The Hand of Fatima

Also known as Hamsa hand, comes from the word khamsah (arabic: خمسة‎),  which means five in arabic. It is a popular symbol throughout the Middle East and northern Africa, particularly within the Islamic and Jewish faiths. Early use of the hamsa has been traced to the Phoenicia civilization that spread across the Mediterranean between 1550 – 330 BC. The Phoenicians used an image of the hand of Tanit, the chief diety of their capital Carthage (modern day Tunisia), was used to ward off the evil eye. 
This name Fatima is after Fatima Zahra, daughter of the Prophet Muhammad. The five fingers of the hand are further associated with the Five Pillars of Islam. While Qu'ran law prohibits the wearing of charms and amulets, the Hamsa symbol is often depicted in and associated with Islamic cultures. 
The Hand of Fatima represents femininity. It is referred as the woman’s holy hand. It is believe to be having extraordinary characteristics that use to protect people from evil and other dangers. This relates to the belief that God exists in everything.
