Muslim
Being…Series 1

British Muslims from across the faith mark some of life’s biggest moments from birth and coming of age to marriage and end of life.

Jermaine and Mariyah are preparing for the birth of their first daughter, Rumi. Jermaine is a Muslim revert and is working hard to learn the adhaan, the Muslim call to prayer, to recite to their baby when she is born.

Eight-year-old Hafsa is doing her hifdh, an ancient traditional practice of a small number of devout Muslims. She wakes up early and learns verses from the Qur’an, then after school she practices those verses.

Hanna is a born Muslim; her parents were both converts to the faith. She and Ali met and fell in love, and they are now married. They look back at their vows with pride and reflect on how their faith has helped them in their marriage.

In London, Emine is marking the death of her mother. A final prayer takes place, symbolising her mum coming from God and going back to God.

Christian
Being…Series 1

How British Christians from across the faith celebrate life’s big milestones, from birth and coming of age to marriage and the end of life.

Maria and Peter have just welcomed their fifth child. As Roman Catholics, they celebrate each new addition as a gift to God and have baby Audrey baptised into the church in a traditional Latin service.

Seventeen-year-old Savannah has been raised a Christian and attends Pentecostal church with her family in Salford. After the death of a friend, Savannah has decided to take the next step in her Christian life and be baptised in a full immersion ceremony.

Evangelical Baptists Jon and Rebecca’s wedding day was a truly life-changing event. As Christians, they had chosen to live separately until their marriage to honour their faith and refrain from sex before marriage.

In Stockton-on-Tees, family and friends pay their last respects to June. As one of the first women to be ordained by the Church of the England in 1994, this Anglican service is both traditional and unique as traditions are followed that are unique to funeral services for the clergy.
