This is the Tase Elraabe.

When my grandmother travelled to Saudi Arabia, she bought something called (Tase Elraabe) which means The sacred cup. It’s a cup with letters from the Quran printed on it, when someone is really scared they drink from it. Its kind of a religious thing Muslims do. The cup (Tase Elraabe) is very famous in the Arab world. My grandmother gave it to my dad, he always keeps it in our house. My parents believe it would keep us safe from any harm that could affect us. It’s important to my grandmother because it reminds her of when she traveled to Saudi Arabia.
