My Journey to Islam
This is a VIDEO slide show of an Internet Radio interview I did last year about my journey to Islam. At the time I gave the interview I was still in the humanitarian field and it is this need to advocate for social justice that is at the centre of my aims as a New Muslimah coach. I want to empower all Muslim women to stand up for their God-given rights. The whole point of the existence of Islam is to protect and dignify women, the problem we see in many Muslim communities where women are being oppressed is because Muslim men are following pre and post-Islamic Jahaliya patriarchy and NOT following the normative framework of Islam.
We, women, need to study our Deen - and not some man-made fatwa designed to strip us of independence and autonomy.
Please note - this interview is my PERSONAL journey and this journey is a lifelong process that will no doubt change with knowledge, experience, and wisdom.
So take from it only the parts that are of benefit to you on your journey and ignore what is not of benefit.
May Allah (swt) guide us all, Ameen,
