In one notable section of the podcast, Davis discussed his journey of questioning and reevaluating his beliefs, particularly in relation to God and religion. He admits to not thoroughly examining these topics earlier due to their perceived taboo nature. His exploration involves questioning societal norms, such as the Western notion of success and happiness, which he deems a scam to uphold a system without individuals' best interests. Davis went on to explain that his search for meaning led him to consider the existence of God, initially viewing believers and non-believers alike as delusional.

Davis then shared that after scrutinizing various religions and attempting to disprove Islam, he embraced it as the only logical choice. His commitment to following what God dictates logically aligns with the idea that doing anything contrary to divine guidance cannot lead to true goodness. Davis then describes his fortuitous encounter with others who share his vision of creating halal entertainment and alternatives, providing a platform for Muslim representation in the media. This alignment of beliefs and goals felt like a manifestation of divine planning, validating his newfound faith.
