Salam,

Did anyone watch this last night?! What did you think of it?

I thought it was such a great program that showed a really interesting cross-section of English Muslim women converts. Real Dawah. Sometimes the beauty of Islam is shown by less practicing Muslims which is something we should always remember.

It's on iplayer for 7 days so make sure to catch it!!

 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01qfqz5



Growing numbers of young British women are converting to Islam. Shanna Bukhari, a 26-year-old Muslim from Manchester, sets out to find out why girls are giving up partying, drinking and wearing whatever they want for a religion some people associate with the oppression of women.

This warm documentary follows the highs and lows of five girls as they embrace their new faith. From adapting to a religion that allows a man to marry up to four wives to the acceptance of friends and family, it isn't always easy.

You know I thought it was going to be rubbish. You know the "I'm a Muslim, I dress like this, so there for dressing like this is Islamic". But it wasn't. I was surprised.

I quite liked it.

You know what was lovely about this, that the kindness shown by the revert sister went a long ways to pointing the presenter to the right path. alhumdulillah.

I liked this programme too.  It gave an interesting insight into the lives of converts and I liked the different stories of each woman.  I think there's a lot to be said for watching people pray.  Shanna, the model presenter, was moved by it.  People see that peace and tranquillity and want it.

Are we talking about the same program here?

I don't remember seeing any guys let alone a gay guy that wanted a male Muslim wife?
I'm sure I would have remembered that if I had seen it?

This one was of a British born Pakistani model. Who went about asking white converts why they practice Islam while she doesn't.
In the end she sort of realises she hasn't been a good Muslim. And even though she will continue to model she said she wont do do stuff that is too revealing stuff like swimware any more.

They're Welsh and Glaswegian repectively. Not English, they have different languages entirely (which the scottish sis might not speak but the welsh sis almost certainly speaks welsh).

I have the worst time talking to the tax people, all tax matters regarding london are dealt with in cumbernauld, they have very broad accents, I live in constant fear of upsetting them and being slapped with a massive fine in return!

They all spoke perfect English.
The reason why you could not understand them is you are not used to some of the accents we have here.
Welsh is another language. But no one here was speaking Welsh.
Welsh is a form of Celtic, which is the language people spoke in the British Isle before the Germans invaded and imposed English, a form of German on everybody.
You didn;t hear Welsh, what you heard was English being spoken in a Welsh accent.
I have never found that hard to understand.
But I do find some Irish accents hard to understand.

Lol totally agree with you there. That's the first accent that was completely incomprehensible to me in the UK lol!!

I thought the documentary was excellent, they showed how things were and all the different women's emotions and why they converted which people desperately needed to know. Great Dawah!!

Nice video.

But Welsh, Scottish, whatever... I need subtitles for all you Brits!   Cheesy

Seriously, when I watch a British TV show, I have to turn on the subtitles!

tsk tsk...you should've watched it when it wasn't private Grin

I didn't find it unusual. That's what happens all the time, right? Born muslims stray away and later in life due to whatever reasons they pay more attention to the deen. And there are others who don't do it at all.

And you know what? I saw the link the time sis Fozia posted it but it was late in the night so decided to watch in the following morning which I forgot.

Mango is nice fruit especially if transformed to juice. You can earn a lot of $$$ from it..  Wink
