Lifebuoy - Tasbih

The Lifebuoy we all know is a life-saving buoy that is thrown to a person in water to prevent them from drowning. This extremely suggestive description was an inspiration for me. People drown not only in water, they also drown in worldly life. My life buoy that I throw to a person drowning in the world is prayer beads, believing that they will be caught firmly. Prayer beads made by me are finished with an engraved medallion. On the medallion I decided to put the quote “Indeed I am near “ - Quran 2:186 This choice was influenced by the fact that the people I lent my helping hand always accepted the offer, but they always asked me Where is God ? I think that God himself gives the most beautiful and fullest answer to man

“And when My servants ask you, [o Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. ” - Quran 2 :186

That is why I wanted the person who looked at the beads to always notice the answer to their question and at the same time the certainty that God was close to them, no matter what happened in their lives. My first prayer beads were a gift received in the Mosque, appreciating this beautiful gesture, I decided to do that as well, giving them away as gifts.
