Patricia and Alana Raybon

Patricia and Alana Raybon
Patricia Raybon brought up her daughter, Alana, to follow in her strong Christian faith. But mother and daughter found a great gulf within their lives when Alana decided to leave the church and become a practicing Muslim. "My mother knew I had been exploring Islam… I called her and said ‘Mom I’ve decided to practice Islam.' There was silence on the other end of the ‘phone." Patricia and Alana have published a book called ‘Undivided’ which explores their relationship and they talk to Clare for Radio 2’s Faith in the World Week.
