The Mosque Next Door

Format: 3 x 57
Broadcaster(s):  SBS

In many countries around the world, the mosque is a building increasingly shrouded in controversy. But most non-Muslims have never stepped foot inside a mosque, let alone experienced the day to day activities that take place there, or met its community.

This groundbreaking series tackles the myths, misconceptions and anxieties head on. With exclusive, unprecedented 24/7 access, we go inside one of the oldest mosques in Australia to join its community from the inside.

We meet its cricket-loving patriarch, mosque leader Imam Uzair; his best mate and community fix-it man, Ali Kadri; as well as a diverse and engaging congregation, including outspoken change-maker, Galila Abdelsalam, ex-bikie turned youth worker, Robbie Maestracci, and fourth generation mosque-goer Janeth Deen.

Filmed over the course of a year like no other, the mosque community finds itself tackling Islamophobia, extremism, and a host of everyday adventures, challenges, tragedy and romance.
