Looking for Allah in England
Western society may be turning away from organised religion, but conversions to Islam in this country are increasing at a remarkable rate. The rules of the faith are unchanged since they were formulated 1,400 years ago: followers must wash and pray five times a day, fast for four weeks every year, give two-and-a-half per cent of their income to charity, and abstain from smoking, drinking and extra-marital sex. Women are expected to cover their hair and bodily shape. To renounce the faith is punishable by death.
This film examines the appeal of Islam through the eyes of two potential converts. Both are parents with young children. One is frustrated by a society that "promises freedom and prosperity but delivers racism and poverty". The other explains: "Islam offers clear guidelines, values, to bring up your kids. In Britain today no kid is safe - kids are going round murdering other children." Series editor John Blake
