Little Mosque On The Prairie is a sitcom that focuses on the comedic outlook of a small Muslim community interacting with the citizens of a little prairie town named Mercy, Saskatchewan. The show derives much of its humour from the interactions of the Muslims with the non-Muslim townspeople of Mercy and by the contrast of conservative Islamic views (held primarily by the characters of Baber and Fatima) with more liberal interpretations of Islam (as represented by Amaar and Rayyan). The sitcom reveals that although we are different in ethnicity and in skin color, we are all surprisingly similar when it comes to family, love, the generation gaps, and our attempts to balance our secular and religious lives while trying to understand those of others in the community.
The new mosque opens, with Amaar as imam. Charles breaks off his wedding for Ann and they agree to marry in the new mosque. Meanwhile, Sarah resolves that she will be Muslim, Baber struggles to reconcile with the new mosque and helps Thorne find a way to stay in town after the church has been burned down. Amidst everything going on, Rayyan has something important to tell Amaar.
