The Hand of Fatima is an Islamic icon known as the Khamsa, meaning ‘five’. Fatima is prophet Mohamed’s daughter and predecessor of the Fatmids of North Africa, who later ruled Egypt and founded Al-Qahira (Cairo) in 969. Fatima’s symbolic amulet is the open palm representing truth & protection. Fatmid beliefs merged with Kemetic Egyptian mythology, as her hand holds the Eye of Re. Also used in Jewish and Hindu symbology.
