NISAA Podcast: Ramadan Special 2008

// September 3rd, 2008 // No Comments » // Blog

The relaunch of the beautifully made-over Nisaa website, and the arrival of the sacred month, inspired Organica and I to reflect over our best and worst Ramadan moments for a new episode of the NISAA podcast.

Reminder: Podcast Reviews

// June 29th, 2008 // No Comments » // Blog

Not sure how many of you read them, but just in case you forgot… I am writing a series of podcast reviews for I'm aiming for once a week (usually Saturdays), but it's been more like once a fortnight on average!

Anyway, I just posted an entry reviewing the Western Muslim podcast. Please check it out and leave your comments there so I know that you're reading. HINT HINT.

My previous reviews can be found here.

New Nisaa Podcast: Volunteers Needed!

// May 19th, 2008 // No Comments » // Blog

I need volunteers for the next Nisaa podcast… read more about it here, and please pass the word on!

It's been a while since the last Nisaa podcast, for which I apologise. I hope to rejuvenate the series with something special… but I need YOU to help me out, inshā’Allāh!

I need at least five volunteers for this next podcast, preferably from different parts of the world. My plan is to create a vcast – that is, a video podcast – using photos and audio clips submitted by Nisaa members.

Comments disabled… please visit the original entry to comment. :)

Podcast Review Series

// May 4th, 2008 // No Comments » // Blog

I have posted my first podcast review for Ijtema. Check it aat, innit.

Plus a big “what the hey?” at the election of Boris Johnson as Mayor of London. And a huge “May God save us all” at the election of a British National Party rep to the London Assembly. They needed 5% of the total vote to get in – they got 5.33%.

Not cool, people. Not cool at all.

It really makes me wonder what Londoners have been smoking lately – and how desperate certain members of the white population must be to vote for a bunch of bigoted racist scum, like the BNP?

At this rate, I may consider spending the next four years back in Leicester.

Welcome to Ijtema 2.0!

Remember that show?

I talked about it quite a bit on MuslimMatters.

Well, to top it all off, I managed to wangle an interview with one of the “mentors”, Sr. Dawn Bates. She's a really nice gal, māshā’Allāh.

Muslims in Australia: Interview with Amir Colan

// January 24th, 2008 // No Comments » // Blog

Another entry for MuslimMatters, this time a podcast interview with the director of the film documentary, “Muslims in Australia”:

It seems that I am gradually becoming MuslimMatters' unofficial media correspondent, as I now blog about yet another documentary concerning a Muslim minority community. But perhaps the readers would be pleased to note that this film is not in fact more sensationalist propanganda designed to divide society, but rather the exact opposite. Continue reading…
