    Ep 76 - Are Muslim Swipe-Dating Apps a Thing of the Past?

    In this week's podcast, our host Salim speaks to Hoda Abrahim, founder and CEO of BlendMatching. They talk about the company's take on matchmaking, which echoes the traditional approach, and how Muslim matchmaking has evolved over time. Sharing anecdotes of their own, Hoda and Salim reflect on marriage, discussing its merits, trials, and tribulations, with a focus on cross-culture marriage and the cost of closed-mindedness.

    Ep 75 - A (much needed) education on anti-Blackness

    Ep 75 - A (much needed) education on anti-Blackness

    This week our host Salim speaks to Nabil Abdulrashid, comedian and activist. Nabil is somewhat notorious for being banned several times across different social media for the things he says, and the discussion explores that. We gain an understanding as to why Nabil is so passionate about this topic, and why he calls out for others to be as well. He talks about the difference between being racist against black people and being anti-black, highlighting how the latter is quite prevalent in our own communities. We learn about the history of anti-blackness, and its impact on so many of the social movements today, and how we've seen the black community fight for all time and time again, and yet they stand alone when they fight for themselves.

    On this week's episode of The Muslim Vibe Podcast, our host Salim talks to Sheikh Ali Hussein Datoo about the life of the Prophet. As his birth anniversary approaches, they take the chance to discuss the morals and lessons we can learn from the Prophet, and how they not only applied then, but also how they apply to us now in the 21st century, 1400 years later.

    Ep 73 - A Virtue of Disobedience: A Discussion on 'God-Centric' Activism

    Ep 73 - A Virtue of Disobedience: A Discussion on 'God-Centric' Activism

    This week on the TMV podcast, our host Salim talks to author and CAGE Research Director, Asim Qureshi. The conversation takes us through Asim's past ambitions of corporate law, his motivation and experience with CAGE, and most recently, his book. They have an in-depth discussion of the contents of the book, providing further insight into Asim's words and thoughts around these areas. We get a closer look into some of the stories between the pages, learning more about systemic racism and what it means for us as Muslims to stand and work against it. The talk covers the notion of accountability,  how we need to be more aware of the consequences of our choices and how we inadvertently become collaborators, and how we must address that if we truly wish to be God-Centric in our activism.
