The Story of Hand of Fatima/Hamsa

The name Hand of Fatima comes from Fatima, the daughter of Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, and there is a story in the Islamic folklore.

One day Fatima was in the kitchen preparing dinner for her beloved husband. The door suddenly opened and her husband came in with a girl. After the introduction, Fatima found out that the girl was going to be her husband’s future second wife. She was so distraught that she didn’t even know she had dropped the wooden spoon in her hand and continued to stir the soup with her bare hands. The physical pain was far less than the grief in her heart. However, when Fatima’s husband rushed to her side and scolded her in surprise and distress, she suddenly sobered up from her confusion. This incident made her husband realize his wife’s great love for him, and he since learned that love cannot be hurt in any way.

Because of this story, the Hand of Fatima is also used as a talisman of love, guarding a love that is not easily obtained.
