The talisman bearing the name "The Hand of Fatima" is very popular among residents of India, Israel and other Muslim states. In this article we will highlight in detail the meaning of the Hand of Fatima talisman, and also talk about its proper use.
Often, the armor of Fatima was guarded as an original souvenir by tourists who visited Turkey, Egypt or Israel. But this is not the whole list of countries whose inhabitants firmly believe in the power of an amulet. For foreigners will also be interesting information about the magical properties of this talisman.
The Hand of Fatima (also known by other names - The Hand of Miriam, Hamsa, Hamesh Palm). The talisman received its main name (Fatima’s hand) in honor of the Prophet’s daughter. There is also a legend explaining why the talisman is called that way.
So in the tales it is told that once the daughter of the prophet was engaged in cooking, while her husband Ali brought a new wife into the house. A woman, taken aback by such news, dropped her spoon and continued to interfere with the food with her hand, paying no attention to burns and physical pain. Since then, it is believed that the amulet Hand of Fatima is a symbol of faith and patience, and is able to give the described qualities to anyone who will wear it.
The ward has the appearance of a human hand with five fingers. Each of them personifies one of the participants of this legend, namely:
- big - symbolizes the prophet Mohammed;
- index - personifies his daughter Fatima;
- middle - unfaithful husband Ali;
- and the little finger and the nameless one are the sons of a couple Hussein and hasana.
Often, the central part of the talisman is represented by the star of David, a fish or a stone of blue hue. Quite often, the entire talisman is performed in one of these tones (Muslims give them protective properties). Also, the palm of Fatima is decorated with Jewish prayers or words from them.
what means amulet
From the very beginning, the Hand of Fatima acted as a symbol of faith and patience, but today it embodies the protection against negative impact (damage or the evil eye). This is the main reason that images of the eyes are often applied to the surface of the product (they symbolize this negative effect).
- In the Eastern States, the Fatima Palm is often used as a popular plot for creating jewelery.
- Residents of Egypt are confident that the amulet can not only protect against the evil eye and black witchcraft, but also fill its owner with power, power, blessing from above.

- Hindus believe that the Hand of Fatima will drive away failure from its owner.
In addition, the Palm of Fatima is a religious symbol among Muslims and Jews. It also acts as a symbol of similarity between all world religions and their common origins. Very often, charms in the form of hands were used by many ethnic groups, denoting power and strength, as well as fate and the right choice of life. It is believed that by purchasing this amulet, you can go to the correct path of the life line.
The amulet bought at the store will remain just a beautiful thing that does not have magical properties. And in order to turn the decoration into a talisman, you need to activate it, charging it with your personal energy. Only in this situation, you can be sure of his help.
Activation is possible through the reading of a special prayer, used since ancient times by the inhabitants of the east. Prayer will charge Hamsa with energy.

"Hand of Fatima, close access to sorrows
Protect me from the difficulties of fate
Get rid of all strife
Fill my life with joy, peace and blessings. "
