Hand of Fatima superstition

Hand of Fatima.

The Hand of Fatima is an amulet representing the hand of the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad. It has spread throughout the Muslim world and far beyond..

The hand symbolizes, in the Islamic tradition, Providence.

It would seem that it has two thumbs on each side of the hand: indeed, they are two hands superimposed back to back. This indicates a symbol of hope, where each finger carries meaning.

Faith, prayer, pilgrimage, fasting, charity. These virtues feed the power of the eye which is located in the center of the hand.

The eye protects its wearer from bad luck.
