For upcoming YouTube stars Ahmad and Mustafa, little did their earlier life predict the kind of life they are now living or work they are now doing. But hey, isn’t that how it pans out for most real life heroes out there?
Mustafa Hussain and Ahmad Atieh, a part of the new generation of youth that is fighting for the good, are prominent figures on the video sharing platform where they provide wholesome content with a focus on spreading the word of Islam in relation to generosity and helping the needy. Their channel in the name of the former is now going strong at almost a hundred and twenty thousand subscribers.
What started this journey, and what lies in the horizon for the two?
Of Palestinian and Pakistani descent, the duo was raised in the United States of America,specifically New Jersey, where they met and formed a strong friendship in high school. The friendship continued – they both attended college together at Rutgers University and
graduated as engineers in the year 2018. In their sophomore year began what would turn out to be their successful career as YouTube creators with a video titled Giving Eid Gifts to Strangers which immediately went viral and amassed around 190,000 views. What started was not just their fame, but also the realization of their dream: to change the way the world negatively thought of Muslims and to help them understand just how much good each and every Muslim is capable of. Making Strangers Smile, Muslim Paying For People’s Groceries on Thanksgiving, and Paying For People’s Meals in Ramadan are some of their videos that have been watched millions of times, resulting in that much more understanding and appreciation of Muslims every time it was viewed. Ahmad and Mustafa’s activism is not confined to YouTube videos – they are planning to establish a Muslim entertainment network to take their efforts to the next level and create
impact on a much bigger scale. Their goal? To encourage the spirit of generosity outlined in the core principles of Islam, to convince every viewer – not just Muslim – to go out there and help the needy however they can, and to help people all over the world and especially
America realize that Muslims are more often upstanding members of their communities and regions than not.
They will be coming out with more details regarding the network soon, but until then, let’s look forward to more wonderful acts of goodness from the two exuberant young Muslim Americans on their various social media!
