Everyone has heard of the Laura Ingle Wilder books Little House on the Prairie, but I bet few people have heard of one of Canada’s newest and hottest Islamic TV Shows. Little Mosque on the Prairie (premiering it’s second season October 3rd at 9pm central) features the comical side of growing up Muslim on the Canadian prairie. However, that is not all it does. LMP revolves around several very colorful and outspoken characters. The cast includes Amaar, a big city boy who ventures to the prairie as the Muslim communities new imam (spiritual leader); Yasir and Sarah, a youngish contractor and his convert wife; Rayyan, Yasir and Sarah’s bright, outspoken, devout daughter; Baber, the former imam who is as distrusting of the west as they are of him; Neil Crone, the local radio shock jock; as well as countless others. All these characters, just by living their normal lives, work together to humorously debunk the myths and blatant stereotypes that have pit-fallen the relations within Muslim and western communities of this hemisphere. To learn more about the show check out the CBC’s Little mosque on the Prairie website. For those of you who cannot wait until October 9th you can always view the reruns of last years season on the CBC or Youtube. Hope you all enjoy.
