In this very personal and emotional episode of the Blood Brothers podcast, Dilly and Aki catch up with their childhood friend Imraz Achtar aka ‘Babz’ from Bedford.
Babz explains how the tragic death of his 20 months-old son Aakif last June had positively transformed his life, from a non-practising Muslim to someone who became committed to Islam overnight – from praying his five daily prayers, giving up haram habits, learning Arabic, making Umrah, and then fulfilling Hajj this year.
The guest also describes how much time he wasted when he was not practising, as well as the problematic nature of giving up major sins and vice gradually.
Topics of discussion also include Dilly and Babz reminiscing childhood memories when they got into fights, how to cope with the loss of a child, and engaging different Islamic groups and movements as a newly practising Muslim.
