These are very interesting and beneficial conversations. I'm grateful this brother Baraka Blue has such a vast set of interests.

Teacher. Student. Seeker.
Salaams from the Bermuda Triangle! I've listened to pretty much every podcast and several of them more than once. I really love the topics and the insightful enegagement with your guests. I appreciate your wide base of knowledge when sparing with your excellent selection of guests.
I've heard you mention several times your interst in Early Christianity which is also a deep love of mine. I took a class with Dr. Ali Ataie (The Bible through a Muslim Lens). I would like to see you converse with Dr. Ataie on the topic of Early Christianity and the Return of Isa (AS).
Wishing you all the best in your poetry and life journey in general.
