Azfar decided it was time to share his humor and stories with the world, luckily people liked them and he’s still alive and well. His comedy is a mixture of thoughts in the moment and not everything he feels will earn him a fatwa. If you don’t know what a fatwa is, don’t worry, if you do, Azfar has reason to be concerned. Azfar also co-hosts a few podcasts, Time-Out Sports Radio and the Modern Day Muslim podcast available on I-Tunes, Spotify and Google Music.
