    I’m so so proud of you, going out there showing how each and everyone of us are beautiful in our own different ways, us knowing that youth CAN change the world, CAN make a difference in this world, we all got something in us no matter how we are, or look. We can all do this together, survive together, stand up for each other. Thank you ❤️

    Even though England is the only home I’ve ever known just because I am a Muslim and my family comes from Pakistan ,I get looks of disgust ,I’ve walked passed a protest telling us to leave they’re country , it’s my country too and my home.

    • Maddie L says:

      Zainab Ahmad you’re making me think of Zayn Malik… yeah that’s awful and shouldn’t be like that, of course it’s your country!! #youcanttakeouryouthaway

  4. Ainhoa García says:

    Shawn, Khalid and team, i have no words…i can’t be more proud of what you guys have made. This is such an incredible job.
    And also, i can’t be more proud of calling you my idol, Shawn, and it’s not because you are handsome (you are) or a good singer (you are as well). It’s the fact that you are one of the most incredible persons i’ve ever met, ’cause (believe me) you are the person who everyone has to learn a bit about. The way you treat people, the way you treat us (your fans) is just amazing and that’s one of the reasons why we love you this much. Please, never change and never forget we’ll be here for you, by your side, to support you no matter what. Thank you so much for this and for show the world you are more than just a beautiful face. I love you to the moon and back.❤🇪🇸🇨🇦💛

  10. Lojain Mohammed says:

  11. Hoorain Baig says:

    The last part when the guy was reciting SURAH E FATIHA and SURAH NAAS. That was so damn beautiful. The way he showed every kind of people whether its a muslim, christain, black, white, or whatever. It was amazing. I am wondering why this ain’t on trending. Its a great message the way he respected my religion. We muslims respect you too Shawn. And Love from Pakistan. 🇵🇰❤

      We were never alone, theres 2 billion of us out here.

  15. Mira B. says:

    Wth the last boy build a homemade clock and is now arrested just because he’s muslim. Sad how politics manipulates us to associate muslim with terrorism or being black is to be a criminal or… if a white boy (no hate) build a homemade clock he would get a prize for that!!

  16. Jana, Swiftie says:

    And people ask me why I’m a fan of Mendes

  17. Slap List says:

    Depression is real and it takes a lot to over come. Type in “ RAIN DROPS “ by Alpha Martin. We almost lost another one.

  18. Nadin Soleiman says:

    „Pain. But I wont let it turn into hate.“ Strong words

  19. Maria Arranz says:

    Like if we should make this song a youth anthem
