Truth, Reality & Community

These ladies are where it’s at! Im a new convert to Islam and I'm trying to find online platforms that connect me with other like-minded Muslims. Ones that don’t shy away from stories on temptations, trials & tribulations etc. They share relatable and understandable stories of living in a North American society with always having Allah watch over you in all the decisions you make in life. I first heard them on the Young n Muslim podcast and felt like I found people who think the same way as me and don’t shy away from topics needing to be discussed in fear of that “perfect Muslimah” image, which isn’t real life. These girls are inspirational the way they speak and carry themselves as strong Muslim women. You need this podcast in your life! Thank you ladies for being unapologetically yourselves
