Hey, I'm Nasima.

I'm an anthropologist, writer, educator, and researcher. My latest book is about breathing, Sufism, and how the lenses of Orientalism impacted the relationship between Islam and Europe.

Breathing Hearts

Sufism is known as the mystical dimension of Islam. Breathing Hearts explores this definition to find out what it means to ‘breathe well’ along the Sufi path in the context of anti-Muslim racism. It is the first book-length ethnographic account of Sufi practices and politics in Berlin and describes how Sufi practices are mobilized in healing secular and religious suffering. It tracks the Desire Lines of multi-ethnic immigrants of color, and white German interlocutors to show how Sufi practices complicate the post secular imagination of healing in Germany.
