When a girl gives you a rosary, what does she mean!?
In Islam, prayer beads are referred to as Misbaha, Tasbih or Sibha and contain 99 beads, corresponding to the Names of God in Islam. The beads are traditionally used to keep count while saying the prayer known as the "Tasbih of Fatimah", which was a form of prayer offered as a gift by Muhammad to his daughter, which is recited as follows: 33 times "Subhan Allah" (Glory be to God), 33 times "Al-hamdu lilah" (Praise be to God), and 34 times "Allahu Akbar" (God is the greatest). It is highly recommended to recite this prayer after the daily five ritual prayers.
I wrote a hub on Anglican prayer beads and how other religions use beads or knots in prayer and meditation.
I have given them as gifts for various reasons:
1 - because they are religious and would appreciate it
2 - because they would benefit from "worry beads" to meditate
3 - they're pretty and often works of art
4 - it's a subtle way of saying "take a chill pill"
Whatever the reason - don't read too much into it! Say Thank You for the gift and either use them, put them in your drawer, or regift. No big deal, right?
