I was on the Morning Amp yesterday with hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon, it airs on Vocalo in Chicago and online around the world.

They are one of the best morning talk shows you’ll ever hear, so make sure to show them some love!

We started off talking about a British study that looked into the hijab and body image among Muslim women and then jumped to a TV show that focuses on a Tyrant in the Middle East.

You can hear the segment I was on right here:

It was a fun show as always, and we talked about Muslim women’s fashion and the tv show Tyrant.

There has often been a debate about whether Muslim women, and particularly those who wear hijab, should be able to sing and perform in public.

Well, this video seems to push all those restrictions out of the way.

Let it be noted though, that across the world Muslim women and Muslim women who wear hijab have been performing throughout history. However, it seems that conservative interpretations of Islam have stifled that type of creativity in some communities.

In any case, this isn’t about who’s right or wrong, it’s about celebrating beauty.

We could not verify where this video came from, but the Arabic text says it’s a group of Chechen women singing a popular Arabic song.

This song has been posted and shared across Facebook, and we are not connected to the person who uploaded it.
