Under the leadership of Kuwaiti Shiite scholar Yasser Al-Habib, a leader and spiritual guide, presenters and others involved resources on the chain therefore cater daily to a wide audience of believers of various persuasions. Fadak TV is known for its rigorously academic approach that is always supported by research, as it seeks to deliver the Muslim faith in its original context, that of a tolerant religion.
