The hamsa hand has a wide variety of different spellings which include hamesh, hamsa, chamsa, and khamsa. It is also identified as the Hand of Miriam, Aaron and Moses’s sister, and the Hand of Fatima. 

The hamsa hand has two main styles. One style is shaped like a regular hand, and the other has two symmetrical thumbs; the second of the two styles being the most popular. The wearer of the hamsa hand can wear it facing up or down and it is believed to give the owner success, harmony, and protection from the Ayin Ha’ra, also known as the evil eye. Reflecting inner vision and understanding, the hamsa hand sometimes includes an eye symbol. It is commonly used in jewelry and as decorative adornment.

The hamsa hand has a variety of meanings and interpretations, depending on the culture. The word, hamsa, derives its name from the five fingers on the hand. In Hebrew, the number five is hamesh and the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Hey, one of God’s holy names. Hamesh is representative of the five books of the Torah. In Judaism, it is also interpreted to be the Hand of Miriam, and symbolic of the owner’s five senses in an effort to praise God. In Arabic, it is khamesh. In the Sunni culture, the hamsa is associated with the Five Pillars of Islam. For the Shi’tes, it symbolizes the Five People of the Cloak. In the Islamic faith, it symbolizes as The Hand of Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet Mohammed.
