On Wearing Prayer Beads around the Neck

Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him).

Is it acceptable to wear a subhah (prayer beads) around my neck?

It is preferable not to do so, particularly in gatherings of remembrance and around other people. There is no harm wearing it in private when reciting the Qur’an or in prayer.
