My name is Saadia Khan. I am a social entrepreneur and the founder and host of Immigrantly. Immigrantly is a weekly podcast that deconstructs the archaic stereotypes of what it means to be an immigrant, a child of immigrants, a person of color, and everything in between. Each episode brings a fresh perspective on the issues we address. Our conversations are complex, challenging, and oftentimes messy. But I wouldn’t trade the messiness for anything, because what we have created instead is a new, ongoing dialogue full of rich nuances.

In partnership with Indiana University's "Muslim Voices Project," the Immigrantly team explores the relationship between spirituality and mental health. One of the writers, Sarah, sat down with two practicing Muslims from very different backgrounds to tackle the question of "What role does God play in your mental health?" The professional opinion of Jabir Tarin complements these conversations. Jabir is a marriage and family therapist at the Khalil Center, a psychological and spiritual community wellness center advancing the professional practice of psychology rooted in Islamic principles.

Special shout-out to Omar Hisham Al Arabi for Surah Maryam's recitation.
