Q 1: What is the
ruling of Islam on using Tasbih beads that are made of precious gems
taking into consideration that some beads are made of pure gold, inlaid with diamonds, rubies and corals. Is it preferable to say Tasbih (saying: "Subhan Allah [Glory be to Allah]") by fingers or by using beads made of precious gems?
It is permissible to use beads as there is no evidence found prohibiting their usage. However, it is impermissible to use beads made of gold or silver, or even ornamented with gold or silver in accordance with the evidence which proves the unlawfulness of their usage.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
