Photographer's Note

Tasbih (تسبيح) is a form of dhikr that involves the repetitive utterances of short sentences glorifying God, in Islam. To keep track of counting either the phalanges of the right hand or a misbaha is used. The tasbih is similar to the komboskini of the Eastern Church and the rosary in the Roman Catholic Church. (Wikipedia)

This man had his suitcase open and was selling Tasbih all day long just outside the Aleppo's souq, not far from the Citadel.
