This is not a repeat of my last thread but a request for a Turkish equivalent of a common British apotropaic expression, said in contexts where it is felt that if an action/ venture goes ahead unless you say this you might be tempting Fate. The expression may date back to a time when people were referring to the cross of Christ or, before that, to a time in pagan cultures where it was felt that trees were sacred. This phrase is used by people who rap their knuckles on a piece of wood hoping to stave off bad luck. In the UK, the phrase 'touch wood' is used - often jokingly by tapping one's head. The phrases are sometimes spoken when a person is already experiencing some good fortune and hope that it will continue - for example "I've been winning on every race - touch wood". Would inshallah be therefore the corresponding Muslim term? Thanks.
