Fun, vibrant and thoughtful!

I’m a listener from Sydney, Australia, who is really connecting on many levels with the Salam, Girl hosts. I admire their energy and really like the thoughtful way they discuss different matters. You can tell they are deep thinkers, even though the show is quite light-hearted and fun. I would recommend this show especially to new Mums who are at home a lot or anyone else who may be feeling a bit isolated. Grab a cup of tea, and enjoy!

Already hooked!

This is such a great podcast, even though it’s only one episode in I loved listening to Monica and Nicole share their identity journey after they converted. There isn’t a lot of space online to hear convert stories, and especially ones where they haven’t picked up heaps of non-religious cultural practises as they learn to be Muslim. I’d love to hear more about difficulties/anxieties you experienced along the way as you became Muslims and after you converted, and how you managed them! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
