4Shbab is the first Islamist musical channel ever launched in the Arab world. 4Shbab's story and its protagonists reflect the melting pot of cultural contradictions that is the Middle East today: how to be modern, fond of music, and Muslim?
They want the same things anyone else does in the 21st century, fame, glory, and success. But they want it the Islamic way, without compromising their values. Pop Goes Islam will be a way of discovering the inner dynamics of Islam by following Abu Haiba, the boss of the channel, and veiled model Yasmine Osman as they try to achieve their dreams.
