    S02E08 - Do Muslim Artists Get Away With Having Low Standards?

    S02E08 - Do Muslim Artists Get Away With Having Low Standards?

    Over the centuries Muslim artists have been some of the most renowned producers of art and culture throughout the world. From the architecture of Central Asia and West Africa, to Persian poets and the emergence of Qawali in the Indian subcontinent. Considering this rich cultural history, do Muslim artists in the West get away with producing low quality art? Art that is applauded by Muslim communities, but would not hold up to scrutiny in the mainstream, and doesn't meet the high artistic standards of our past. Does the term "Islamic art" even make sense, and what qualifies a piece of art as being "Islamic"?This season we're taking the podcast to a whole new level.

    S02E05 - Sectarianism: Sufi vs. Salafi!

    S02E05 - Sectarianism: Sufi vs. Salafi!

    Sectarianism is something most of us will experience at some point in our Islamic journey. With everyone appealing to the authority and legitimacy of their group above all, it can become confusing for young Muslims to decide which group to join, or if they should even join a group at all. We break down some of our personal experiences with different Islamic groups, and try to offer a way out of the false dichotomy presented to many Muslims.This season we're taking the podcast to a whole new level.

    S02E04 - Do Muslims Have a Problem with Porn?

    S02E04 - Do Muslims Have a Problem with Porn?

    Pornography is one of the most powerful phenomena impacting the lives of people around the world today, but it is the one least spoken about in public. This dichotomy is put into sharp focus for young Muslims, whose cultural backgrounds often frame anything related to sex as something extremely taboo and shameful to speak about. Paired with a culture of gender segregation and sexual repression, it's no surprise that porn viewership in Muslim societies ranks amongst the highest in the world. In this episode we discuss the struggles that Muslims face with pornography, why viewership is so high, and the aspects of sexual education that are lacking in our society, which can sometimes lead young people to turn to pornography for answers.DISCLAIMER: This episode contains a discussion around the topics of sex and pornography. These are hugely important topics which must be discussed, however we understand some parents and children may be watching who aren't quite ready to have that chat.This season we're taking the podcast to a whole new level.

    S02E03 - The Truth About the Baraka Boys

    S02E03 - The Truth About the Baraka Boys

    The podcast takes a more relaxed turn this week, as we reminisce on their journeys to and through faith, and how we all met. Raucously funny at times, and at times going deep on issues of personal faith and trust in God. Come for the laughs, but stay for the stories about why you must always trust God, and keep great friends who will grow with you. A personal favourite episode of ours.This season we're taking the podcast to a whole new level. You can watch this episode over on the brand new Baraka Boys YouTube channel.
