Nazar means to make a spiritual vow to God where if He grants you a specified wish, then you will fulfil your (specified) pledge to Him. Making a Nazr (vow) makes it obligatory upon oneself to do some good act, or to refrain from doing an act which is better not to do, for the sake of, or for the pleasure of God. Once a spiritual vow is taken by a Muslim, it becomes obligatory on him/her to fulfil the vow if his/her wish is granted by God. Nazr is one of many means by which a human being seeks the assistance of God.
