  • Embracing persons with disabilities (December 5, 2014 – Runs 27:29 ~ 6.6 MB)No two people are exactly alike. We all have differences, some on the inside and others on the outside.

  • Ramadan of love (June 27, 2014 – Runs 23:05 ~ 8.3 MB) For many Muslims, Ramadan is about rituals — the ritual of fasting, the ritual of night prayers and the ritual of reciting Qur’an.

  • True unity of hearts (June 20, 2014 – Runs 16:59 ~ 8.4 MB) Talk of unity within Muslim communities is often seen as being clichéd and practically evasive.

  • Forecast of faith (February 21, 2014 – Runs 18:32 ~ 4.2 MB) This winter, we’ve had blowing snow warnings, snow squall warnings and even a rain warning. Weather makes for an easy topic for light chats, but is there more to it? What’s the significance of weather for the believers?
