National initiative to engage with young British Muslims

The Federation of Muslim Organisations (FMO) is planning to make Ramadan that little bit easier this year with the launch of ‘UmmahSonic’, a special free to download national daily podcast to run throughout the holy month.

Targeted at young Muslims, the series of podcasts will feature a host of high profile guests including, athletes, nasheed artists, fashion designers, bloggers and many more.

UmmahSonic which translates broadly as ‘sound of the community’ will be uploaded at 6pm each day, and will be available to listen online and for download from www.fmo.org.uk. The 30 minute podcasts will feature a variety of topics including faith and food, staying fit and healthy throughout the month, as well as current affairs, art and culture, and the importance of charity.

Suleman Nagdi, FMO, said: “This year, in order to reach a younger audience the FMO is going online with a free to download daily podcast, UmmahSonic, to make the show more accessible to listeners who can tune in at their leisure and never miss a show”.
