    We Don't Talk About Hijab

    We don't talk about hijab, why is that? In this episode, we talk about what hijab means to us, and why it's a topic we're hesitant to discuss. Hijab has been a booming topic lately from balaclavas to the french hijab ban, these issues got us talking amongst ourselves and forced us to have the conversations we were avoiding. Our thoughts? take a listen.Article referenced: https://yaqeeninstitute.ca/read/paper/is-hijab-religious-or-cultural-how-islamic-rulings-are-formed.9 Conditions of Hijab: https://khaleejiabaya.com/blog/conditions-hijabWays to support us:Buy Us Coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/AbwaanpodcastCop our merch: https://www.abwaanchronicles.com/shopGet in touch with us via:Instagram: instagram.com/abwaanpodcastTwitter: twitter.com/AbwaanPodcastEmail: abwaanchronicles@gmail.comCuriouscat: curiouscat.live/AbwaanPodcast

Great podcast

Love the podcast! Would it be possible to do some episodes in Somali? I’m losing my language and wish I could listen to more stories in Somali.

Third Culture Kids FTW!

As someone who moved to Minnesota and discovered that there is a large Somali population down in Minneapolis, seeing the description for this show led me to a real quick subscribe. I wanted to hear what folks growing up as third culture kids thought about their place in the world, in the West, in their parents' home culture. And Abwaan Chronicles delivers that and more!

Their recent episodes have featured reflections on life during Ramadan (a particularly unusual year for it), the meaning of home for those living in that third culture space, the conclusion of a very strange decade, and lots of personal takes on all sorts of things happening around us. The academic dork was pleased to discover the show. The curious westerner in me even more so.

Give this one a shot. It's worth a listen!
