"Afiat Basheh" (Persian: عافیت باشه‎) or its more formal form "Afiat Bashad" (Persian: عافیت باشد‎) is a response to sneezing in Persian language, meaning "May Cleanliness/Purity be bestowed upon you," or "may it be for your health." [1][2]

After getting this message from people around, the sneezer will often say سلامت باشید (Salaamat Bashid) which translates to "[you too] Be healthy".


The main use of the phrase is to response to a sneezer, but "Afiat Basheh" can also be used in other circumstances such telling a person right after his or her shower.
