A Muslim ‘Home Alone’ Film Will Be Released In The UK To Benefit Charity
LONDON: A movie called the “Muslim version of ‘Home Alone” is going to be shown in the UK
theatres to raise money for orphans through the international charity Penny Appeal.
The well-reviewed movie “Super Hijabi,” which is about a Muslim girl who wears a hijab,
will be shown in London,
and Glasgow from August 19 to 29.
The story of “Super Hijabi” is about a 10-year-old girl
who is a tech genius and whose parents are about to split up?
When thieves take the family safe, she uses her skills to
find the thieves and get the family’s things back
before money troubles force her parents to give up,
Penny Appeal said in a statement.
