Nasim Azad is our Muslim Belief Contact and she runs the Muslim women's group "Beyond The Veil".
Nasim lives and works in Edinburgh, originally a Yorkshire lass. She is very involved in the community in assisting, signposting and offering a listening ear to those who may be troubled or need advice. She is very passionate about doing the right thing and is adamant to speak up when faith is used to justify certain actions. As a Muslim woman she works hard to present the accurate information on Islam to non-Muslims but equally to Muslims. People have a fear of faith and Nasim tries to highlight the fact that in some small ways, every day, we are all in fact practicing faith. This could be through taking an interest in the environment, helping an elder neighbour with shopping, speaking against oppression, this must continue no matter who you are for peace, love, harmony and coexistence.
