  1. Parents, talk to your kids, or rather, give them the confidence they need to talk to you about the uncomfortable issues. This is a good wakeup call. Amazing story about praying Fajr.

  2. I was wondering when you would start Podcasting. Its so funny how blind parents are when it comes to these issues. Either they just don’t know, or they don’t want to know. This is the reality with a lot of Muslim American youth, sadly. Love that you are hitting the topics that nobody else wants to touch. Looking forward to you on iTunes.

  3. These are real issues everywhere around us. Hopefully, this will encourage both parents and their children to look for solutions.

  4. Alhamdulilah! Finally, some real talk about the reality of our Muslim youth. I look forward to your weekly show. I am so glad you are asking these questions. JazakaAllah ahki.

  5. Hugely valuable and an absolute eye opener for many of those parents with their heads in the sand. Sadly yes these are real issues and we need to speak openly and find solutions rather than pretend they don’t exist.
    Well done and keep tackling those ‘taboo’ topics!!

  6. Consistent with Baba Ali’s previous material, this episode successfully details what is really going on with the Muslim community, specifically Muslim youth, and even offers a solution. Jazakullah khair!

  7. Real issues that faces us parents in the west. Thank you Baba Ali for this show, for the openness and hitting the subject directly. Most of us are aware of the issues but don’t dare speak it up. Yes direct communications with our youth is the key.

    Jazakallahu Kahyr and keep up the good job!

  8. I simply want to tell you that I am just new to blogs and certainly savored your web page. Probably I’m going to bookmark your website . You absolutely come with outstanding articles and reviews. Regards for revealing your blog site.

  9. ASWB BABA ALI. This podcast was really beneficial, mashAllah. This is awesome podcast on how it changed my life. I’m 22 and in undergrad looking for the right company to be safe and encourage to do good things in life. I’m in this gray area where I am fighting temptations and what is halal/haraam according to islamic sharia. I am new to podcasts so this is interesting. I like how you are straight to the point and wanting good intentions for us. May Allah reward you and have barakah in your work. Ameen. Please come to New York City in Brooklyn to talk about your story to islam and your comedy show. It would be an honor for New York City kids and youth like me to benefit from your talks. And the work that you do is amazing. Keep up the good work!!!
