Re-Sight Islam


February 15, 2019

Season 2 - Episode 25 - Transformers - We're not talking about the "Robots in Disguise" (even though Salaam still plays with his Optimus Prime figure...), but rather those people who, despite the pressures of society and culture, stand their ground, embrace change and create a paradigm shift in their world.  In the earliest days of Islam there were few that "transformed" the acceptance of the Holy Prophet's teaching more than Abu Bakr, Hamza and Umar.

In this episode, Qasim and Salaam tell the stories of these three companions of the Holy Prophet and relate their inspiring journeys and how each transformed their own views and the opinions of the public.

You will find out what people did for protection before there were any organized police.  What are the benefits of having a woman making the rule?  When is it appropriate to smack someone up side the head with a bow? and What book Salaam considers the second most moving story in his life? Listen to this episode to find the answers to these questions and more!
