SHAFAQNA – A Muslim man on a mission to “spread peace and love” has captured the true spirit of Christmas — by delivering presents to homeless people.
Nubaid Haroon, also known as Rambo Vlogs on social media, filmed himself giving blankets to people sleeping rough on the streets this winter.
At the beginning of his YouTube clip , he admits that, as a Muslim, he doesn’t particularly celebrate Christmas, but wanted to enter into the giving spirit, according to the Mirror.
He is then seen presenting festively wrapped blankets to less fortunate people, including Catherine, who has been homeless for 21 years.
Other grateful recipients include ex-solider David, 28, who has been on the streets for three years and Teddy, 47, who has spent 12 years sleeping rough.
Mostly, their reactions are full of shock and gratitude, with many sharing a warm embrace with Nubaid, a young British Asian man.
He says: “I know a lot of YouTubers do giveaways but for me I really wanted to do something for people that needed it the most this Christmas.
“Life is unfair on homeless people and I’m in a more fortunate position than the homeless so I thought it would be nice to be Santa Claus and give out some gifts!
“I wanna spread love and I wanna make people feel appreciated so I was really happy to take on this video and to continue to spread equality.”
The video, titled “Muslim Gives Presents to Homeless for Christmas” and published on Tuesday, has been viewed thousands of times.
