Enlightening and Genuine

This podcast nourishes my intellectual and spiritual curiosity. I have listened to 4 or 5 so far and look forward to the rest. I appreciate that with his depth and breath of knowledge, Baraka Blue skillfully engages his guests in genuine conversations about topics that I believe are pertinent both personally and universally. May Allah bless his efforts!

Intrigued to say the least!!!!!

I accidentally stumbled upon this podcast and have been STUCK for literally 3 days! To describe this podcast I would say captivating, substantial content, and creative material to say the least. More importantly this podcast will influence public perception, build awareness and hopefully build bridges to disabling issues. The episode with Malik Badri warmed my heart the most. Thank you for all you do!!

Path and present succeeds

As the name suggests, this podcast deals with the current and relevant issues swirling around trying to live life in a Sufi way in a 21st western world. Baraka Blue tackles these issues with ease and teases out the many jewels of wisdom from his wide variety of guests. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a glimpse into modern living sufism as a reality not just a name.
