Little Mosque on the Prairie, an unabashedly comedic look at a small Muslim community living side by side with the residents of a little prairie town.
At its heart, Little Mosque on the Prairie is a humorous look at relationships, family, love, the generation gap and balancing Muslim beliefs and traditions in a prairie setting.

While Little Mosque on the Prairie tries to neither dramatise nor make political commentary, it does show through humor that Muslims and non-Muslims all have their funny idiosyncrasies and share much common ground. Through laughter, the show makes an effort to break down prejudices and hopefully foster a better understanding and tolerance between cultures.
The comedy is family-oriented, lighthearted and fun as sitcoms go. It looks like some of the characters are still developing. Am anxious to see how they grow in Seasons 2 and 3. I find Muslim feminist Rayyan Hamoudi (Sitara Hewitt), conservative Nigerian immigrant Fatima Dinssa (Arlene Duncan), divorced college economics professor Baber Siddiqui (Manoj Sood) and bigot DJ Fred Tupper (Neil Crone) to be the most well-rounded characters. Baber?s daughter, Layla Siddiqui (Aliza Vellani) is quite interesting in that she represents the average teenage Muslim girl struggling to balance her life between being a good Muslim and a regular Canadian teenager who's into music, clothes and boys.
What? You?re still not convinced it?s a good sitcom? You haven?t seen it yet? Do what I did. Watch some of the episodes on YouTube.

the mosque has an interesting collection of people. both conservative and liberal. the show is funny and fast paced. what's also interesting to look at is the relationship between amaar and the christian priest they share the building with. they're very charitable towards each other, making the point that the religion doesn't really matter.
it's a pretty good show, and came at a pretty good time to combat some of the negative and illogical stereotypes some people hold towards muslims. its a great sitcom.

Here is hoping that the depiction of Moslem religion and practices is more accurate than that of Anglican religion and Practices. Read morePublished on Jan. 7 2012 by E. Conn-blowers

These vignettes are both fun & educational, and the conflicts/comedy described are so real. Religious diversity is so regularly controversial, conflictual, and downright deadly. Read morePublished on Feb. 19 2009 by Judithewhitehouse
