Hi All. Would a muslim be offended if i gave a St.Christopher pendant as a gift? The person is Turkish by the way. Do other religions recognise Patron Saints ?

 

Maybe a silly question but i really dont want to offend anyone or their beliefs, by giving this as a gift, if its not the done thing to do

 

Any advice,thoughts or comments on this would be most appreciated.

 Well,i dont know about others,but i guess i wouldnt be offended ´im Muslim´ but not Turk btw

İts your believe and you care about that person that much so you want to give him/her something holly,or spiritual ´for you´ to protect him,to ..mmm whatever the reason

 

İ remember i was taking a course,and i was having an exam and i was worried,so friend of mine told me he lighten a candle for me

İ thought it was nice.

But dont give statues or something like this,because mainly we dont keep statues in our homes.

 Why would you give a Muslim a Christian related symbol?  Would they understand the relevance of it?  I would be very careful about giving anyone a religious symbol, I personally would not like it unless that person was very close to me.  I would feel that the person is trying to push their religion onto me.

 

But it would be better to get opinions from Turks on this.

Thank you Canli. The person i want to give it to travels a lot, so thought it was appropriate to give a St Christopher pendant.

 

Also thanks for the advice on the statues, something i didnt know, learn something new everyday on here .

 İf it was me,i wouldnt mind it,even i would think its nice,it shows your care,but also,i wouldnt put it in a holly position,i mean,i would treat it as nazarlık

 

İts something we ´grow up to THİNK not believe´ it keep the evil eye away,but still its not holly

İf thats ok by you,then i dont see a reason why cant you give it as a gift.

What´s wrong with a St Christopher?  It´s hardly a major religious symbol in Christianity is it? You might think twice about giving him a cross - but St Christopher is the patron saint of travellers and a St Christopher pendant seems a nice gift to give to someone who travels a lot - not much different to a Turkish person giving you a Nazar as a gift (and they often do!)

 I thought it did - sorry my mistake - but it is given by Turkish people as a good luck charm isn´t it?  And this is really what a St Christopher medal is - a charm against accidents.

 

Modify:  OK just looked it up - I really did think it was religious rather than traditional {#lang_emotions_shy}

Nazar is more like a pagan tradition. Islam in fact bans these kind of objects that are believed to protect people.

janette, the goal of giving gifts is to make the people happy. therefore, it really doesn´t matter if you give that pendant as a gift. all religions are same. you can certainly give it.

 İf it was a Cross,i would be restless yes

But if its a pendant,and i know what it means to the person who is giving to me,so i will appreciate it,and it will be meaningful to me as well.

 

Same as when my friend lighten the candle for me,its meaningless for me personally,meanss nothing,but because what it meant to him,it became meaningful to me too

He was praying to God for me,that is meaningful,and very nice too.

 

Btw,what does lightening the candle means ?

İ know he was praying,but when you light a candle along with the praying,what does it means?

İ thought its not nice to ask him ,not appreciative {#lang_emotions_shy}

I find most Turkish people (at least the ones I know) very respectful of other faiths.

 

When every I visit Turkey, I always have to stop in the church of St. Anthony in Taksim. I just love to stop in and say a prayer of thanksgiving for my safe trip to and return home. My fiance knows I always light a candle and he goes over to buy one or two for me everytime. When his sisters went with us, they also light a candle and said a prayer.

 

I loved that they accepted me and my religion, just as I accept them and their religion

 if more people accepted each others religious beliefs a lot of misconceptions and prejudices would be gone from the world .. in my opinion .. but more importantly there would also be "respect" and that is why turkey and turkish people hold a special place in my heart .. it is the respect that I saw whilst there.

You can pray for anything you want. I - being an agnost for years now - still light a candle at a Maria statue (mother-figure to me) while thinking of my late father. Small inheretage of my catholic upbringing....

 I think if you were a strong Roman Catholic you might have a different view!  He may be a patron Saint of Travellers, but only originally in the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christian faiths.

 

My point was that it would not have the same meaning to a Muslim as it would to a Christian.  If I was looking for a gift of this nature I would try and find something that is relevant to the persons culture, faith (if they are believers), country etc etc

Thank you so much to all of you for your thoughts and comments on this. Very interesting views i must say.

 

I suppose it would do no harm to offer the gift to my friend and ask if they would accept and let them know the meaning of it.

 

All i wanted to do what to let them know i would be thinking of them and their safety while they were travelling.

If they didnt want to accept it, then i wouldnt be offended by that at all.

 

Libralady ... i will do some research into gifts of this nature for a muslim and their beliefs. Thank you

Everytime a TC member asks for advice on a gift to take to Turkey for friends or boyfriend´s relatives, it is suggested that they take something from their own culture/country!  Personally if a Turk was to bring me a present in the UK I would much rather have a Turkish ´Eye´ than a St Christopher I could walk into Argos and buy any day of the week!

 It is certainly bazzar and yes, it is like a bazaar!  It is like a big catalogue shop.  You can buy online or you can go the the shop and choose your item from the catalgoue and buy (unseen!) and carry it home.  If it is a big item you can get it delivered.

Look - Janette whoever you are with the friend in Turkey - please stick to your St Christopher buying and stop thinking about hairy men in underwear.

I WILL NOT LET YOU OUTBID ME!! {#lang_emotions_rant}. It was my idea to ask for photos and you needn´t think chucking in a free comb or 2 will get you anywhere - my bid is back up to £40 + ermm....some Tesco´s vouchers   (I think we can forget LL and her out of date GreenShield stamps)

Have you got any vouchers for extra Tesco Clubcard points with vegetable purchases?  He´s 40 points short of a weekend at The Legoland Hilton (Basement suite). . . he´s trying to impress a certain lady he has his eye on.

~daisy - you have to put in a bid - you have to win them!! - Offers at the moment are £40 Argos vouchers + Tesco Club Vouchers (from me ), 2 books of Argos vouchers + one comb (Janette) and 50 grms brussels sprouts from Trudy (strange I know but she´s from the Netherlands so we have to make allowances ).  Can you do better???

How many sprouts in 50g ?  Clearly handsom "doesn´t know his brussels sprouts from his bean sprouts".  I think he´s been a little "green" accepting such an offer.
