In Jewish culture, hamsa is known as the Hand of Miriam, sister of Moses, and is believed to bring good luck. Hamsa also means five in Hebrew and this is said to symbolize the five books of Torah. In Islamic culture, hamsa is called the Hand of Fatima, who is Prophet Muhammad's daughter and is believed to bring good luck as well. The five fingers of the hamsa symbolize the five pillars of Islam. In Hinduism, the hamsa represents the chakras and their mudras (hand gestures) that direct the flow of energy and the five senses.
