The Tasbih according to the Wahhabi Sect

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Wahhabis tell us that the use of the tasbih is a bid’ah, and it is haram.  They need to be reminded that there are swahih ahadits where Sayyidina Abu ‘Abdullah Salman al-Farisi (r.a.) used pebbles to count, and other swahabah counted the grove lines of their fingers when engaged in dzikr.  According to this Wahhabi reasoning then, the object which makes this a bid’ah is the implementation of the string used to hold the beads together.

So, we ask these Wahhabis, what makes string so impure that it can be used to hold things together, tie up and secure animals and property, even one’s attire, but cannot hold a few beads together to assist one in his enumerations of the remembrance of Allah (s.w.t.)?  What is so special about the string that makes it kufr?

When we break down the objections of the Wahhabi sect to the established practices of Sunni Islam, they are always incongruent.  That is because their claim of “pure” Islam is based on lies and polytheism.  Lies can never be congruent.
