I listened to Sh. Faraz’ most excellent talk Beyond Hijab again this morning and thought, I wish every convert would listen to this lecture.
Which in turn got me thinking. I already recommend podcasts and general speakers, but since we don’t have infinate amounts of time, I thought it would be good to create a top 10 list of must listens for new muslims. Ideally, I’d like a list to include a balance – emphasis on the importance of the 5 pillars and faraid, and stirring speeches that move us beyond mere action towards longing for Allah (swt).
Beyond Hijab is definitely on that list. But that leaves 9 other spots.
If you, dear readers, could recommend a lecture (or 2 or 3) as a must listen to new muslims, what would they be?
*and of course ya’ll know that I’ve never hidden my biases. I’d prefer lectures that are non partisan, but that respect traditional scholarship. I’m a madhab loving, tasawwuf seeking girl, so anything that would put those things down will not be considered*
