We’ve perused YouTube and fielded requests to be featured and now it’s time to share our top three new picks of Muslim folks on the video site once again!
Our previous articles on the topic detailed the best young women and men and their involvement in comedy, Hip Hop, writing and directing, theater and more. Their YouTube channels provided a modern glimpse into the lives and mentalities of Muslim youth in the US and UK, with heritage ranging from a plethora of different countries and ethnicities — India and Palestine just to name two!
YouTube is still the place where you can learn the newest hijab styles, how to sew abayas, and what life is like day to day for Muslims in communities around the globe. People of all faiths flock to the popular video sharing site in order to seek entertainment, learn and engage with others in an interactive way.
Check out our list here to see the newcomers and revisit past posts on the topic at the linked articles below this one.

So what exactly are HammyMinu&Momes!? Are they a brother and sister and sister-in-law, are they super close cousins, or just really good friends? It’s hard to say but their videos are certainly humorous and educative. All of their skits feature the three of them in some compromisingly funny situations which, more so than not, poke fun at certain cultural (not Islamic) traditions that many Muslim communities fall prey to.
Their video linked here demonstrates some of the crazy things parents tell you the devil does in order for children not to do certain things.
Update II Paris???
She may not look like it but this young YouTuber, Hannen98, has one posh English accent as she talks about her life in vlogs and edited clips. Her videos center around family, popular tags, and ‘life at the moment’ which sometimes relates to her Libyan heritage.
Hannen just reached one year on YouTube and will be celebrating that achievement with a special video for her subscribers. Click here to view her channel.
