Well the serial has been on about a month and I just watched it for the first time. I am suprised, it’s not what I expected. It does have funny parts, just like any other sit-com type show. It’s treatment of Islam is quite respectful in my opinion. The young muslim minister is trying to do a good job of leading a congregation with people at many levels of devotion. Some trying to practice the strictest rules of Islam. Others trying to take a more moderate approach. Still others who fully embrace parts of the faith and strongly reject others.

All seem to be having some trouble reconciling their faith with real life. Not unlike that of Christians and many other faiths.

It is starring people that are, in fact muslims. From their point of view. I learned quite a bit.

It was interesting.
