Ali Huda: The Netflix for Muslim Kids

Ali Huda Review, Muslim Netflix

This post contains affiliate code. Please see my disclosure at the end of the post.

As a Muslim Mother, it’s very important to find media like Ali Huda, that is relatable and can teach the kids different aspects of their religion in a kid fun way. This market is growing larger and we are seeing more and more Islamic Media for children which is great. I was pleasantly surprised to find out about Ali Huda TV. This product is basically the Netflix for Muslim children. Their goal is to entertain and education Muslim children about Islam in a fun way with 1000’s of shows exclusively for Muslim Kids.

Our Experience with Ali Huda:

I didn’t think much of it or have high expectations until I was given a chance to review it by participating in a 1-month trial. The first few days all I could think about was how am I going to have the kids watch it under my supervision. I really didn’t want them on the iPad because they are going through a phase of sibling rivalry at its worst since they are so young (almost 4 years and 2 years). After reading up the FAQ’s on the website I then found out they were accessible through Roku and this made me REALLY happy! After following the instructions which were super easy and I had it up and going on Roku in a few mins. And that was the start to my kids falling in love with Ibo & Adam from the Brainy Bunch!

Ali Huda Content:

The episodes average about 1.5-3 mins long which is different to what they are used to with normal series on Netflix or Amazon Prime that last an average of 24 mins. So this was something I had to get used to. The great thing about Ali Huda is that on the Roku, it will work exactly like Netflix and go onto the next episode so I don’t have to baby sit the TV. After a certain number of episodes, it will pause automatic playing and ask if we still want to continue watching which I also found to be a great feature. It works the same way on the iPad & iPhone. Since I don’t own an Android I can’t say how it works on there.

The content is divided by age group and also categories like TV, Arabic, Quran, Nasheeds, Travel, etc. This makes it easy to search you are able to review what each program/series is about before starting to watch it. Most if not all for my kids’ age group are pretty short videos. There are some series that are still being updated slowly, but many others have at least 5 or up to 50 episodes. I got a notification today by email when a new episode/series was uploaded which was useful to know!

Features of Ali Huda:

I have not had any issues with the program so far, nor has it been slow for me or gotten stuck as Netflix tends to do. I love how it has been designed and how user-friendly it is.

  • It can be used on an iPhone, Android, iPad, Tablet, Laptop, Apple TV and Chromecast.
  • You can get HD streaming access to all the content and all future releases instantly.
  • It funds producers to make more awesome content for Muslim kids worldwide.
  • The shows are curated exclusively for Muslim kids to entertain & educate on Islamic values.
  • It is free of ads. This was another plus as with Youtube, for example, I am always having to hear whining when the video doesn’t start immediately or just stops for an AD.

    There seem to be a number of ‘channels’ coming up for kids programmes. So important to have islamic based programmes for the kids, will check out Ali Huda.

    Thank you for this review of Ali Huda! I’ve been thinking of trying it myself and was wondering how to hook it up to my TV. It’s good to know that it works with Roku!

    I have this app on my phone! The kids love the arts & crafts video that they do, which we always try out after we watch.

    Such a nice initiative to get filtered and Islamic content for our little ones. It’s getting harder and harder to restrict kids these days.

    I’ve got two children nearly the same age as your little’uns (4.5 and 2.5) so I understand the rivalry very well. It’s amazing how they are with each other though. Currently they do watch Youtube when I’m cooking and it’s so hard having to keep an eye on what they’re watching so this will be good as inshallah everything will be ok as it’s Islamic. I will definitely check them out, thanks 🙂

    I have been using http://www.MuslimKids.TV for my kids and they love it! Every morning, this is the first thing that we watch. My youngest son can’t watch anything else but the shows on Muslim Kids TV. I have tried other channels but they just get bored and wants Mama and Lulu or Hurray for Baba Ali. It is also available on iOS and Android so when we travel, they can still access all the shows and games. Oh yeah, they have so much games that I don’t have to worry if it contains any violence. So much print materials as well.
