I first came across Hodan Ibrahim in 2016, when she basically dropped everything she was doing in Canada and moved to Dubai to organize and host M-Powered Summit. This was a first-of-its-kind conference on Muslim startups and entrepreneurship. I ended up interviewing her and her co-founder for Ilmfeed, and also did writeups of the event. I haven't …
 
Late last year, I had the chance to sit down to talk to Hussein Kesvani about his work as a Muslim journalist. A lot happened between then and now that led to me not publishing this podcast episode soon after I recorded it. I figure now's as good a time as any. Hussein Kesvani is the UK/Europe editor for Mel Magazine, a publication ostensibly about…

Every Muslim man needs to learn how to network in a way that is natural and doesn't seem fake. The key here is to not BE fake.

I wasted my 20s. Here’s how: a Born Muslim’s Convert Story. It was all necessary. Those experiences made me who I am today. But that doesn’t mean others have to make the same mistakes, or worse. You don’t have to learn the hard way. Most of you will, because you don’t listen to people with more experience than you. Some of you won’t. You’re the sma…

In this podcast, we are going to do a deep-dive (sort of) into halal dating. As surprising as it sounds, 20% of my readers are women. Some of them even e-mail me asking for help with their boy problems. They're usually a hot mess (as women are when they catch feels) but Alhamdulillah I was able to help them avoid potential disasters. On top of that…

Why aren't there any popular Muslim Dad Blogs? Maybe there are, but I sure as hell haven't seen them. Technically this is a good thing because it means the dads are out earning a living to provide for their families. It's also a bad thing because this means the online Islamic discourse is dominated by women and, sadly, Feminists at that. You may ha…
 
The idea for this episode came to mind while I was listening to the Mad Mamluks - shoutout to Mahim, SIM, Sheikh Amir, and Mort. A few weeks ago they had a psychologist on a few weeks ago, who is a relationship consultant. The topic of dead bedrooms came up. It was a good discussion and there was some good advice given. However, I felt like they di…
 
My Short-lived Career as a Preacher A few years ago I had a brief stint as a Jumuah Khateeb (someone who delivers the sermon at Friday Mass.)

Ideally, the Friday sermon should be very inspiring and an immediate boost to the faith of the congregants meant to encoura…

He is commonly known as a superlative ma…
 
How do we engage Muslims who aren’t as far along the spiritual path as we are? As someone who was Muslim in name alone for most of my life, it’s surprisingly easy to forget where I started and how far I’ve actually come. Imagine how much harder it is for Muslims who know nothing but a proper adherence to Islam. I want to understand how the "non-pra…

Holistic Health and Well-Being So here's the thing I'm getting older - I'm in my mid-30s. I'm a father. My overall health is becoming more of a concern.

I sometimes get indigestion, which never used to happen because I h…

It was quality m…
