“What A Relief Podcast” 84: Award Winning Artists Khalil Ismail and Umm Zakiyyah Perform and Discuss Their Creative JourneyB.C. Dodge is joined by award winning artists Khalil Ismail and Umm Zakiyyah for this episode of “What a Relief!” — IRUSA’s official podcast.

This week’s podcast our host B.C.plays the Trumpet and does Bob Dylan covers a cappella!
Well, he doesn’t do any of that, at least not in the presence of IRUSA staff – however we would probably pay good money for him to do it!

However! We do have a lineup of awesome entertainment and insight for you!

World renowned musician and budding media aficionado Khalil Ismail decided to stop by along with Best-selling Author Umm Zakiyyah to be our featured guests. It was anything but the usual What A Relief podcast. Ismail brought in his band and played song after song about gratefulness, hope, and believing in a better tomorrow.

Umm Zakiyyah, who has been regarded as the “Pioneer of Muslim Fiction” discussed her path to becoming a giant of the Islamic literary world. “When I was writing there wasn’t a genre for what I was trying to do… Initially I was writing books about Muslim issues. I was trying to find a publisher but then I couldn’t. So I just decided to start doing everything on my own” Zakiyyah remarked.

Both Khalil Ismail and Umm Zakiyyah are responsible for the co-production of debut movie, “His Other Wife” available at www.enspirednation.com.
