The hamsa (meaning “Five” in Arabic) is an amulet in the from of an open palm , intended to ward off the evil eye and enhance good Fortune.
In Islamic tradition , it symbolizes the “hand of Fatima” , the prophet Muhammad , as well as the five tenets of Islam (each represented by one of the fingers) : faith , prayer , charity , fasting , and pilgrimage.
In Judaism , it has come to be associated with the five Books of Moses , God’s name (indicated by the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet) , and the spreading of the fingers during the Priestly Blessing.
The types of hamsas  very in the specific arrangement of the fingers – whether outspread or tightly bound ,  symmetrical or naturalistic – and in the addition of ornaments , such as eyes , animals , or inscriptions , also believed to carry beneficial powers.
