What's that in English? I know what it means, but I need the English expression for it, pls: نظر شدن
That's what "happens" to people who were complimented because the person who said this didn't say mashallah (that it just like this thanks to god bc he wants it to be so) So what does that expression mean in English? (German would also be fine)
Thanks!

I think it's translated using "Evil Eye" expression.
There are some examples here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/evil+eye
