  • I am risking sounding utterly stupid by asking this but here it goes...
    What does "Tasbeha" mean?
    I am an Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido member and I found this page while I was browsing through the copticnetwork.net. I joined because it is a network for oriental orthodoxy members.
    I have never given much thought to the name of this website, "Tasbeha" until I noticed it being repeated in many of the discussions on coptic church and I think it has a deep meaning...
  • It's an arabic word that simply means 'praise' as a noun. 
  • Selam my Ethiopian friend, 

    Tasbeha = 
    ስብሓት

    I take it can be either praise or glory, in this sense glorification (doxology). 

    Look at me trying to translate Arabic, what do I know...

  • hey, theophilus1,
    great to 'see' you. please don't pull all of your hair out, your amharic and tigrinya is better than mine!
    temesgen Fitari!

    (something like 'praise God' in bad tigrinya)
    :-)
  • mabsoota
    it's actually in amharic and it's not bad at all
    Thank you everybody
  • Tasbeha=the praise(noun) is coming from tasbeeh=praising and sobh=praise(noun).
    glory=magd
