Great Podcast - Getcha Some
Whenever I listen to a scholar I always ask myself two things: is he telling me to read the Quran and is he telling me to follow the sunnah...the answer to both regarding brother Muttaqi Ismail is definitely yes. Great content, good practical advice, interesting topics and perspectives. I like the music too & catch myself singing the songs after listening to the podcast. Jazak Allah khair - the world could use more people like Muttaqi.
