Fatima’s (SA) Tasbih (Rosary)
: It is written in “Makarem-ul-Akhlaq” that Fatima (SA) had a Tasbih made of woolen thread, which had 100 knots, and she used it to recite the Tasbih. When Hazrat Hamzah (Prophet’s (PBUH) uncle) was martyred, she used his soil for making Tasbih. After the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (AS), the people used his soil to make Tasbih. Imam Sadiq (AS) said: “The first Tasbih was our mother’s (i.e. Fatima’s (SA)) which was made of blue thread and after that, she made beads of Tasbih from the soil of Hamzah’s grave.
