Mommying While Muslim is a one of a kind podcast where two American born and bred Muslim moms share their experiences to raise second generation kids. Having experienced both pre and post 9/11 America, they're acutely aware of the unique challenges their families face on top of the regular messes that all moms share. Mommying While Muslim is a space to take back their stories, and tell those no one will air on the news or portray fully or fairly in the media.Zaiba Hasan and Uzma Jafri are moms first, careerwomen second, and global citizens at heart. They meet taboo topics head on because they weren't allowed to do it growing up, not at home or at school and work. They aim to better their immediate households, communities, and their momsisterhood the world over by telling the truths sometimes people don't want to face or to hear. Not everyone has the privileges they have, and they are eager to learn more than they are to share their own experiences. Always looking to give back, they find women and families who need a mic because no one needs a voice; they just need an opportunity to speak. Besides tough social issues, they also tackle political ones because when laws affect their kids, they're coming for them as well as the ones who make them! There's no lane that doesn't get taken here.Along the way, they recruit momallies for Muslim Americans who have been inordinately targeted for the last 20 years. True moms know that ALL our children deserve to be safe, loved, and happy, and we bust every yellow brick on the Islamaphobic road to make sure they all are. If you like good trouble, this one's for you!

    Kinship Assaulted

    Kinship Assaulted

    Trigger warning: sexual abuse
    Mina is our guest today, anonymized to protect their identity. They share their experience with childhood sexual abuse and the effects it had on them, their parents, and their extended family. There are a lot of dynamics to consider and our inner justice-seeker may be triggered; however, the insight as a therapist and survivor they offer is really important to think about.
    Let’s talk about second generation trauma, family expectations vs social expectations, our own healing journeys, and how severed ties are navigated in these terribly delicate circumstances.

    #boymom Farheen Raza Abbas joins us to discuss the circumstances that caused her to limit relationships in her own family.

Also find out how Farheen teaches how to end any tantrum in 5 seconds and avoid hostile family confrontations she learned from TikTok.
