    Host: Lindsay Um Fatima.
    Guest: Danielle LoDuca.

    In this interview we talk with Danielle LoDuca, an American woman from NY who converted to Islam during the aftermath of 9-11. While working on a project in college, she aimed to prove that all religions were man-made but after reading the Quran her school project went in a completely new direction and she ended up dedicating herself to the study of Islam.
    Check out this amazing interview with Danielle, a sincere believer in God, wife and mother of 5, and health and fitness coach, whose hobbies include horseback archery!

    About Danielle:

    Converted in 2002, about 19 years ago
    41 years old
    From New York, currently living in Florida

    Enjoys horseback archery. Horses have made a huge impact on her and her personal growth
    Loves reading and studying about neuroscience, horses and personal development
    Passionate about empowering women to overcome overwhelm, and to live to their fullest potential.

    Believes the state of our communities, societies and the ummah have a lot to do with the state of health and strength of our women, that if women realize their importance and value, our state of being as a whole will change. Women raise children, advise and support men and have so many powerful roles, but have been led to believe all too often that our roles are insignificant and limited. If we want men to be better if we want our communities to be stronger, it starts with women.
    Danielle is passionate about helping others with their journeys to and in Islam. She's dissatisfied with some approaches taken by many mosques and tries to help individuals whenever she can so they can find the way that best works for them to learn and practice Islam.
    From Danielle's Facebook:

    Convert Care for New Muslims
    Today we talk to Shaykh Bilal Brown, Managing Director of New Beginnings.
    Shaykh Bilal Brown is also a convert.
    https://beginnings.org.uk/
    New Beginnings is all about convert care and helping people in their first years of Islam.
    From the website:
    New Beginnings aims to create welcoming, non-judgemental environments and spaces, online and in-person, that nurture a sound and authentic experience of Islam for those that are either converts to Islam, or interested in converting.

    Topics covered in this episode:

    How 'Convert Care' is a neglected duty and what we're doing about it
    Offering a holistic package for new converts
    The complex needs of new Muslims
    Facilitating a smooth transition of the convert into the wider Muslim community
    Preserving one's individual and cultural identity after converting
    Social events for converts
    Learning/classes for converts
    Buddying programs
    Offering support and well-being services

    From the website:
    Every day in the UK, at least one person converts to Islam.The conversion is usually met with elation from the Muslim communitybut there is often little done to take care of the complex needs that they may have, or at times,a lack of understanding of what those needs are.
    Also:
    That's where we come in.With a diverse team, made up mostly of converts from diverse backgrounds,we have the knowledge and experience to offer a holistic packagein order to ensure the smooth transition of the convert into the wider Muslim community.
    And:
    Convert care in the UK is an area that has been much neglected for decades.The number of converts to Islam in the UK is growing exponentially, with two-thirds of them being women.We aim to fill the gap via a combination of innovative methods with a strong basis in the Islamic tradition and the way of the Prophet Muhammad.People who convert to Islam generally have a whole myriad of needs.We aim to fulfil and serve the needs of those new and old to Islam in a holistic manner.
