Little Mosque on the Prairie 101 - Little Mosque Jan 10, 2007 | 22:27A small Muslim community in the prairies finally gets its own mosque–the problem is, it's in a church! Reverend Magee, who was tricked into the deal by the scheming Yasir, is suddenly very unpopular with his parishioners. The mosque's new Imam, Amaar Rashid arrives from the big city to smooth things over, but his easy charm and progressive ways do little to convince the locals that Muslims aren't simply a bunch of terrorists. A handshake deal between the new Imam and Reverend Magee ensures that Mercy's Muslims are here to stay.

Little Mosque on the Prairie 103 - The Open House Jan 31, 2007 | 22:28What better way to improve your image amongst suspicious townsfolk than to hold an open house at the Mercy Mosque? Amaar enlists Yasir to fix the room's decrepit electrical system before the big day arrives. Of course, the Muslims simply can't agree on what the open house should include. Long-winded history lectures? Islamic dating tips? Muslim munchies? In the end, the turnout is spectacular, but things come to sudden halt when an electrical fire has the guests convinced they're under attack.

Little Mosque on the Prairie 108 - The Archdeacon Cometh Mar 7, 2007 | 22:26When the Archdeacon announces he's coming to Mercy Anglican, Reverend Magee fears for the worst. Church attendance is way down, and the place just might get shut down. Of course the Muslims realize that they have a stake in this as well.

But he's delighted at the possibilities for the mosque's lucrative rent money.

Little Mosque on the Prairie 201 - Grave Concern Oct 3, 2007 | 22:28When a local cemetery is in financial crisis, Baber and Yasir see an opportunity. Why not buy a portion to use as a Muslim cemetery? This will guarantee being buried in the traditional Muslim way: on their right side, facing Mecca. But when they purchase some plots, they realize Mecca isn't the only thing they will spend eternity facing—namely a garish, country music blastin' honky tonk! Meanwhile, Rayyan pushes to have a woman give the mosque’s community announcements. Sarah gets the gig, but her laissez-fair attitude to the facts undermines what should be a victory for Islamic women everywhere.
