[Talking Seerah Ep 15] Laying the Foundations of the First Islamic State

Despite facing rejection from the strong and notable tribes to protect the Da'wah, Allah's support came from somewhere least expected. A small group of six men from Al-Khazraj embraced the Deen and Islam rapidly spread across the households of Yathrib leading to the first pledge of Aqabah. Mus'ab ibn Umayr (RA) was then sent to Yathrib to teach the new Muslims and support them in their Da'wah. Mus'ab and the new Muslims succeeded in transforming the society of Yathrib from Kufr to Islam in...


Ep 41: Does “Israel” Have a Rightful Claim to Palestine?

In this episode, we welcome a special guest, born and brought up in Palestine, with a deep understanding of the nations and people who inhabited this land from many thousands of years ago till today. The history and chronological events help us to understand the rightful occupants of Palestine, whether "Israel" has any claim to it, and how Muslims should be prepared to expose the post-Holocaust narrative of 'A Land without a People, for a People without a Land'. Special Guest: Rashel.


Ep 40: Will the Ceasefire Lead to the Surrender of Al-Quds via ‘Internationalisation’?

As the Ceasefire between Hamas and the terrorist state of “Israel” comes into action, and the weapons are put down by the brave mujahideen, the far more dangerous political proposals now enter the scene; be it the trap of Hamas joining the treacherous PLO or the Internationalisation of Jerusalem: a catastrophe for the Ummah. As a follow-up to the previous episode that covered the attacks on Al-Aqsa and how we should respond, this episode we deconstruct the political proposals. We discuss...


Ep 39: #AlAqsaUnderAttack - How Will We Respond?

Another Ramadaan, another attack on our brothers and sisters in Palestine. This time the haughtiness of the Jews reached new heights as they attacked Muslims during the Taraweeh prayer using rubber bullets and stun grenades, injuring hundreds. The brothers discuss these events, the forced evictions of Palestinian families from Sheikh Jarrah in occupied East Jerusalem and the anniversary of the Sykes-Picot Agreement which paved the way for the carving-up of Muslim lands and led to the...


Ep 38: Biden Accuses Turkey Of Genocide - Why Now?

When the United States of America, the nation stained with the blood of hundreds of millions accuses another of a Genocide, then there is usually an ulterior motive. Listen to this week's podcast where the panel discuss the recent accusations from the White House in regards to the "Armenian Genocide". Special Guest: Rashel.


Ep 37: Chauvin Conviction, European Super League Dead, Racism & Greed

With Derek Chauvin behind bars and #BlackLivesMatter protestors celebrating a victory, we look at the real cause of institutionalised racism in the West. Not long after it's announcement, the European Super League wasn't just about football but rather about what the dirty ideology of Capitalism brings to the world, namely greed and inherent racism - the panel looks to give indepth insight into this rare mishap by the super capitalists and how very quickly the cracks in their ideology can...


Ep 36: Pakistan Crackdown, Taliban Victory & The Ummah's Military Strength

In this episode, we look at the ongoing riots in Pakistan due to Imran Khan's government seemingly siding with the French by imprisoning TLP leader. We discuss whether America have achieved their objectives in Afghanistan as they've formally announced the withdrawal of troops by 11th September 2021, 20 years after 9/11. Most importantly, the panel discusses whether the Muslims today with all their resources, strategic geographic location and military might could be a force to be reckoned...


Ep 35: Batley Blasphemy, Bangladesh Modi Protests and Moon Sighting

In this episode of the Talking Deen podcast we decided to try something different by taking a more informal roundtable discussion type approach. We cover the Batley Grammar School controversy and the fallout it has led to. We also discuss the anti-Modi protests and the encouraging signs coming from the Ummah in Bangladesh. And we also speak about the inevitable annual moon sighting debate that we are all ‘eagerly anticipating’ before the start of the blessed month of Ramadaan. Special...


Ep 34: Islam on Trial - Guilty Until Proven Innocent

Not a day passes that Islam is not questioned or blamed for problems in every corner of the globe. Why is it that many Muslims struggle to show confidence in their Deen when pressured? Should we not be the ones questioning their falsehood rather than trying to fit Islam into the status quo? This week we discuss these important issues, how Islam is constantly on trial, and how Muslims regularly find themselves on the defensive. Special Guest: Rashel.


[Talking Seerah Ep 14] The Messenger's (SAW) Quest for Support (Nusrah)

In the 10th year of Prophethood the Messenger (SAW) approached visiting tribes, calling them to Islam and asking for their support (nusrah) until Allah gave him victory. Some tribes outright rejected him whilst others placed conditions on their offer of support. What was the response of the Messenger (SAW) to these conditional offers and did the support include a request to seize power as some argue?


Ep 33: The Deep State Holds The Trump Card

Who is the Deep State? Are they shadowy characters hidden away from the public? The Illuminati? Or Reptilians in human costumes? There has been an increased mention of the Deep State in mainstream media over recent months, and in particular in reference to its opposition to former US President Donald Trump. In this week's Podcast we delve into this notion of a Deep State. Special Guest: Mazhar.


[Talking Seerah Ep 13] Israa' wal Mi'raaj and the significance of Al-Aqsa

Following the year of sorrow, Allah (SWT) blessed the Messenger (SAW) with Israa' wal Miraaj where he was taken from Masjid al-Haram to Masjid Al-Aqsa and ascended through the 7 heavens to Allah (SWT) in one night. This event highlighted the leadership and finality of Muhammad (SAW) amongst all the great Prophets of Allah (AS) and the blessed status of Al-Aqsa and its surroundings. We discuss how the Sahabah and the great Muslim leaders of the past understood the significance of Al-Aqsa and...


Ep 32: Why Does the West Want to Ban Political Islam?

Calls to ban political Islam are gaining momentum in the West, following recent comments by Austria's Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and France's President Emanuel Macron. They have charged political Islam with causing "terrorism", with their real objective being to change Islam and secularise Muslims. In this week's Podcast we explain the importance of the political aspect of Islam, why the West is threatened by it and what Muslims must do to counteract this open attack on Islam. Special Guests:...


[Talking Seerah Ep 12] Did The Year of Sorrow Impact The Da’wah?

Three great calamities befell the Messenger (SAW) in the year of sorrow. The death of his close uncle Abu Talib, followed by the death of his beloved wife, Khadijah (RA), and finally the humiliating rejection by Banu Thaqif after he approached them for protection. Although these events would have caused immense personal grief and physical harm for the Messenger (SAW), to what extent did these events impact the Da'wah and mission of the Messenger (SAW)?


Ep 31: France Boycott, False Flags and Defending the Prophet (SAW)

France's secular attack on Islam and the Messenger (SAW) has unified the Ummah in her defence of the Messenger (SAW) through the boycott of French products and mass protests, causing Macron to back track and soften his stance. In this episode we discuss the impact of these efforts and whether the recent "terrorist attacks" in France and Austria are a deliberate attempt to distract the Muslims from taking a unified stance against France and Secularism. Special Guests: Jahirul and Rashel.


[Talking Seerah Ep 11] Was the Migration to Abyssinia a Political Move?

In an increasingly hostile environment with no end to the persecution at the hands of Quraysh in sight, the Messenger (SAW) allowed the Muslims to migrate to Abyssinia for protection under a just king, An-Najashi. However, were the migrations to Abyssinia only about fleeing persecution or was there a political objective that the Messenger (SAW) sought to achieve?


Ep 30: Are Muslim Rulers Normalising A World With No Palestine?

Sudan are the latest country to Normalise relations with "Israel" this week after Saudi Arabia paid the £259m compensation to the US to remove Sudan from the US list of State Sponsors of terrorism. In this week's Podcast we discuss these Normalisations, as part of Trump's Deal of the Century and how they pave the path for the permanent extinction of Palestine. We also discuss the role of these treacherous Muslim rulers and whether Saudi Arabia will be next. Special Guest: Rashel.


Ep 29: Why Did Macron Claim Islam Is In Crisis

On the 2nd of October 2020 French President Emmanuel Macron described Islam as a religion in crisis all over the world in his high-profile address on battling Islamic "radicalism" and the "parallel society" of Muslims in France. In this Podcast, we analyse this latest attack on Islam and Muslims in France and discuss what Macron is referring to when he mentions 'Islamic Separatism' and his proposed laws to "defend the republic and its values...". We also highlight the hypocrisy of the West...


Ep 28: Is Sadaqah the Answer to the Problems Muslims are Facing?

The Ummah is suffering one of its darkest periods in the history of Islam, whether it be the persecution of Muslims in Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Burma or Kashmir. In response, many sincere Muslims have resorted to charity and dedicated their time, wealth and efforts to raise vast sums to help their brothers and sisters suffering in war-torn and poverty stricken lands, but is charity or Sadaqah the solution? In this episode we examine the concept of charity and deconstruct how Sadaqah should be...


[Talking Seerah Ep 10] Muslims Withstand the Brutal Boycott

In an attempt to end the mission of the Messenger ﷺ, the Quraysh initiated an economic and social boycott against the Muslims and the Hashemites causing immense suffering. In this episode we discuss how the hostile environment generated by the Quraysh led to the conversion of two of Islam’s greatest prior to the 3-year siege that the Muslims withstood, continuing with their noble mission.
