On Twitter Milhouse said: ‘Amazon Christmas advert hands down won it this year, proper love it.’ And another tweeted: ‘The Amazon Christmas advert is the best idc [I don’t care] what anyone says.’

Amazon refrained from hiring actors and worked with The Muslim Council of Great Britain and the Christian Muslim Forum and used a real priest and Imam – London vicar Rev Gary Bradley and Zubeir Hassam head of a Muslim school in Leicestershire.

Imam Zubier Mohammad said: “I have seen that through this little ad, millions of people are seeing the positive side of Islam.”

 

“At the moment with things going on around the world we are portrayed in the wrong way. I wanted to show that communities do work together. We have no issues. We can work in harmony.”

This advert is truly inspiring and we hope to see more like this in 2017!
