Welcome, Friends. Storytelling has the power to not only create connections but provide universal truths about ourselves and the world. When listening to this podcast, I ask that you honor these stories and the rawness, transparency, and vulnerability that they invoke. Invite them with an open heart and you will see that all stories share a universal message. I pray that each anecdote leaves you inspired to share as the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "It is also charity to utter a good word.” But more importantly, I pray that you allow yourself to find comfort in the good, wisdom in the hardship, and the courage to trust Allah.

    Dada, I Won’t Forget Who We Are

    For too long the whole world, and particularly us as Muslims, have turned a blind eye to the horrific and brutal treatment of our Uyghur brothers and sisters. We must remember them, we must say their names, we must hear their stories - so today we bring you two. Subhi and Jewher were raised miles apart, but share one homeland - East Turkestan.

    Up Until The Front Door

In this episode Loubna Reguig the national president of the EMF (Etudiants Musulmans de France - the French Muslim Students association) sheds light on the challenges faced by Muslim woman who choose to wear the hijab in France and how the French authorities leverage the different principles of the republic to justify their oppressive actions.

    Sudan's Collective Grief Is Never Ending

    Nothing prepares you for seeing your homeland being torn apart. Sudan, a country once brimming with life, vibrant with dreams and hopes for the future of the land and the future of the people, is currently being ravaged by war and a genocide that is being ignored by the international community. The women of Sudan have risen up to lead the fight for revolution and liberation. In this episode, we hear from two such women - they are on the ground in Sudan, in the midst of war, fighting for the truth, and for their homeland.
