The Drew Marshall Show (touted as “Canada’s Most Listened to Spiritual Talk Show“) sent me an email last week, asking if I could recommend one of the great Muslim bloggers on Patheos’ Muslim Portal to come on his show and be his featured “God blogger” for that week’s segment. I pitched to him all the great bloggers we have on the portal that I edit and manage (Svend White, who writes “Akram’s Razor,” Nancy Shehata who writes at “Muslimah in Progress,” Hesham A. Hassaballa, who’s a columnist on the portal, as well as others) – but in the end Mr. Marshall asked if I would come on the show.
I guess he was intrigued by spate of posts on autism, faith, and family. So, despite my lack of interview skills, I went on the program and had a great conversation with Mr. Marshall and his co-host on faith and the difficulties of special needs parenting, how the spiritual issues I struggle with as a Muslim parent to my autistic son crosses all faith lines, and, of course, about the Muslim topics that always come up – hijab, women, men, and modesty, natch!
