Good episode? Give it some love!
Ramadan Mubarak folks! It’s that magical 30 days where we’re all hungry and sleepy and trying to be a better person. See Something Say Something is celebrating this Ramadan with a mini-series. And this first episode is all about fasting. Ahmed talks to Kamelya Omayma Youssef, who grew up in Dearborn, MI, with parents who didn’t fast. At a certain point as a teenager, she had to figure out what she wanted to do. Then, Ahmed is joined by comedian Aman Ali to talk about how he drove across the country six years ago, breaking his fast in a new state and a new mosque every night. And finally, we hear from former competitive Olympic weightlifter Kulsoom Abdullah, about how professional athletes train during Ramadan.
