The LMOP cliffhanger season finale: Will she or won't she?

Is Rayyan (Sitara Hewitt) about to say yes to an arranged marriage?

Although Rayyan and J.J. (Stephen Lobo) were childhood friends, they haven’t seen each other in years. J.J. is now an engineer, and after a short chaperoned courtship, he’s ready to pop the question.

Things are working out really well between them. Deciding it’s the right time, J.J. asks for Yasir’s (Carlo Rota) blessing, which Yasir gives enthusiastically. As far as Yasir is concerned, it’s a done deal.

There’s only one thing missing—J.J. hasn’t asked Rayyan yet.

Meanwhile, Amaar (Zaib Shaikh) tries to come to terms with his feelings for Rayyan before it’s too late and Sarah (Sheila McCarthy) wonders if this is the year she will be ‘the mother of the bride.’

Wednesday, March 5 at 8 pm.

Little Mosque makes the Harvard Law Record

  • Katie Mapes is watching us at Harvard. And apparently it's not just "about" that we say funny, but "sorry" too:
    This isn't just my favorite Canadian television show, this is one of my favorite shows, period. The concept can be (and no doubt was, in whatever meeting this was originally pitched at) summed up as "Northern Exposure" for our post-September 11th world. "Little Mosque on the Prairie" follows the Muslim community in a small town somewhere in rural Canada. Link

"Meet the Mosque"

  • The Winnipeg Sun talks to Little Mosque's Baber:
    When Manoj Sood showed up for his first day of work on the set of Little Mosque on the Prairie, he wasn't there to triumph the importance of diversity in sitcom culture. "I wasn't thinking, 'Oh, great this show will promote multiculturalism.' I was happy to have a paying job," he says, joking. Link
