What’s In Your Ear? | Imam Omar Suleiman

Published

What’s in Your Ear? is an occasional Saturday series where we ask Muslims, known and unknown, a few simple questions:

1. What are you listening to?
2. What are you reading?
3. What are you watching?
4. What technology are you rocking, Mac or PC? Kindle, iPad, Android phone, etc?
5. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received or an advice you have for MM’s readers?

In this week’s WIYE, Iesa Galloway interviews Omar Suleiman – Imam of Masjid Abu Bakr Al-Siddique in New Orleans, LA, and a member of the ICNA Shariah Council.
