Description of 8 x 8 mm Lightly Scented Olive Wood Tasbih
Then We produced for you therewith gardens of palms and vines wherein are many fruits for you and of them you eat and a tree issuing from the Mount of Sinai that bears oil and seasoning for all to eat.
(Quran, 23: 19-20)
The olive tree is a paradisal tree mentioned in the Quran on various occasions. Its symbolism is one of immortality, fruitfulness, peace and plenty as indicated from the Quranic verses above. In the Sunan of Ibn Majah, The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said in a hadith: ‘Season (your food) with olive oil and anoint yourselves with it, for it comes from a blessed tree.”
Olive trees can grow as tall as 15 meters in height. The diameter of these magnificent trees can reach up to 1.5 meters. The color of the olive wood is a creamy yellow with coffee brown contrasting wavy grains.
Rumi's Garden has had the immense pleasure of working with a fifth generation Islamic prayer bead guild, based in the city of Cairo, to produce this wonderful tasbih made from the blessed olive tree. Every piece of the sibha is made by hand and is completely unique. The tasseling was assembled, with dedication and love, by West African students from Al-Azhar university who make a living from their wonderful craft which they learnt as a family trade.
