A stylized human hand, the hand of Fatima, is said to represents Muhhamad's daughter Fatima, although some say it pre-dates Islam. The most common motif in Morocco, it offers protection again the evil eye, a protective amulet that represents blessings, power, and strength. The symbolism of the hand raised, palm outwards is to repel some threatened evil.
