The Hamsa is a staple in many different cultures and religions. It is mainly known as an ancient Middle Eastern amulet that symbolizes the Hand of God. Another name for the Hamsa is The Hand of Fatima which is derived from the name of the daughter of the Prophet in Islamic beliefs. In all beliefs, the Hamsa hand is said to be a protective sign that brings happiness, luck, peace, good fortune and health to its user. It is also believed to ward off the ayin ha’ra, or the evil eye. Because of its thread between all religions, the Hamsa can represent unity. It is also greatly associated with a female entity that offers protection from evil and misfortune. The direction the hand faces also holds great significance. If facing upwards it is a sign against evil that repels negativity from others and from your own thoughts. If facing downwards it represents abundance and goodness and can welcome good things into one’s life.
