Little Mosque on the Prairie | Season 2, Episode 1 | Oct 3, 2007 | 22:28

201 - Grave Concern

When 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.

A mix-up in the middle of the night means Amaar sees Rayyan's hair—something that will cause him grief down the road.
