In this episode, we spoke with Kaven Siddique Lim from Converts Central, a podcast focusing on the challenges that Muslim converts face along with the conversion journey to help Muslims from all backgrounds.
Kaven Siddique Lim reverted to Islam at the age of 18 and since then, he has been active in the local Muslim converts association. He, together with a team of volunteers, manage The Converts Central — a podcast focusing on the challenges new Muslims face along their conversion journey. Listening to his personal conversion journey was truly inspiring and also relevant to the blessed month of Ramadan that we are in. We hope you love this episode and Siddique as much as we do!
