  • Evil-eye decoration use widespread in Turkey, across the globe
  • Decoration believed to thrust back malevolent or jealous intentions

Turkish non secular authority has proclaimed use of the eye-shaped blue glass amulets prohibited underneath Islam.

In response to a report in Al Jazeera, the proliferation of the eye-shaped blue glass amulets in Turkey is widespread, as is the idea of their capability to thrust back malevolent or jealous intentions.

However a lately revealed fatwa by the Diyanet, a physique that governs issues pertaining to Islam in Turkey, denounced using the ornaments domestically often known as nazarlik or nazar boncugu.

“Although the nature and condition of the evil eye are not known precisely, it is accepted by religion that some people can create negative effects with their gaze,” the Diyanet mentioned in an advisory revealed on its web site.

“In our religion, attitudes, behaviours and beliefs that attribute the ultimate influence on anything other than Allah are forbidden. For this reason, it is not permissible to wear evil eye amulets and similar things around the neck or anywhere for the purpose of benefiting from them.”

The historical past of evil-eye ornaments

A professor of artwork historical past at Istanbul’s Bahcesehir College, Nese Yildiran mentioned the blue color of the beads pertains to the sky god of the Central Asian Seljuk Turks.

“The Great Seljuks who accepted Islam continued the use of this colour in architectural decoration,” she mentioned, including that using two shades of blue, cobalt and turquoise in Muslim artwork “was also the result of expression with the understanding of Islam”, which included the identify of God and Arabic calligraphy. 

These charms are given as presents, worn as jewelry and adorn properties and workplaces throughout the nation and the world. In an indication of the digital period catching up with historic folklore, a nazarlik emoji was created in 2018.
