WEFOUNDHand of Isis


The hamsa ( Arabic : خمسة ‎ khamsah , Hebrew : חַמְסָה ‬, also romanized khamsa , Berber languages : ⵜⴰⴼⵓⵙⵜ tafust ), is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings. [1] [2] Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many times throughout history, the hamsa is believed by some, predominantly Jews, Christians and Muslims, to provide defense against the evil eye . It has been theorized that its origins lie in Ancient Egypt or Carthage (modern-day Tunisia) and may have been associated with the Goddess Tanit . [3]

The Hamsa is also variously known as the Hand of Fatima after the daughter of the prophet Muhammad , [7] the Hand of Mary , the Hand of Merriam , and the Hand of the Goddess .

This relates to the belief that God exists in everything. Another meaning of this symbol relates to the sky god, Horus. It refers to the eye of Horus, which means humans cannot escape from the eye of conscience. It says that the sun and moon are the eyes of Horus. The Hand of Fatima also represents femininity, and is referred as the woman's holy hand. It is believed to have extraordinary characteristics that can protect people from evil and other dangers.
