No such thing in Judaism. There is no rosary or prayer beads in Judaism at all!

So the number according to Jews: ZERO

Yes, Hinduism has the same mala, and actually “doing japa” is considered to be an excellent way to gain control over one’s mind and concentrate on God.
I’ve been told that in China they did the beads, too, but it in olden days it was more associated with the higher classes.
In all beads, 108 is considered a perfect number, but shorter malas are sometimes worn around a wrist and just gone over again and again, doing as many prayers as possible in the time one has for prayer.

I THINK FOR ISLAM ITS EITHER 99,100,101

BUT USING BEADS IS ACTUALLY FROWNED UPON

AND BY THE WAY THEY USE THEM TO DO “ZIKR” (REMEBERANCE OF ALLAH)

THEY EITHER SAY:
SUBHANALLAH (GLORIFIED BE ALLAH)
ALLHUMDULILAH (ALL PRAISE AND THANKS ARE TO ALLAH)
ALLAHU AKBAR (ALLAH IS THE GREATEST)

OR
THE MOST HIGH 99 NAMES OF ALLAH

I would never go anywhere without it!”–Kevin. “We were taught that you must pray to God through Mary.”–Jeannine, a former Catholic nun. Is there a real basis for such confident reliance on the Rosary? Did God, Christ, or Mary recommend its use? What do history and God’s Sacred Word say about it? Most people who use the Rosary believe… Read more »

I know that Christianity (rosary) and Buddhism (japa mala) have them.

If Islam, Hinduism, and Judaism might have them, but I’ve never heard of them.
