Hello and asslamualaikum! Welcome back to my blog! Recently I’ve been following some certain bloggers that have inspired to talk more about Islam and being a Muslim and also how to embrace myself as a muslim hijabi on this blog! So, this week I decided to share with you some of my favourite podcasts. Shall we begin?
I have recently started to swap out listening to music with listening to podcasts and I didn’t want to listen to any podcasts that may not teach me anything, so I decided to search up some islamic podcasts! I specifically looked for podcasts that were hosted by muslim women as that appealed to me more being a muslim woman. The app I use to listen to podcasts is Apple Podcasts app but you can find all of these podcasts on Spotify as well.
The Aida Azlin Show.
Aida Azlin is a writer and a blogger currently based in Morocco. She is an inspiration to many and I love her for her Tuesday Love Letters that she sends to hundreds of women, empowering them and inspiring them! She talks to many inspiring and interesting guests and listening to their stories just inspires me to reflect and strengthen my own imaan. You can find the link to her blog and more information about her here: https://www.aidaazlin.com/
Salaam Girl podcast!
The Salam Girl podcast is hosted by two amazing women, Nicole and Monica! Their podcast was probably the first ever podcast I listened to and I enjoyed so many of their episodes! They interviewed so many amazing women and also told us so many inspirational stories and every episode will touch your heart as well as have you wanting to listen to more! Their podcast is based in Texas in the US and honestly after listening to them and their guests I wish there was a similar podcast here in the UK! (If there is, please let me know in the comments below!)
Mindful Muslimah Speaks
I have to say I am fairly new to this podcast so I have only listened to one podcast but it was such an insightful podcast about Hazrat Asiya (Radiallahu’anha) who was the wife of the Pharoah. She spoke about her story in Episode 202 if anyone would also like to listen to it. It made me think there are a lot of inspirational women out there but the most inspirational women are the women of Islam who I would like to know more about in the future inshallah.
Islamic History Podcast
After I started to listen to more podcast episodes, I decided I wanted to learn more about the history of Islam so I found this podcast that talks a lot about the history of Islam that tells us all about the history of islam in different parts of the world. Currently I’m listening to the Pakistan series and learning more about the India and Pakistan Partition. I thought it’s very interesting to learn more things about the country and culture I’m from!
That’s all the podcasts I had to share with you! Do you have any good islamic podcasts that you’re particularly enjoying? Please let me know in the comments below!
