Episode 40: Thoughts on Islam and the Workplace, pt. 2
A follow up from my previous discussion on issues related to practicing Islam in the workplace. We spend an enormous time of our lives working and the transition from student to worker/employee can offer many challenges. This episode discuss some simple top-tier issues, and I hope to get deeper in a follow up episode or two. Enjoy!
