    Thank you for taking the time out to answer. How would you go about distancing yourself from those who deviate you from the righteous path and in the long term stop you becoming a better person?
    One could: hang around with others, start discussion on certain subjects of religion, etc.

    My opinion is irrelevant but

    There's gonna be people that say it's bid'ah and those that say it's not. Both sides have plenty of evidence that they'll be happy to shove down your throat. Look at both sides and make a decision

    P.S: Generally certain sects say different things, seems appropriate to go with the one you're in to avoid confusion (they'll have their evidence dw). If not in a sect then nvm lol

    Is it best to avoid something that some say is bid'ah?
    Thing is I find it difficult to keep count whilst trying to concentrate on what I'm saying and reflecting on it so I like using them as the counting's done for me...I'm making myself sound a bit dim but Idc :/

    If it helps you connect with your Lord, I really don't see the problem (unless the prophet explicitly forbade it).

    I'd be interested to know if those who say beads are biddah don't use counters either, and their rationale on the difference if they do use them.

    It depends on whether it is outright condemned, and what the reasoning is. I'd just follow a view of a reliable shaykh. I am not personally averse to their use, but I don't use them anyway. I think, really, this sums up all that one needs to know:

    (Original post by islamqa)
    Al-Shaykh Muhammad ibn Salih al-‘Uthaymeen (al-Liqa al-Maftooh, 3/30) was asked whether using the masbahah for tasbeeh is bid’ah, and his reply was: “It is better not to do tasbeeh with the masbahah, but it is not bid’ah, because there is a basis for it, which is the fact that some of the Sahabah (Companions) did tasbeeh with pebbles. But the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught us that tasbeeh with the fingers is better, as he said, ‘Count with the fingertips, for they will be made to speak.’ Doing tasbeeh with the masbahah is not haram (impermissible) or bid’ah, but it is better not to do it, because the one who does tasbeeh with the masbahah has shunned something better. Using the masbahah may also be contaminated with some element of showing off, because we see some people carrying masbahahs that contain a thousand beads, as if they are telling people, ‘Look at me, I do a thousand tasbeehs!’ Secondly, those who use the masbahah for tasbeeh are usually absent-minded and not focused, so you see them doing tasbeeh with the beads, but their gaze is wandering all over the place, which indicates that they are not really concentrating. It is better to do tasbeeh with one’s fingers, preferably using the right hand rather than the left, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to count his tasbeeh on his right hand. If a person counts his tasbeeh using both hands, there is nothing wrong with that, but it is better to use the right hand only.”
