Muslim moms, I have a question...

My Dh is currently deployed overseas and his cutter docked a while go in Abu Dhabi (he is no longer there ) and he visited the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Beautiful place btw!

He got this thing for me and it is what I would consider a wind chime. The thing is we are Pagan so this looks like a pentagram and pentacles to me. I don't know all that much about Islam, except the basic stuff and a little of what DH has learned from the locals. So I have no idea what these symbols mean to y'all? Are they just stars or is there more to them? :)
Sorry pic is sideways. :/

Could be that each one of the points is representative of the five pillars of islam

Interesting, that may be it. :)
I'm hoping one of the Muslim moms here will see this because I thought it was pretty neat that something that means something to me can mean something totally different to someone else.

Just stars, I can't think of any religious meaning to them.

That's what I thought because I tried googling and came up short so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask someone who is Muslim. Thanks for answering! :)
