Reading is a great way to learn the deen, however, it does not come easily to everyone. A good alternative to supplement your learning is listening to Muslim Podcast.

Compiling this list has been exhaustive because there are so many beneficial podcasts online. In our age and time, we need to thank Allah (SWT) for making knowledge easily accessible to us. Today, with our smartphones, we are able to study the deen and improve on our ibaadah (worship). Alhamdullilah

I enjoy listening to these six Muslim podcasts and I recommend adding them to your playlist.

1. Smart Muslima by Farhat Amin

Farhat Amin’s podcast focuses on issues relating to Muslim Women. She invites guests on the show to discuss topics such as, Hijab, feminism, liberalism, confidence, marriage amongst others. This is a go to podcast for Muslim women to have a better understanding of current topics that somehow affect certain choices they make in life.

3. Ilmfeed Podcast

Ilmfeed is an inspirational Muslim podcast featuring discussions with inspirational Muslims. We often like to take inspiration from non-Muslims, while this is not bad, it is important to look at our immediate community. There is so much to learn from other Muslims. The podcast discusses issues affecting contemporary Muslims and how to navigate through them.
