North Jackson Honors English 10 B 3/25/20 The Evil Eye in Turkish Tradition The Evil Eye is the Turkish tradition that sounds bad but really isn't. The Evil Eye is a sign of good Omen and meant to bring luck to anyone wearing it. The Evil Eye is also called the Nazar Eye, but most people call it Evil Eye. The Evil Eye is a charm that wards off mystic malevolent forces. The Evil Eye is supposed to wave off anyone's envy that they might have for you. It was though long ago that anyone baring a blue eye had the “curse” of the Evil Eye in them. “The earliest versions of the eye amulets go back to 3,300 “(Yildiran - eye .) The Evil Eye is also meant to ensure safe passage and back then Egyptians and Etruscans would paint the eye on the prows of their ships and nowadays we paint it on planes. There are many different meanings that the Evil Eye symbolizes, such as in Judaism it follows the idea that if a person has a negative attitude and feels envious instead of joyful when other people succeed, then that person is dangerous to others. It can also work vice versa. In Islam it is thought that too much praise will bring harm because of the Evil Eye. So, they say "Masha'Allah", meaning God has willed the good fortune, to avoid the negative effects of the evil eye.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
