This episode is about young British Muslim men trying to find their way in the shadow of the news headlines. It centres around the stories of fish-finger-sandwich-loving Waz and Nav, two young men accustomed to stereotyping because of their beards. A few years ago they were both living lives on the wrong side of the law but they chose to re-embrace their Islamic faith and turn their lives around.
This episode follows some of Birmingham's Muslims trying to live their lives by them. White 'revert' Abdul was called Shaun before he converted to Islam six years ago. After marrying a Muslim woman from Pakistan, he's now a stepdad to a daughter and two teenage sons. Abdul has found comfort and discipline in following the rules but he struggles to get the boys - who are used to a more relaxed interpretation of Islam - to do the same. There's so much demand from people wanting to check the rules correctly that the imams at the mosque run a daily telephone helpline.
