Mustafa Briggs: These Are Just Tools To Reach God
It’s easy to get lost in the names, numbers, and contexts that inform who we are. In this podcast, we hear how Mustafa Briggs conceives identity as something that both illuminates and conceals. Piecing together aspects of identity and experience, Mustafa and other like-minded U.K. based Muslim millenials are creating a niche cultural conversation using Instagram and YouTube as tools to connect. We hear about ‘Beyond Bilal,’ a talk that Briggs designed to foreground black history in Islam, and how this project has taken him to forty different colleges and venues in a single year. As these identities enrich our understanding of who we are and where we come from, Mustafa reminds us that there is no one way to embody them. These identities are only the beginning of our journey. How we use them to manifest the truest version of ourselves is the work that must not be left undone.Support this independent podcast: http://www.patreon.com/submitterProduced by Imran Ali Malik and Zahra ParekhCopyright I.

Creatively Righteous, Haroon Sellars
Free-styling prayer, intentionality in craft, and creativity in devotion to God—these are a few pearls you'll find in this conversation with my mentor and dear friend, Brother Haroon Sellars. Though not a native to the Bay area, you could say his journey to the Bay has changed the course of both institutions and every heart he has encountered. On this blessed Friday, I hope you are rejuvenated by the intensity of Brother Haroon’s radiant spirit and that you too take the time to find your God-given gifts and bring to life, your creative righteousness.

Azhar Usman: We're Not Serious
This is a conversation with my friend Azhar Usman, a man I call the most serious man in comedy. Azhar asked me to watch Ramy Youssef’s show ‘Ramy’ on Hulu, and when I begrudgingly did, I was floored. This happened again with Aziz Ansari’s comedy special ‘Aziz Ansari Right Now’ on Netflix. As we began to unpack the significance of these two shows, we found ourselves wrestling with modern dichotomies: Good Muslim/Bad Muslim; Artists/Awliya’; God’s Estate/Our States.In this hour and a half, I hope you feel the love I have for this brother, and just how his sobering words help put into perspective the beautiful and flawed world which ultimately, points us back to God. This week’s Submitter Circle Podcast, the podcast for patrons of I. A. Malik Studio has also been made public; for those of you are not patrons, we hope you enjoy this extended auditory experience.Go deeper and become a patron here: http://patreon.com/submitter.Books mentioned:Rene Guenon’s Crisis of a Modern World https://amzn.to/2YgBAsoProduced by Imran Ali Malik and Zahra Parekh This is a conversation with my friend Azhar Usman, who I call the most serious man in comedy.

Time To Widen And Deepen Your Circles
“You plan And God laughs.” That’s something I heard yesterday from a young lady who allowed my Studio team to use a room at her POC owned co-working space in Oakland. I was explaining to her that I was supposed to have an episode out by now, but that the pitch we just gave at that meeting went incredibly well, and the work load is about to sky rocket. Good news is that we are getting closer to the dream of our own office space, hiring audio and video editors, and making the dream of our studio a reality. I explain a little about what’s transpired this week, play a clip from our patron-only podcast, and end with a clip of Amir Sulaiman from the 10 hours of recording I did with him this week. Next week will be a proper episode with him about our day together.“You plan And God laughs.” That’s something I heard yesterday from a young lady who allowed my Studio team to use a room at her POC owned co-working space in Oakland.

Hidden Treasures (They Want To Be Known)
This week’s episode is a look at the hidden treasure of children, and trying to see the world from their eyes.Unless we are parents ourselves, we rarely hear the voices of children, let alone spend the day with them. This is a look inside the challenge of being a working mother and the beauty that can emerge when people from the community respond with their hearts and limbs.Produced by Imran Ali MalikFeaturing Kari Rott, Asma Saud, Safiya, and Umar.This week’s episode is a look at the hidden treasure of children, and trying to see the world from their eyes.Unless we are parents ourselves, we rarely hear the voices of children, let alone spend the day with them.
