Documentary about Diversity of Muslims in UK

Assalam Alaikum,

My name is Farah and I am currently working on an observational documentary for a UK channel which will look to explore the opinions and lifestyles of a diverse section of British Muslims and be used as a platform to voice what Islam means to individual Muslims across the country. In particular we’re looking to reflect the views and opinions of ordinary Muslims and I’d love to feature strong voices which are often under-represented on mainstream media, these often include voices from minority communities within the Muslim faith and I am especially interested in talking to women who are Shia Muslim. The idea would be to bring 10 Muslims from across the UK together to represent a cross-section of the community and explore how each practices their faith. These would include 5 men and 5 women.  We are looking for very ordinary people and not scholars or imams and we absolutely don’t expect anyone to represent an entire community – each of the 10 will only be representing their own views. So there is no restriction on how you should practice your faith. It would be great to know if any of the sisters on here would be interested in learning more. Please do drop me a message or feel free to respond on this thread.

Mashallah very good idea. Maybe that could be great also if you interview people of different background (from Pakistan, India, Iraq, Iran etc ) and also british people who converted to islam.

And do you know when your work will be done approximately ?

Thank you. Yes we are hoping to explore perspectives from a variety of different backgrounds and cultures - everyone needs to be living in the UK however. We are filming the series In the last two weeks of July. So hoping to speak to those interested this week. Particularly looking to chat to ladies from the Shia community in particular. Jzk.

I'm interested in this, I'm based in the UK and recent revert, so definitely not a scholar! 

Please message me with more info 



I'm pretty sure they've already made their show. It's currently being discussed here:
