Sapphire-by-the-sea :

Are the Hamsa and the hand of Fatima the same symbol?
What do they symbolize in their cultures?

nothing, he was the prophet’s uncle and that is it. and fatima was his daughter, but neither one signifies anything. people name their children hamza and fatima, because they were good muslims, but people also name their children: aisha, bilal, muhammed, ahmed, omar, ali, sumayyah, etc. so there is nothing special about them in particular

where did you hear this falsehood from? who ever told you that lied to you.
