The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history. Particularly the open right hand, that also represents blessings, power, and strength. The hand can be depicted with the fingers spread apart to ward off evil, or as closed together to bring good luck. Used to protect against evil eye, a malicious stare believed to be able to cause illness, death, or just general unluckiness, hamsas often contain an eye symbol. The number five in Islam is connected to the open hand, the pentagram of the five senses, marriage, the Five Pillars of Islam, the five daily prayers, and the hand of Fatima.
