A Jihad for Love is gay themed documentary, done through interviews with individuals, Muslim gays and lesbians, from countries like Cairo, to Iran, to India. The documentary documented the struggles and prejudices they face, as well as their fear for their own safeties. A few of them had no choice but to run away to other countries, in order to escape any further mental torture. In this documentary as well, these individuals shared their understanding on the interpretation of the verses in Quran, and their love for their God.

Parvez Sharma wrote and directed this controversial documentary that had won GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary in GLAAD Media Awards 2009. It had also won Best Documentary Awards in Milan International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and Torino International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival 2009.
