When billions of people around the world opened Snapchat yesterday, the beauty of what they saw overwhelmed them. Snapchat featured a live story about Makkah on the 27th of Ramadan, a day highly regarded to be The Night of Power.
It is the city which never sleeps, and millions of Muslims from all over the world flock to Makkah to spend this month in the spiritual hub of Islam.
If you haven’t watch the story yet, you should! Muslim or not, people flooded Twitter with tweets about how beautiful and heart-warming the live feature was and praised the unity Islam brings. Many changed their whole outlook about Islam and even decided to find out more about this beautiful religion that had brought people of all cultures, languages and walks of life in one place.
It started first with an introduction to the blessed night.
