A Platform Celebrating Muslim Identities

With Qalbox, we are expanding our offerings to include long-form streaming content across various genres – movies about Islam, television series, short films, and documentaries. We are striving to provide Muslim-centric entertainment to the 190 markets that we are serving worldwide. 

At its core, Qalbox is an exciting video streaming service celebrating Muslim identities and cultures of the diverse global Muslim population unearthing stories from our community and about our community. A platform that is all-encompassing: bridging different cultures and backgrounds to celebrate the diversity that is among us — the Muslim world.  

Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, we would like to invite you to enjoy a wide range of specially curated and moderated content that is not just limited to entertainment but includes faith-based content such as Quranic recitations and supplications, and enriching documentaries. 

What Is Content Moderation?

When you stare at multiple devices and scroll endlessly wondering: “What are the best/must-watch Islamic movies or documentaries?” 

At Qalbox, we hear you loud and clear. We ensure that every title in the media library undergoes a set of internal compliance processes in accordance with the regulatory guidelines in the various markets that we operate. This includes compliance with the guidelines set out by Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). 

We launch with over 70 titles; 180+ streaming hours and growing video content on Qalbox, and our highly abled content moderating team and Shariah-compliant advisors have been effortlessly screening titles that will be airing on Qalbox. They don’t just watch the shows, they watch the titles repeatedly so that you can click on Qalbox promptly when you question yourself  “What are some of the best films (or series) from the Arab world?”

What to watch if you don’t know what to watch?

Viewers may look forward to a wide range of content genres, including scripted programmes, movies, documentaries, children’s animations, as well as Quranic recitations and supplications (du’a).

Explore enriching, wholesome, and positive Muslim-centred content — yet be immersed in the hardships, and successes of varied Muslim journeys. Be amazed through the history, origins, and civilizations of Muslims to titles that revolve around the depictions of modern Muslim lives across the globe. 

The Hajj season is ending, but Qalbox carries five amazing Hajj titles that you can enjoy now and later. One of them is our top pick of the month.

5 reasons why you should watch Hajj in the Times of Pandemics

  1. The show talks about pandemics that have affected Muslims since 639 AD.
  2. The stunning Hajj visuals from the past and recent times are a treat for the eyes.
  3. We witnessed a pandemic. Parts of the show describe how mosques in Seville, Spain, were forced to close their doors in 1065 AD making the show extremely relatable.
  4. When Egypt was under the control of Muhammed Ali Pasha, he implemented a quarantine system when half of the Egyptian pilgrims died due to cholera. So the quarantine system is not a new concept!
  5. The show quotes well-known Muslim scholars such as Ibn Kathir, Ibn Hajar al Asqalani, Imam Ad Dhahabi, Ibn Al Jawzy, and features experts from interviews with Dr. Sami Saleh Al Bayadi, Dr. Nathmi Al Ja’bat and Dr. Christopher Lee.

You may immerse yourself in the experiences of varied journeys, struggles, and triumphs as we strive to showcase global Muslim representation.
