Programming is a balanced blend of religious and cultural programs, entertainment and music, Arabic drama programs, non-Arabic films and serials, children's programs, and news and current affairs programs. Special programming is produced for all the major events in the Islamic calendar, especially for Ramadan and for the period of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to the Holy Places.
