In another post we saw this. We will see why 99.
Համրիչ-հոմանիշնեՐ= Տերողորմյա, համրոց, վարդարան. օրհնարան, համրակ, (բրբ.) խամբարք, թզբեհ: 2. Հաշւ|եսարք:
Why 99 beads?
One of the most cherished possessions of my father was his stringed amber beads., ՍԱԹԷ ՀԱՄՐԻՉ. My brother has it now.
A misbaḥah is a tool used to perform dhikr, including the 99 Names of Allah, . It is often made of wooden beads, but also of olive seeds, ivory, amber, pearls or plastic. A misbahah [b]usually consists of 99 beads sometimes 33 beads (in which case One cycles through them 3 times to equal 99).
Similar but not quite.
We would have so much fun with it. We would rub them together and smell that certain aroma, or use it as a static magnet to pick up shreds of paper or hair.
