The more he learned, the more disappointed he felt. On the edge of abandoning his faith, Mustafa prayed for Allah to show him the truth. Little did he know that he would find his answer in a coffee shop in Mecca. There he met a charismatic tribesman with a taste for iced lattes and the knowledge of an scholar.
