When Ali first meets Amirah, he notices everything about her hijab, her long eyelashes and her red trainers in the time it takes to have one look, before lowering his gaze. And, although Ali is still coming to terms with the loss of his mother and exploring his identity as a Muslim and although Amirah has sworn never to get married, they can't stop thinking about each other.

Can Ali and Amirah ever have a halal "happily ever after"?
