Navigating Your Relationship With The In-Laws
A study revealed that having extended family is a common set up in Muslim homes. Some say, the more, the merrier. Although that might be true at times, it only works when every member of the household is living harmoniously together. On the other hand, living with the in-laws and extended families can be chaotic and difficult to manage. We are joined by Rabab Alma who is a highly skilled marriage and relationship counselor and therapist. She’s been a great help to individuals struggling with depression and anxiety in their careers, in their personal lives, and their relationships with their families. She understands how husbands and wives can sometimes drift apart when there’s a rift between a spouse and an in-law. How can families learn to establish boundaries and navigate the extended family model?

How Do I Teach My Child The Quran
Learning the Quran is an incredible feat for children and adults, alike. It is an undeniable fact, however, that the earlier one begins to invest in reading and learning our Holy Book, the easier the journey through the Quran will become as an adult. But teaching our children to learn, appreciate and understand the Quran is a challenge that many face. How do I start? When do I start? How do we get children excited about the Quran? What about the language barrier? We are joined by Imam Wisam Sharief who is a specialist in teaching Quran recitation and retention to help guide us on how to teach our children the Quran. He is the founder and director of AQL (Advocating Quranic Lifestyle). He is also a Quran teacher, and the creator of Quran Revolution, an interactive program designed to teach the Quran to students of different levels.

Why Fatherhood Matters
Parenthood is a two-way game. If a child is blessed with two parents, there is a dual advantage of tapping into the blessings that each parent can bring to the upbringing of the child. Cultural barriers, language challenges, societal and environmental obstacles may pose a difficulty for fathers in creating a healthy relationship with their children. What is the role of the father? What can we pull from Islam, from prophetic lessons on building a strong fatherhood presence in the Muslim home? Our guest will take us on a journey of why fatherhood matters. We are joined by Mohammad Elshinawy, a father and a fellow in the Yaqeen Institute. He has done research specifically on the role of the Muslim father. In this episode, he shares what he discovered from his research with the hope to shed light on the importance of fatherhood in the Muslim home.
