MindfulMuslim

This month we have been talking about the dreaded “who are you?” question, where everyone has something to say, but it’s not always everything we have to say. Whether we avoid the question intentionally or because we frankly have no clue who we are, or whether or not we want to answer with what is socially accepted or what is in line with our values – this podcast will cover the A-Z of the perfect identity crisis.

Muslims worldwide, in every generation, and every culture, are often torn between who their parents are, who they want to be, and who they are expected to be. This can result in the feeling of never truly belonging to any group, label, or category. Having a sense of belonging is important to our wellbeing, but does it shape who we really are?

Islam is something that started out as strange and will always remain strange, so how does this effect our Muslim identity? Is there such a thing? Is it really that deep?

Listen in to our podcast this month with graduate Mashuda from Birmingham, a young Muslim, who grew up in one of the most diverse cities in the UK, where we discuss the following issues:

  • The definition of identity, and the Islamic identity
  • How growing up in a diverse society affects identity
  • What one should do when experiencing an identity crisis
  • The importance of staying true to yourself and your values

Next month we are talking about pre-marital relationships and how it affects your mental health, do you have any question you would like us to answer? Please email us your questions to: info@inspiritedminds.org.uk.
