The Alchemy of Truth, Episode 1: Feminism

As you know (If you've been following my blog) that I stopped my wildly successful Friday Night Live to prepare for my next even more global radio phenomenon The Alchemy of Truth.

Alhumdulillah the first show started on Friday the 23rd of March 2012. The topic of the show was a topic I had been interested in for a while now: Feminism. I wanted to explore whether Islam and Feminism were compatible. There were strong arguments on both sides, and so I thought to bring the proponents of both ideas to discuss them in a public space to benefit others.

I call the show the alchemy of truth because I think that in many cases we may discuss certain issues to death, but that doesn't mean that anyone of us should be more right than the other. Exploring the ideas was more interesting than reaching a conclusion.

For making this show possible I would like to thank my two awesome co hosts Sarwa Abdelraheem and Amir (last name withheld). And our esteemed guests Mehal Krayem, Miriam Ahmed, and Hajar Rafiq.

And all the brothers and sisters who were kind enough to follow and contribute on the show.

Tune in next week when we further discuss the ideas of Feminism and Islam with celebrated UTS lecturer Jameela Hussien.
