Saudi Arabia: Six YouTubers attempt to set world record for largest virtual iftar

On Tuesday May 19, 2020 six YouTube creators—Mohamed Moshaya, Noor Stars, The Saudi Reporters, Anasala Family, Asrar Aref, and Omar Hussein— will host a virtual iftar from their homes, allowing friends, family and fans to connect online while adhering to social distancing restrictions due to COVID-19 in the Kingdom. This group of creators will also attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for “Most Views for an Iftar YouTube Livestream Globally”. 

The live stream is set to take place on MMoshaya’s YouTube channel and will begin at 6 pm local time and will go one for 60 minutes.  

“Ramadan is usually a time where friends and family gather in mosques and homes to break the fast and pray together. However with this global pandemic, Ramadan this year feels very different, which is why I decided to enlist a couple of my friends in the YouTube community to come together and turn this moment of isolation into celebration,” said Mohamed Moshaya, the host of the virtual iftar.  


“YouTube has always supported us creators and instilled the sense of togetherness in us, and we are very excited about being part of an attempt to break the world record for the largest virtual iftar! As The Saudi Reporters we always love to make history and reach impossible goals, so we are very excited and honored to be a part of this experience. And as content creators and YouTubers we love entertaining people, and especially in these difficult times we feel it's our duty to do whatever we can to help people get through this pandemic even with something as small as drawing a smile on people’s faces,” said the Saudi Reporters.
