WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING

A fascinating watch.

BARONESS SAYEEDA WARSI
Former Minister of State for Faith and Communities

Ahmed Peerbux is an excellent researcher and a canny observer of the human condition.  This film is genuinely revelatory, casting light on a little-known aspect of the story of Islam in the United Kingdom.  Told with insight and compassion, this ranks as a remarkable and exciting debut.

PETER KOSMINSKY
BAFTA-winning Writer/Director

The forgotten story of the pioneers of the first, genuinely native British Muslim community, Blessed are the Strangers is by turns fascinating, thought-provoking, moving. It shows that Islam is not some exotic alien import but can be - indeed, has now become - another British religion, not just compatible with but an inherent part of our society.

JAMES FERGUSSON
Journalist & author of 'Al-Britannia, My Country:
A Journey Through Muslim Britain'

A historical record, an archival contribution to the story that is ‘British Islam’...For those interested in Muslim communities of the UK and the West, this is really a must-watch.

H.A. HELLYER
Senior non-resident fellow at the Atlantic Council & author of 'Muslims of Europe: the ‘Other’ Europeans'

An evocative tale of two communities that form a crucial chapter of British Islam. It's a journey that is masterfully retold, intimately conveyed, and skilfully points towards shared histories and evolving horizons.

REMONA ALY
Journalist, Commentator & Broadcaster

A powerful documentary that brings to life the diversity, beauty and magnetic pulling power of Islam.

MAMOON YUSAF
Author of 'Inside the Soul of Islam'

“A beautiful movie.”

MARK SEDGWICK
Professor & Author of 'Western Sufism: From the Abbasids to the New Age'
