THE EVIL EYE & HAND OF FATIMA
Belief in the evil eye began with the early civilizations of the Mediterranean Sea. The evil eye is a curse believed to be casted by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when she/he is unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury. Talismans created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called evil eyes.
Today, the evil eye is popular as a protective charm in both Middle Eastern and western cultures.
An evil eye can be found on some forms of the Hamsa hand (also known as the hand of Fatima or hand of Tanit). The word hamsa means “five” in Arabic, referring to the fingers of the hand. Early use of the Hamsa hand has been traced to the Phoenicia civilization that spread across the Mediterranean between 1550-330 BC. The Phoenicians used an image of the goddess Tanit, the chief deity of their capital Carthage (modern day Tunisia), to ward off the evil eye.
The belief in the evil eye and the Hamsa hand varied across different regions and periods but the idea expressed by them caused many different cultures to pursue protective measures. No longer just talismans, the evil eye and the Hamsa hand have instead become symbols of hope and peace in the modern world
The hamsa (Arabic: خمسة, romanized: khamsa, Hebrew: חַמְסָה, romanized: ḥamsā) is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout North Africa and in the Middle East and commonly used in jewellery and wall hangings.
Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many times throughout history, the hamsa has been traditionally believed to provide defense against the evil eye.

Khamsah is an Arabic word that means “five”, but also refers to images of “the five fingers of the hand”. In Jewish culture, the hamsa is associated with the number five because of the five fingers depicted on the hand.
The Hamsa has also been known as the Hand of Fatima after the daughter of Muhammad
To everyone who publishes children’s photos on Facebook. Dangers of the evil eye
By Teacher & Preacher
Let my tell you first beloved brothers and sisters that sharing pictures of children on the Internet, will cause you afflictions with scourges, because they have been appointed and well chosen and because we often do not protect them with legal licentiousness or invocation precautions..
Yes Allah protects us true but with what he gave us as adkar and invocations not by being armless and saying Allah protects. Both religious and universal laws go hand in hand.
We cannot imagine soldiers against enemies without weapons…
And listen my brothers and sisters, to the following evidence:
1. In Quran prophet of Allah Jacob was afraid about his son Joseph and asked him not to tell his dreams (that He was appointed prophet) to his brothers because of envy from them. He also said to all of his sons when they were about to set off for Egypt: ((Do not enter from one door and enter from different doors)) Surat Joseph.
If Jacob peace be upon him was afraid of the evil eye, what do you think of me and you.
2. Not everyone who laughs in your face, his heart is pure and some people are hateful and malicious.
So we have to cover the lantern of the lamp with glass so that the wind does not extinguish it.
I mean, do not reveal your secrets for everyone keep them and let’s live happiness in our homes.
I have advised dozens here on facebook who publish the pictures of innocence (children) and they just accepted my advice after hearing evidence from me ..
You should know dear friends that one of the most serious things that afflicted most of us in this era is the bareness of houses,
👉some of them for example say: I am outside the house on a picnic I am at the airport .. Or depicts you his new luxury car or post images the best cooked food and publish it of course they don’t publish beans or lentils but pizza hhhh
.. or they tell you: we are in the excellent market. and so on
In rural areas, for example, we have a famous proverb that says that the closed mouth never lets flies in.
What is evil eye?
They are hatred and hatred in the hearts of filthy impure people
The eyes do not hit of course but devils do
demons is the one who lives in such filthy impure hearts and thus cause others harm and 80% even deaths as will come soon below with proofs.
So, as for the hadeeth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“Evil-eye is true. It puts a camel in a cooking pot and a man in grave.”
(Kashfu’l-Khafa, 2: 76, narrated Abu Naim).
The meaning is a beautiful transportation means or vehicle car or camel may be envied and so broken. but as for the camel may be broken too and slaughtered to be put in a put in a pot as food!
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
” The majority of my Ummah that die after pre-destination is of the eye.
Narrated by al-Bukhaari
Even the good dreams, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade
to tell all them to all people.. because if we do we may be deprived of the positive outcomes of those dreams and only bad negative things will happen,
Psychology says think positive you will find positive and vice versa
we also know that people are different in hatred and hypocrisy.
The man may harm even his son or even himself with admirable words.
I have read in the hadeeth that a Sahabi harmed his fellow only because admiration and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) ordered him to wash and pour on his brother from the bucket that he washed from.
It is also wise not to talk about the achievements and blessings of your father in front of an orphan and the banks full of currency with poor people and so on ..
But someone may say that precautions cannot push back fate and things are “written on us” and that God loves to see the grace of his slave upon him, but we respond to him by saying :
Yes, precautions cannot push back fate but Prophet said: “depend on Allah in fulfilling your needs through secrecy”
and thus he peace be upon him guides us to take precautions too for ourselves because people are like metals (different) and people may envy you even on your obedience and righteousness and piety before Allah
Such a bad error to find those who sit among people and calls his son to boast by telling him recite so and so..be it Quran or whatever..
As a result, This grace may not be found in the near future !!
Conclusion: We must live happiness in our homes before we lose it and because true happiness lies in secrecy.
The Hadith says “Seek refuge with Allah from evil-eye” (ibid, Tib: 32)
The Hadeeth says “depend on Allah in fulfilling your needs in secrecy”
If some claim Allah says in (93:11) “And as for the favor of your Lord, do announce (it).”
Scholars say this has to do with proclaiming the general bounties like Islam and prophet Muhammed etc
Once you fear anything other than Allah it will harm you more
72:6) And there were men from mankind who sought refuge in men from the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden
The Messenger of Allah
[Salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam]
said: ‘Whoever ties a know and blows on it, he has practiced magic; and whoever practices magic, he has committed Shirk; and whoever hangs up something (as an amulet) will be entrusted to it.’”
