Episode 30: What Do You Think A Soul Is?
In this last episode of our Ramadan series, we hear from friends of the show about the Night of Power and what it’s like to pray all night. Ahmed talks with BuzzFeed’s Nabiha Syed and Zainab Shah about imagining God when they were kids, counting prayers, heaven and hell, and what souls are like. Then, Ahmed calls up a special guest.

Episode 29: God Giveth Biryani And God Taketh Away Pernil
In the fourth episode of the Ramadan series, Ahmed talks to converts about the struggles and joys of finding community in immigrant Muslim masjids. First, we listen to some of the thoughts Chris St. Louis and Cassandra Villarreal recorded throughout the first few weeks of Ramadan. Then, we check in with them about cultural authenticity, losing pork but gaining biryani, and why it’s frustrating to be introduced as a convert. Then, Ahmed talks to poet Kima Jones about converting when she was full of wild teenage hormones, living in a mixed religious family, and anti-blackness in the masjid. Plus! Kima reads from her piece, The Aqiqa. Follow Ahmed at @radbrowndads.

Episode 28: #BlackMuslimRamadan
For the third episode in our Ramadan series, we focus on a community that isn’t often centered during Ramadan — black Muslims. First up, Ahmed talks with Sarah Hagi, who writes for Vice, about the glory of #BlackMuslimRamadan and #BlackoutEid. Then, a longer conversation with Ikhlas Saleem, who co-hosts the Identity Politics podcast, about moving away from, and back to, the black Muslim community she grew up in. Plus — why she joined the international students association in college despite being 100% American. Finally, Ikhlas calls her mom to ask her a few questions about her first Ramadan.
