Zarqa Nawaz

Zarqa Nawaz is the creator of the groundbreaking mega-hit sitcom Little Mosque on the Prairie. It ran for six seasons on CBC television and is now being shown in 60 countries around the world. The show singlehandedly debunked many of the myths and misconceptions about Muslims. Turns out they are just as funny as Catholics, Jews, Protestants, Hindus and the rest of us.

Zarqa has now written Laughing All the Way to the Mosque, a comically poignant memoir about growing up as a Muslim woman in Canada. She is a glass-half-full person who sees a funny side to most things in life.

Zarqa Nawaz lives and laughs in Regina, Saskatchewan with her husband and four children.
