Mommying While Muslim
Disability Awareness Series: Autism & MUHSEN
Show Notes

​Dilshad Ali shares a day in the life of a mom raising an adult child with autism, inspiring and teaching us today. Tune in to hear all the things we take for granted, and all the beautiful things we miss. Rather than perpetuate cultural behavior and silence around disabilities, we break the sound barrier for Muslim Americans to better support moms in the same position as Dilshad. We don't pity, other, ignore, and pretend disabled Muslims don't exist anymore!

​Get inspired by Dilshad's mutiple roles in autism advocacy, including her work at MUHSEN, a nonprofit dedicating to fighting for disabled Muslims who've been marginalized for far too long.
