A Matter of Fortune in Religions

The Hand of Fatima, also known as Hamsa, draws its roots from the Arabic word Hamse, which means five. In Islam, it is the hand of the prophet Mohamed’s daughter Fatima; in Judaism it is the hand of Miriam, sister of the prophet Moses; for Levantine Christians it is the hand of the Virgin Mary; and for Hindus it is known as the Hand of Humsa. It is used to keep the devil at bay, and is also a symbol of bounty, fertility, patience and loyalty.

It is a Matter of…

Let’s start with the expression: No matter what your problem is, as long as the end result is good, it’s worth the wait. And end with our analysis that peace is everyone’s common wish. The key is to open your eyes and your heart to this world.

Gifting Reasons:

This is the perfect gift for when you want to protect those close to you from evil, or when close ones are going through difficult times and you want to express the feeling: “The end result of patience is salvation.” This is also a good gift option for someone you know who has started a new business, when you want to wish them success and prosperity. When you think of a “new business gift, housewarming gift, motivational gift, get well gift, wedding gift, birth gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift” this is the first thing that comes to mind.
