1/2. Zubeida Malik enters the normally closed world of the traditional Islamic seminary or Darul Uloom, where trainee imams are taught how to promote their message of peace and conciliation in what they see as Islamophobic British society. Producer Brian King
DrZaki Badawi, principal of the Muslim College in west London, discusses the role of the imam in Britain today
8.00pm R4 Following on from last year's Rookie Reverends programmes, which were repeated over the past two weeks in this slot, the focus is now on trainee rabbis (next week) and imams (tonight), or young Muslim leaders-in-the making. Dr Zaki Badawi is a high-profile Muslim cleric and principal of a college for imams in London. We hear him telling his students that "if other people don't understand us, it is our failure to communicate". This is very much the modern face of Islamic seminaries: he also teaches in English and accepts women as students. The programme then visits the Darul Uloom in Leicester, where the schooling lasts four years longer than Dr Badawi's and is much more traditional. Before moving on to looking at contemporary life in Britain the students here must grasp the classical Koran and most lessons are taught in Urdu. The methodology may be different but both sets of students share the same dream: to be guides to their community and share their love for humanity.
8/9. Catch Them Young? The early years for children are crucial, we're told. But is it true?
