The history of the hand symbol is a long and fascinating one. Its use as a sign to protect predates Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Typically, the hand symbol is represented by the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history. The Hand symbol is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. In Islam, it is also known as the hand of Fatima, so named to commemorate Muhammad’s daughter Fatima Zahra (c. 605 or 615 – 633). In addition, the Levantine Christians call it the hand of Mary, for the Virgin Mary. Furthermore, Jews refer to it as the hand of Miriam in remembrance of the biblical Miriam, sister of Moses and Aaron.
To summarize, we can trace the origins of this ancient symbol, long into our history. Therefore, Disorder believes it doesn’t belong to any one group exclusively, it belong to us all. I see the Rainbow Hand as a powerful symbol of unity and protection for all against the evil eye.
