🎙 The Podcast
Contemporary times have presented the modern man with many challenges.
With the many competing responsibilities he has to fulfill, he is left with very limited time to focus on himself and thus build his sense of self-worth, self-esteem and confidence. His own identity isn’t as unique anymore, rather he adopts a persona that he perceives others want to see him as, articulated beautifully here:
‘𝙄 𝙖𝙢 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙠 𝙄 𝙖𝙢; 𝙄 𝙖𝙢 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙄 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙠 𝙄 𝙖𝙢; 𝙄 𝙖𝙢 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙄 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙠 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙠 𝙄 𝙖𝙢’ - Charles Cooley
Arguably, the Muslim man is pressured even further: faith, culture and societal expectations seem to throw an additional layer of challenges.
Has the modern Muslim man been emasculated from his Divine role? Is he living a life that is devoid of any practical guidance? Where does he turn for clarity? Is he seen as 'backward' for upholding faith principles, in a world that is becoming increasingly secular? What about issues of mental health? Issues around relationships and general well-being?
Moreover, there aren't enough positive role models for him to emulate!
Muslim Men Speak
The Muslim Men Speak podcast will provide a safe space for guests to openly and freely discuss life, love and leisure; all the challenges and victories.
My inspiring guests will share valuable insights, inspiring stories of resilience, pivotal life-changing moments and mindset mastery.
The show will also be about about addressing commonly held stereotypes of Muslim men and stigmas such as mental health, emotional well-being, divorce etc. Guest stories will infuse the idea that 'it is possible'.
