Its been a while, hasn’t it? First, Happy International Podcast Day! In celebration I put in a little more effort to get a new episode up :). This episode is actually really cool because I sit down with Rebecca Khan who is the Marketing Director of the first Muslim friendly Luxury resort in the Americas– Grand Medina. Yes you read that right, Muslim friendly! Check out the episode to lear about the accommodations, like halal food and an all women club/spa with an all women’s pool!
A new episode is live on the podcast! This time I was joined by Brenda who converted to Islam in 1986. I was excited to learn more about her conversion story because although I have known her since I was a child I actually never really knew what her story was.
Brenda, who was born to a White German mother and a Mexican father, was introduced to Islam during a rough time in her life. I couldn’t help but smile as I listened to her story of how her husband introduced her to Islam by giving her a Quran when they first met and how they both as converts grew together as better Muslims, strengthening their Iman (faith). Brenda also talks about the struggles of being in an interacial relationship with an African-American man and the types of discrimination they faced.
