A lovely addition to the Zaytuna publishing endeavor
This is another beautiful podcast from Zaytuna College. I am not a Muslim, but I am an appreciative observer and have been a student of Arabic and the Middle East for a long while now. Scholarship such as that of Zaytuna helps me grow in my understanding of and gratitude for this profound tradition, and I am happy to see this resource for the Ummah and its neighbors today. I wish you a blessed Ramadan this year!
