Prayer Beads are becoming more and more popular. Many Pagan religions/paths/people use them as well as many non-catholic Christians do. The Native Americans were known for them. Now, a rosarie in particular with the cross, that is specifically a Christian tool (in most cases) although some Chrstian Wiccans use them as well...
I honestly couldn't tell you about Muslims, but since prayer beads are simply a tool used to keep track of repetative prayer, I don't see why they counldn't be used for almost any path.

Sabrina you wrote a key word that throws some into a frenzy. The word you used was repetitive. Those who use prayer beads use the word meditative. The beads do help you to keep track of where you are during these meditative prayers. While we say these prayers we are to meditate on certain things. BTW I'm not criticising you just trying to clear something up.

Prayer beads are common in many religions. They are a tool used to help focus the mind on prayer, in other words it's somewhat like meditating. Some people (like me) have a difficult time focusing their mind on the task at hand. Rosaries or prayer beads help you to do that.

Aasiyah. I've used my fingers before when a Rosary wasn't handy. It's not the beads but the intent of the prayer.
