Moslem praying beads: what they are and what they are used for

Bold, opaque goldbrown chestnut gemstone, the lightest of Iran' turquoises and white corals. Surrounded by a beautiful green sandstone, the subhas or misbahas, prayers or worries pearls, or any of the other Middle Eastern faces, are hanging with pride in the Madinat Zayed Shopping Centre jewellers' window, a welcome application of color in the midst of a gilded ocean.

The pearls, used by some in prayer and inspired by Islam in their form, are for many a way to unwind, to disconnect from the while. The 34-year-old Jalal, a Yemenite ex-patriate whose private company houses a considerable museum in the German capitol, is a consolation for many, from sensible value to relaxation.

Hidden in single frayed sacks of scarlet and golden, others bundled, the store offers pearls of verdant sunflower seeds, brown corals and garnets at a price from a few hundred dirham to several thousand, according to the number of pearls, their ages and stones. Subhas made of either pink or orange usually have the highest price, and the best ones, says Jalal, come from Russia and Germany.

You should never be far from Yemen or Saudi Arabia for yuzr (black coral) and the best wood pearls come from Sudan. There is a chain of 99 pearls representing each name of Allah in Islam. Whereas subhas, made up of 33 pearls, refer to a hadeeth inviting Muslims after prayer to reiterate subhanalah (glorious is God) 33fold, lhamdulillah (all praises be to God) 33fold and Allahu Akbar (great is God) 33fold.

No matter what their background story is, care beads leave Najib, "a jeweler from a jeweler from a jeweler", peace of mind. What do you want? You' re trying it once, no matter what your worries, you' re feeling carefree. That', he says when he grabs a pearl necklace in his coat pocket,'these'.

To swing a small amount of dark-colored pearls, although the sunflower seeds are not quite so good, he says, it comes quite near. "She is the Empress of Mizbaha. Bernstein is the best for those who know these[worry pearls]," says Najib, who works most of his time in a jewelry store in Madinat Zayed.

Genuine sunflower seeds, when grated between your thumbs and index fingers, release the scent of pinewoods. Some vendors at Madinat Zayed offer a certificate of origin for pearls. Najib, who possessed innumerable pearls during his life, finds them all "excellently calming". Do you know what it's like without anything," he says as he lets his pearls drop onto the desk and shakes his hands in the sky with a smile.

The other gemstones used are achate, daalmatian and, if you have the money, diamond. Najib says the most beautiful of the diamond, or the easiest of the rocks, it doesn't make any difference. "There is a philosophie behind trouble pearls. Whoever' s got care pearls, it's a token that I' m a carefree man.
