Ep 185: Author & Business Coach Ameenah Muhammad-Diggins Talks Muslim Culture on the Prisonworld Radio Hour

The Prisonworld Radio Hour is winding down 2018 with a series of shows to make it a November to Remember! Joining co-hosts Jenny & Rufus Triplett is author and entrepreneur, Ameenah Muhammad-Diggins, who wears a number of hats as a wife and mother, but is also an up and coming motivational speaker.

Ameenah is the co-owner of a bounce house company with her husband but she also has her own self-publishing coaching business. Her new children’s book, Bashirah and the Amazing Bean Pie – A Celebration of African American Muslim Culture, was released this year and will soon be made into a play. Stepping out of her comfort zone to be an example for her children and her family, she is working towards the legacy as an African American Muslim woman. We had to redo this interview due to a technical glitch but the second time around is just as good, if not better.  Enjoy.

Ep 184: Cleveland Councilman Basheer Jones Talks Politics & Islam on the Prisonworld Radio Hour

Ep 184: Cleveland Councilman Basheer Jones Talks Politics & Islam on the Prisonworld Radio Hour

The Prisonworld Radio Hour is winding down 2018 with a series of shows to make it a November to Remember! Joining cohosts Jenny & Rufus Triplett is Cleveland Councilman Basheer Jones. He’s the first Muslim Councilman in the City of Cleveland and that doesn’t go without controversy.

Within recent years the political climate has been overwrought with violent and divisive rhetoric against Muslims. Although Br Basheer is a local politician, he still endures much of the onslaught and backlash of the national tone. Doing much for the Community in which he grew up as a child and helping young Black men and Black families overcome the poverty stricken area, Br Basheer is making history and making change. And all not necessarily in that order. This interview was a long time coming. Enjoy.

Ep 183: Halimah DeOliveira Enlightens the Prisonworld Radio Hour About Not Without My Hijab

Ep 183: Halimah DeOliveira Enlightens the Prisonworld Radio Hour About Not Without My Hijab

The Prisonworld Radio Hour is winding down 2018 with a series of shows to make it a November to Remember! Joining cohosts Jenny & Rufus Triplett is Halimah DeOliveira. She’s an author, business coach, and creator of the play adapted from her book, Not Without My Hijab.

One of the most often discussed topics for Muslim women is the hijab. It’s the head covering, also known as a khimar, that Muslim women choose to wear. It has been viewed as a form of oppression but to some, it’s not an option. It’s hijab, period. This episode has a open and frank discussion as to why women should wear it and why some has chosen to remove it and then why others who have removed it have found it again. FYI… hijab is not just for women. It’s for men to!

Ep 182: Zarinah El-Amin Naeem Stops by Prisonworld Radio Hour for #MuslimWomensDay

The Prisonworld Radio Hour is back, celebrating 9 Years of Broadcasting, with an all new episode for #MuslimWomensDay. Joining cohosts Jenny & Rufus Triplett is Zarinah El-Amin Naeem, from Detroit, Michigan. She’s an author, headwrapper, legacy creator, mother and world traveler.

Often times the stereotype of Muslim women is  that they are oppressed and live very sheltered lives. Being a Black Muslim female, the trifecta, is also most challenging. This episode explores and showcases how full of life and adventure Muslim women actually enjoy.
