Becoming Muslim explores the motivations and challenges of converts as they carve out a uniquely American path for being Muslim in the United States. Profiling four people who have converted to Islam, we ask: how has their conversion shaped the rest of their lives? Each person offers a different window into this diverse and complex religion. In a religion that’s often partitioned by nationality and culture, how do these new Muslims fit in? Becoming Muslim airs on Sunday, July 10, 2022 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM 107.5.

Becoming Muslim draws intimate portraits through thoughtful and conversational journalism that allows real voices to come through — voices rarely heard on broadcast. Host Hana Baba, of Sudanese-Muslim background, walks us through these stories about the joys and challenges of what happens to four people after their conversion to Islam. Listeners will have a chance to learn about the Islam embraced by these new converts, which counters the usual narrative presented in the media.
