Editorial Reviews

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.

Customer Reviews

Characters very appealing.
Pat Onsi
This is a great show-- a very funny portrait of small-town life with a Muslim flavor.
Alameda reader
You will like this show if for nothing else but the simple value of laughter.

I am basing this on having seen the CBC TV series. If I allowed for how new and risky the attempt at something like this is then it's 5 stars. And this is the first season with no experience behind it. Just the fact that it portrays muslims as real ordinary people with the typical flaws people have, with a sense of humour, and with all the same congregation problems that other religions have, especially in small towns - it's great! By the way, if the setting seems unrealistic (a mosque in a small town on the Canadian Prairies), bear in mind that the first mosque in North America was built in a very rural part of North Dakota. It has recently been re-built near Ross ND. Settlement by Lebanese muslims goes back to the late 1800s and relatives visited each other between North Dakota and Saskatchewan. So it's not unrealistic at all. Recently the first year of the series was picked up by Dubai, Turkey, the Palestinian West Bank & Gaza, Finland, and Israel! How about it, Americans?

Little Mosque on the Prairie is a remarkably novel way to show Muslims and how their religion is practiced. Set in the fictional prairie town of Mercy, Saskatchewan, Canada, you see Muslims with liberal and conservative views; how they have assimilated into the dominate society (small town Canada); and how they interact with their fellow non-Muslim neighbours who can be just as broad or narrow minded.

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.

There were eight episodes in Season 1:

This is a hilarious series, and since I live in America, I would have never known it existed if it hadn't been featured on the Newstalk radio stations. I had to get on the internet to see clips of it. I loved it!!! My husband and I sat around the laptop for hours, laughing! I have a lot of wonderful Muslim friends, and some of these situations ring true with what I've seen them go through, living in America. Very lighthearted, and I didn't see anything offensive to either Muslims or non-Muslims.

LMotP is simply one of the best things to hit Canadian television in years.

A small Muslim community in the small Saskatchewan town of Mercy has hired an ex-Toronto lawyer as their new Imam. He arrives to find the mosque (which is simply a meeting place for prayer) lodged in the basement of the local Anglican church, by arrangement with the broad-minded priest who also has bills to pay. The community includes a wide range of strongly-developed characters, both inside the mosque and outside in the larger community. The muslims include a feminist hijab-wearing doctor and her parents, a fast-talking local contractor [Carlo Rota] and his wife, a converted Anglican; an ultra-conservative professor single-handedly raising his very assimilated daughter; the owner of Fatima's Cafe (goat curry every Thursday). On the other side, a bigoted radio-show host who finds muslim conspiracies under every rock, a mayor who can't quite crack the Muslim demographic, or her drinking; a small-town editor trying to promote the town (Wheat Week, with the Sheafettes). The list goes on.

The humor is fast-paced, sophisticated, pokes fun at the conservatives on both sides, shows the modernist/traditionalist tensions that exist in any community, and teaches you quite a lot about Islam. It speak very much to the Canadian ideal of Multi-Culturalism, and manages to make fun of that too ('Who are we as privileged white women to say what this culturally-diverse woman of colour should do?').

I've sent copies to friends in several US mosques, where it has been well-received; I'm presumably on an FBI watch-list, but I think I was anyhoo. The complete series is available, and was extended to a fourth season, which has just wrapped up. The series has been wildly popular in Canada, and overseas, but seems little noticed in the US. Inshallah.

This series offers a marvelously lighthearted look at cross-cultural life. Nonetheless, despite its lightheartedness - no, BECAUSE of its lightheartedness - it manages to skewer everyone's foibles brilliantly. There are no strawmen here. The Muslims in town have quirks and flaws, as do the Christians, and they all share many of the same problems (gender wars, generation gaps, coping with one's own values, coping with someone else's values). In fact it's the fact that they have quirks and problems in common that shows us how much they share simply as people. We can identify with all of the characters, whatever their religion. Laughing at them or with them, we might discover that we are laughing at ourselves, too. And that's a good thing.

For us American types, try accessing the CBC website and buy the DVD there, if you find that amazon.com is not carrying it. It's worth searching for, and sharing with friends.
