Abstract
The article investigates two semi-autobiographic texts by the Iranian-German writer SAID, ‘Das Niemandsland ist unseres. West-östliche Betrachtungen’ and ‘Ich und der Islam’. The article focuses on the relationship between Heimat and islam against the background of SAID’s exile experience. The writer reflects upon the way language creates a safe space and functions as a new Heimat. SAID also defends islam as a spiritual religion, but rejects it in the form of a state ideology. In addition to that, he compares islam with the art of poetry and understand both as sources of religiosity.
