Barakah Hills tells the story of the Abdullah family and their everyday experiences in the town of Barakah Hills. It is a small town with a predominantly Muslim population. The Masjid is the central hub of the town with Imam Nouradeen as the community leader and role model.
We have 14 scripts written and ready to be storyboarded and animated. All characters and backgrounds have almost been completely designed. Our preview video gives you an idea of the series. The highest cost for us is the animation, which is where most of the funds will go towards. Each episode will need $10,000 to complete inshallah which is a very low budget animated series compared to most animations on TV today. The reason we are able to produce at a low cost is because we do all the other work in the production such as writing, editing, voices, song production and design. To give you an example of animation cost, Peppa Pig cost £5,000 ($7755) per minute, so for a 52-show series that comes to £1.3m ($2m).

Barakah Hills represents an ideal Muslim community and is targeted to a post-toddler, pre-school demographic of children. The show’s main objective is to show children what it is like to be a practising Muslim as well as a good citizen in their community. Instead of trying to preach Islam and Shariah law and practice, Barakah Hills uses the hadiths and characteristics of Nabi Muhammad (SAW) as the prototype for not only being a good Muslim but also a good human being. Children will learn everything from how to have good manners, to how to get actively involved with community projects. The way they learn is not through strict regimented lessons but through seeing how Laylah and Omar, and the supporting characters, do things. Essentially, the viewers will be learning by example. This makes for an educational, engaging and most importantly, fun children’s show.
