  • Needless to say, this has been an incredibly strange year. As I'm sure it has affected all of you, on our end, making videos and staying positive has been particularly challenging amongst all of the uncertainty. To make matters even more unpredictable, on his way back from practicing for a big Skydiving stunt (for the episode that was initially going to launch our podcast) Ammar got into a really bad car accident... He's better now but still very bruised and psychologically shook. Many have been asking questions about it so we wanted to put up a video to let you know that he's alright (considerably). We also still wanted to put out our podcast today. The links are in the description. Go listen and enjoy as we discuss with experts how we can better collectively deal with uncertainty, love - Thomas

    • Amazing group of people. So real. Thanks for sharing. peace and love

    • Yess

    • So beautiful.mannn....beautiful.your words hit me harder than that car hit you

    • God bless you glad your in one peace

    • Welcome To Da Nang City

  • I am so proud of you Ammar, i'm so gratefull that you are live and okay and going for your dreams. Thank you for inspire me with every laugh and smile!

  • Yup to conclude 2020 had some bad energy for everyone. I literally broke my phone, failed a grade, and broke my ribs skating last year. Good thing most of us are still alive. Live life with no fear❤️🔥🤘

  • My goal is to complete a full IRONMAN event this year at 62 years old, but unfortunately I have two Titanium knees, it’s never been done before and I will be the first, I’m signed up for the 2021 California inaugural Sacramento IRONMAN Oct 24th, can you help make my dream come true?

  • I was asked recently, "Who is your role model?" And I couldn't think of anyone that I truly wanted to meet and to shake their hands. But after rewatching a lot of Yes Theory's videos, I think Ammar is that person. I keep seeing the way he thinks about things and I feel like I can learn a lot from him. I have so many questions for him

  • I've been through something like this and it's weird and scary

  • I am a very experienced and cautious driver and never had a situation close to an accident since I had my drivers licence (September 1994, I am 44), neither with car or motor cycle. Last year, actually April 12th 2020 (I am watching this video on April 12th 2021) , I got into an accident with my motor cycle. The whole day felt "off", just like Ammar described it in the video, things didn't feel right and it was a weird day alltogether. So I decided to go for a little ride in the beautiful Münsterland (in Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany, I am living close to the dutch border near Enschede) to distract myself and get my head clear. It was a beautiful warm and sunny afternoon and I decided to visit some friends in Coesfeld. So I was driving on an open road, only a few cars and a few motor cyclists and there were three cars ahead of me, going only like 40 km/h (about 25 mph) on a road where you are allowed to go 100 km/h (about 65 mph) and I was curious why they were going so slowly. I stood up in my seat a little and saw that the first car in line had the right indicator on. So the cars ahead of me started to overtake on the long, straight stretch. When it was my turn to overtake the driver, who had indicated to turn right, suddenly turned left, only a few metres ahead of me. I was at about 70 km/h (about 45 mph) and I instantly knew there was no way I could stop my motor cycle in time and I would inevitably crash the car. So in the last second before I crashed I tried the best I could to minimize the impact, I tilted my bike sharply to the left to have it as a kind of a buffer between me and the car. What happened next was what I had known was going to happen: my bike crashed into the left side of the car and through the impact it was flung right over me to the left into a field, not hitting me or anybody else which was one of my biggest concerns that another person would get injured. I will never understand how I managed to get away from the motorcycle the moment it hit the car but I somehow did (I also had done countless training sessions with professionals how to get away from your motorcycle in case on an accident, that's probably most important) and just kind of slipped into the car, but not a major impact, like something held me back, like an invisible safety belt, I definitely felt something pulling me back. I also had my eyes open the whole time and the second I thought "Well, that's it. Thank you." I remember thinking "thank you", I don't know to whom it was directed since I am a hopeful, yet very sceptic agnostic but I guess in such moments everybody might hope for some higher force... The next thing I remember was a lady (the driver of the car I just crashed as I learned later), she stood there screaming and crying and her husband (as I learned later) came from the passenger side to help me. He must have thought of a bad joke because I got up by myself, took my helmet off and looked for my phone to call an ambulance, because I thought I might at least need a check up, since my right shoulder hurt. My suit was scratched in a few places, as far as I could see, but not torn (well, it's hard to tear 4 mm thick leather with thick pads on the nees, shoulders and elbows), my gloves were torn completely but my hands were only a little scratched at the balls of my hands. The really big shocker was when I took off my helmet (yeah I know, stupid thing, doing it myself...), on the left side there was a huge portion of it scratched off, like somebody had taken an angle grinder and had held it to my helmet and had taken off the whole outside "shell" and lots of the hard foam (I guess?) on the inside was gone (thumbs up for Shark Helmets #notsponsoredbutiwishitwas :)), only about 1 cm (approx. 0.4 inches) of the material protecting my head was left. The couple was actually very nice, once the lady had stopped screaming and soon after police and paramedics arrived. They then brought me to the university clinic of Münster because they were very suspicious that I had no severe injuries and that at least my shoulder should be x-rayed. Long story short, good thing they did because at the clinic a doctor, who was a motorcyclist himself, decided I should have an MRI-scan that showed that my liver, my spleen and the left kidney were a little bit bleeding and there was a possibilty that I might have to have an operation to fix it. Spoiler: I had to stay in hospital for seven days and ended up needing no surgery. What I took from it is very simple: trust your gut. Your head might say "Naaah, you're just in a weird mood today!" or "You're PMS-ing" but your instinct, gut, intuition or whatever you call it is aware of so much more... And: yes, I'm back on the road with my new Honda Hornet :) TLDR: Had a pretty severe accident with my motorcycle and the whole experience left me wondering why I had dismissed my instinct or gut feeling or whatever you might call it and from this day on I learend to trust and listen to my intuition. And I am very glad that Ammar, this beautiful and amazing young man, survived that horrible crash without a scratch.

  • To the part i heard he's still alive after the air bag didnt work, ammar this is second chance do it right

  • I know that was God who saved you that day, and I pray that His Spirit would gently lead you to Him ❤️

  • Reminder from Allah ❤

  • Glad your ok dude

  • Ammar thank you for putting those words together in such a beautiful way. I have seen death from quite close and I understand how it feels. You start learning to appreciate life and the blessings once you know it’s real worth. Keep doing what you do and keep inspiring people. Lots of love to all the guys of Yes Theory

  • We love you ammar🥰

  • your a legend

  • Hey I know Im quite late but, We're all glad you're fine. Bless whatever/whoever saved you.

  • I was in an accident when I was 17 a friend of mine asked if I could accompany him to pick up a truck we were running low on fuel the way back and ended up taking a short cut which inevitably led up to us driving off a 200ft cliff... we rolled about 7 times before coming to a stop and as I was listening to you describe it, it brought back all the memories of that crash its exactly like you described it man.

  • When God enjoys your channel...🙏

  • As for someone who just got in a wreck a week ago, it’s really great seeing this video.

  • I, myself, have never physically been close to death but I suffer from a lot of anxiety (especially when in a situation where my phobias are tested), and I hype myself up into thinking I'm going to die, or get hurt, or suffer a heart attack. When Ammar said he was calm in that moment and was preparing for the end, I just thought "I could never be so strong". One time I was touring some countries in Europe with some fellow high schoolers, and one tour we did was through a salt mine in Austria 60 meters underground. We stopped in this one part that was a tunnel, roughly 5'7'' tall and could barely fit two people wide. It was dark, damp, and in a country where I didn't speak the language. Luckily, one of my friends was on the trip so they helped distract me while we literally just stayed there for 20-25 minutes, but I have never felt so claustrophobic and helpless in my life before. I thought for sure something bad happened, and convinced myself I'd be trapped down there, and I felt myself slowly lose control of my body. It makes me think if I was in a situation where I really was in peril, would my natural instincts and adrenaline kick in to prepare me for the worst, or would I just get lost in my own fear and have that be my last moment. I learn so much from y'all and grateful you are here today Ammar

  • I had an ego death on shrooms once and it taught me that I wasn’t ready to die yet and I have so much more to live for. I was literally grabbing on heavens door begging to come back to earth and needless to say I realized I have so many goals I wanna reach and so much more plans for my future that o have to start working on so that way when I am faced with death I know I’ve done what I wanna do in life

  • Ooooh stay safe....

  • That's a sing from Allaha that it's time to role back, Allaha always give a chance to walk on his part, so that later u can't deny his judgement....

  • Subhan Allah... I kept repeating that throughout this video. Allahumma barik, ya Ammar and Alhamdulillah that you are still alive. This definitely was an important video to make.

  • This channel is full of bs

  • Yooo someone was definitely looking over you man

  • ❤️

  • You gave death the 🖕

  • Parents Duas ♥️

  • Thank god you are okay. Stay safe❤️

  • Ammar be making me cry man

  • I found your channel tonight. I am an avid viewer of exploring type videos and yet... your channel only JUST was recommended to me and this video was the 3rd to view tonight. I’ve been searching for signs.... I believe this video is one heck of a sign. Thank you and Thank Gos you walked away from that accident Ammar

  • That’s wild! Miraculous even 😊 Yeshua preserve you and bless you 🙏 so glad you’re okay

  • I'm so glad you didn't get hurt. You are a beautiful soul and we definitely need you here to spread all that beauty and love to the rest of the world. Keep doing what you do! Loads of love from Ireland. 💗🍀

  • You taught me a big lesson tonight.. Much love Amaar.. Big hugs from eastern most side of India..❤️

  • ammar is a great name for you.. in portuguese Amar, means "love" 💕🔆

  • The jealous addition behaviorally end because ash scientifically want anenst a cruel turtle. gaudy, wakeful heat

  • Why are people disliking?

  • I don’t know much about cars, but that is the reason why modern cars are engineered differently and of softer materials than back in the 70s. Car gets beaten up but lives are saved. I have never been in an accident myself, but my wife had a similar experience to Ammar’s ten years ago. So, all the people who have helped making cars safer, thank you so much!!

  • The power of syahadah

  • The same thing happened to my mom or it was like God was with her no scratch but big crash

  • I feel like your dad is still watching your videos, slowly coming to a realization and regretting, hoping to one day see you again.

  • I love you man. My heart stopped. You all are such a heart beat of inspiration. God created each of you on purpose for a purpose. Bravo friends. Hope to meet yah one day and shake your hand to say thank you. Glad angels kept you safe.

  • 2020 literally was the worst year in my life.

  • You ignored that gut feeling and you are fuckt

  • You are blessed

  • What a fucking speech man that really touched me

  • Bro! You are alive because you're a solid dude who has great family love, awesome, loving friends and your mission is amazing and the world needs you and more people like you. -Peace bro, ✌️

  • this is a true miracle ammar! if you don’t know or people don’t know Jesus Christ was with you that whole time i promise you he kept you alive for a reason!

  • The zonked care morally bake because herring endosonographically soothe under a teeny writer. sturdy, optimal rock

  • I was the passenger in a car accident 9 years ago. My bf at the time was driving me home, we did a left turn and the car skidded because the road was wet. We did a turn and my side of the car smashed into a light post. I remember screaming just before we hit. I closed my eyes and braced myself. In that exact moment before we hit I felt so much peace like I accepted that this was the end. After we bounced off the pole I opened my eyes and was covered in glass, the car was caved in just behind me. To this day I flinch and hold on tight when I'm with someone and they do a quick turn. Not that I dont trust them it's just a reflex now.

  • Glad you're okay brother. WE love you!

  • He just cheated death

  • Glad you’re okay! Love you!

  • This hit really hard.. I'm very happy you're good, God send us signals all the time.

  • IT WASNT YOUR TIME THANK GOD

  • ONE WORD ....... MIRACLE ‼️‼️‼️💯

  • There must really be something to the phrase "it's a Jeep thing."

  • love you ammar

  • So glad you are doing well amar

  • Happy ur okay AMMAR🙏🇨🇦💗

  • Ammar, you were meant for this world 1000% dude. I'm so happy you are here. I'm so grateful for your channel in a way I never thought I could be. I came across one of your videos about a month ago and I can't go to sleep until I experience one of your adventures, truths, or life- changing moments. The experiences I've encountered through you all have been enlightening, empowering, they make me feel full, like I can do the things (maybe a few of the things, lol) that you all do. The purpose you guys serve through Yes Theory is larger than you'll ever know. You all are such an inspiration and you are so blessed to have each other. I hope to one day be able to tell you how much you make me happy and feel right with myself. I am where I need to be and I know I have great things coming my way because of you all (and because I freaking rock!). You are a beacon of friendship, love, family, hope, and the true meaning of catching your dreams and making them come true. I wish you all nothing but thee absolute best and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. May you all continue to be blessed and keep doing what you're doing because you've made it so far already and you have so many great things coming. 🙏🏽👊🏽❤

  • 2 years ago , my parents and I got into a car crash,I related to every thing Ammar said, I remembered closing my eyes and I was hearing the strong sound of metal but at that exact moment ,I was braising myself to die and I said my shahada and the peace I felt at the moment was unbelievable,I just thought about my life ,everything I went through got me to this moment and if my dying,so be it !! I'm grateful I made it out alive,unfortunately my dad didn't make it ! We had to deal with his loss ,we still do to this day ,but alhamdoullah

  • All The Best Of Health And wellness.

  • I was in a car accident. About 3 years ago, I was 10 and my uncle was 20. He was not drunk, we were going to my soccer game. We got rear ended but a drunk driver. He got away from the accident with a broken arm and leg. I got away with a broken arm. We left 6 hours for my game. So I got my cast on and I played in the soccer game. My coach found out bc of all these cuts over my body. So before the game instead of national anthem, I talked out my accident with escaping with a broken arm. Also, we rolled 15 times. I am lucky to be alive. Now my uncle is married and I’m in 9th grade.

  • So glad you are ok. You definitely had a higher power looking over you. Sending lots of love and blessings. 💜

  • You have been given another life to do something great for this world. God bless you

  • I love you Ammar. You inspire me.

  • Living up to your name meaning... 😎❤

  • God is great!!!! AMEN

  • Indeed Allah loves those who are mindful ˹of Him˺. Qur'an 9:7.

  • So glad you are OK!

  • Come to Jesus Christ. He can save your soul !

  • I have had literally exact same experience... he explained it so genuinely

  • So very happy that are safe!!! This story really touched me. And brought up a memory in myself. Not nearly the same, at all. I had been at a doctor appointment and had a little bit of time to waste until another appointment. I admittedly would talk or text while driving often. But for some reason this day I just didnt. I pulled into a parking space up on the hill and was making a call when someone drove right into my car. I was parked, ignition off, and the vehicle that hit me was not going super fast. Faster then she should have been, but not speed racing by any means. I was in a small station wagon. She was in an F250. Her car won. And my car hasn't turned on since. While I was not hurt, or really even shaken up at the time the seconds of impact and right after were so long. Like slow motion, in slow motion. I have been in an accident that was much worse and yet this fender bender? (It was more than that I suppose, but it wasnt?) was so different. To this day the experience has been overplayed so many times and it makes me wonder how or why it would have been different if I hadn't made the choice to pull over.

  • thank god dude, you guys are awesome! keep doing what your doing!

  • There is NOTHING to fear. Live your life to the fullest and Fear not even the hand of death. For when the time comes for you to go in truth, you can smile at Death like an old friend, and know you had a good run.

  • Allahuakbar!(allah is the greatest) Alhamdulillah!(all praise be to allah)..allah saved you brother!!!.....its not common that a person gets saved fine with that kind of accident! Imagine a glass piece goes into your eyes...there could have been alot of thing that could have happened!...surely allah is the most merciful... Brother you might know this...if allah gives something bad its either 2 reasons...one its a punishment and 2 its a test!...may be allah wanted you to come closer to islam

  • January 10th 2020.. my 21st birthday, 3 days later i almost lost my life. i remember what i was wearing it was seek discomfort merch. my friend and i got in a car accident that left me in the hospital for a whole month and every day i would sit there and watch yes theory to smile and keep getting motivation to keep moving forward.. your eyes open to a new world and its crazy i wanted to cry listening to you explain your story but im grateful to god everyday that im here .

  • Sounds like an angel was on your side... A second chance to correct. Nothing like it once acknowledged🙏 Everything in this world is upside down...No more world... Going in one direction..... All bad. Claim what's yours that no one can take from you "in spirit". Almost time chaos is at the door. Let's say no... Claim our spiritual citizenship. The morrow seems uncertain nowadays isprofile.info/pac/emiEopZrgae3bmY/v-deo.html
