Episode Recap

Amaar returns to his large family home in Toronto, and his parents, who don't practice Islam much, are relieved as they think he has given up being an imaam. Immediately, his father arranges for him to return to the law firm and his mother sets up a matrimonial meetup.

The muslim community at Mercy misses Amaar, and Rayyan feels hurt he didn't say goodbye since she considers they were close. Baber returns to the position of imaam, which causes everyone to miss Amaar even more. J.J. gives Rayyan a large engagment ring that everyone finds ugly, but she doesn't want to hurt him since it's a family heirloom.

At work, Amaar ends a divorce case by giving advice that saves the marriage, while his advice during his matrimonial meet sends the girl away to India to follow her dreams. Yasir arrives in Toronto to get Amaar back, but when he sees how happy Amaar is to be helping people again, Yasir tells him Mercy is fine without him.

Baber speaks to Reverend Magee, who gives him advice about his bedside manner and tells him to listen more to people seeking his counsel. Baber ends up helping Rayyan, who tells J.J. the truth about the ring. He is relieved as he doesn't like the ring either, nor its male counterpart he had to wear.

J.J. gets a new sleeker ring, and proposes the traditional western way, on 1 knee, impressing Rayyan and Sarah.

Amaar's parents don't like the disruption he's had on their social and financial lifestyle, and encourage him to leave to Mercy as an imaam. When he feels unwanted, Yasir admits he really came to bring him back to Saskatchewan, as everyone needs him there.

On his way to the airport, Amaar changes plans, tells Yasir he will return eventually, then directs his taxi driver to international flights.
