When NBC’s correspondent Mary Carillo asked Husain, 27, why did he take decide to go on a trip to Mecca in 2012, he said “it is a long story…Last year, there was a tug war inside in my heart in my soul…something was just drastically missing.”

“There’s more to life than this” he said, adding that he and Hamza, 29, felt the same towards deeply needing to do something beyond playing football.
