A nazar (Turkish: nazar boncuğu, Old Turkic: gökçe munçuk, meaning "blue bead") is an eye-shaped amulet believed to protect against the evil eye. “Evil eye”, from boncuğu (derivative of boncuk, which means “bead” in Turkish) and nazar (from the Arabic نظر, “sight” or “seeing”).
In Persian/Afghan folklore, it is called a cheshm nazar (چشم نظر) or nazar ghorboni (نظرقربونی). They believe that if a person is complimented a lot, they will be jinxed and often sick the next day unless a verse of the Quran is recited.
In Urdu, it is also called "nazar" (نظر).
