Last week the hashtag #mecca_live went viral, and thousands of Muslims around the world tweeted Snapchat to feature the Holy City on the 27th night of Ramadan, widely regarded as Laylatul Qadr (The Night of Destiny) by many Muslims. And Snapchat did exactly that!
Here are some of the brilliant responses by non-Muslims on the Snapchat story:
The Mecca @Snapchat story is quite possibly the best one so far. Excellent stuff.

#mecca_live is a beautiful look at an example of people coming together, really want to learn more about Islam, not the Islam we see in news

Snapchat is a social media platform which allows users to share pictures and videos for 10 seconds. In 2015 Snapchat introduced ‘Snapchat Stories’ from different cities around the world, generated by users on the social media platform.
We would like to thank Snapchat for giving Muslims this opportunity to share their faith with millions across the world and listening to us!
