Saudi Arabia’s flag carrier Saudia has introduced the world’s first sanitising prayer beads ahead of the holy month of Ramadan and the start of the Umrah pilgrimage season. Saudi Arabia normally sees the largest influx of guests and Umrah pilgrims in the year during this period.

According to a press statement by Saudia, Protectasbih  are the first prayer beads that offer a dual function, combining the spiritual practice of tasbih with the added benefit of hand sanitisation.

It adds that the prayer beads use tea tree oil as a sanitising element as it is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria and disrupts the cell membrane of the bacteria itself. Using a moulding technique, the oil was integrated into a semi-solid compound to create a solid bead.

“At Saudia, our commitment to the well-being of all our guests is paramount. We take pride in introducing a unique product that enhances the pilgrimage experience, allowing our guests to fully immerse themselves in their spiritual journey,” says Essam Akhonbay, VP Marketing at Saudia.

The airline says that new innovative products will be available on board for all Saudia guests to ensure a healthier and sanitary pilgrimage journey. Protectasbih were also distributed out across the holy city of Makkah.
