My Experience on Oman 90.4 FM for Life As It Is

Two weeks have passed and I realized that I didn’t share my experience being on 90.4 FMOman’s national radio station during the month of Ramadhan. I still remember how nervous I was as I sat in the studio for the first time and waited to go live for Life as it is.

The experience I had is one that I will cherish forever, I must admit I am proud of myself for not giving into my fear of the unknown. As you know this year I am all about facing my fears! Therefore I took on this challenge to experience new things and not turn it down because of the fear of the unknown.

As if being LIVE on national radio wasnt nerve wrecking enough, I was in the company of Eng Muhammad Farqooq, Ahmed Al Matani and Hatim Al Abdilsalam who not only knew each other but have previously done shows together so these guys are PROs! Oh and not to mention that I was the only female joining the brotherhood!

I couldn’t have asked for better people ma sha Allah they welcomed me, supported me and told me that it would be fine, and it was alhamdulilah.  I am so glad I took part in Life as it is as I LOVED every minute of being on the radio.

I got to learn and appreicate all the hard work that goes into preparing a radio show. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Oman Radio for giving me the opportunity to present, the sound Engineers who worked with us and who continue to work hard behind the scenes.

One of my favorite part was interacting with the callers, got to know the regular callers, was able to get different views on the topic of discussion. I also recognized a couple of people who called which was nice (thank you for your support, you know who you are).   It felt good to shed some light on topics that needed to be voiced in our society such as single parents, Islamophobia, early marriage and obsession in looks.

I know that many of my readers in Oman and out of Oman were not able to listen to the radio show due to the fact that the timing may not have been suitable so all the episodes have been uploaded on our YouTube Channel.

However for your ease of reference I have also listed all the episodes down below  – you’re welcome 😉
