Bønner og burgere: Forbudte fristelser under itikaf blandt sufi-brødre i Pakistan

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Based on a number of burger incidents during ten days of itikaf at a Sufi astana (lodge) in Pakistan, this article discusses religious self-cultivation among Muslim pilgrims from Denmark. The focus on food and eating is not only used to discuss how religious brotherhoods and spiritual kinship are established and maintained, but also becomes a prism to discuss emic conceptualizations of nafs, the lower self, and how dedicated Sufis struggle with fatal attractions of various kinds - which in this case appears in the guise of tasty burgers.
