Number five is a magical on in Islam. It is connected to the open hand, the pentagram of the five senses, marriage, the five pillars of Islam, the five daily prayers, and the hand of Fatima. It is a sign that means protection and represents blessings, power and strength. This way, the building becomes an international icon for Africa.
