The four member panel consist of Muslimah (Muslim women) converts; sisters who know the life of being non-Muslims as well as being Muslim. Muslim sisters who know a church life and a masjid (mosque) life. Muslim sisters who can honestly speak to the pros and cons that only a convert to Al-Islam can bring.
During this radio show we will not shy away from issues that cause misunderstandings about Muslim women. Topics along the line of:
A. Are Muslim women treated like second-class citizens?
B. What is the meaning of Idh-ra-bu often mistranslated "beat her lightly"?
C. Muslim women are limited to the home
HOWEVER, and more importantly, we want to show the beauty of what it means to be a Muslim woman and their personal stories of how Al-Islam liberated them as a woman. We want to hear and learn about their personal journeys to Al-Islam and what was their personal special "Ah-ha, magical moment, when they realized that Al-Islam was the way of life for them. We want to hear from these Sisters EXACTLY what in Al-Islam liberated them as a WOMAN!!
