What is the Conviction Project?

CONVICTION [kuh n-vik-shuh n] - “A fixed or firm belief” 

The Conviction Project is a podcast which emphasizes the dichotomy between the one who studies and the one who reforms:

Exploring Islam can be tough. Living a Muslim life can seem even tougher. This podcast aims to remove one’s doubts through exploration and dialogue. Each episode unpacks and dissects relevant issues, controversies, and uncertainties.

True conviction is developed when belief is revitalized. Help continue the conversation by sharing your thoughts, opinions, and questions.
