magnificent palm that takes approximately a hundred years to grow to maturity. The tree emanates from swampy lands and, along with leaves that can grow up to 12 meters long, it produces a nut which has become a popular material used in prayer beads for its durability as well as its multiple benefits.
Within Islamic folkloric tradition, it has been passed down that the Safina (Ark) of Prophet Nuh (AS) was constructed of the coquilla palm although some scholars, such as Abd Allah ibn Abbas (RAA), claimed it was made of teak wood. Whatever it may be, many spiritual masters and Islamic traditional medicine practitioners have expounded on the health and spiritual advantages of kuk nut. One of its characteristics is that the beads of a coquilla nut tasbih retains the energy of the dhikr (remembrance of God) and acts as an amulet for protection.
