Throughout the Series

Season 4


He is sweet and caring. He can cook and he helps the kids in the kindergarten he works at.

Physical Appearance

He is of Turkish descent. He dresses in mostly streetwear.


Romantic relationships

Yousef and Sana flirt throughout season 4 and he admits to Noora that likes Sana and asks her for advice. They end up going on a date before he goes to Turkey for the Summer.

Noora and Yousef kissed at the karaoke bar, which made Sana isolate herself from the both of them. During Eva's party, Noora told Sana that they're just friends and she has been helping him with his crush on Sana.


Yousef is close with Adam, Elias, Mikael, and Mutasim. He is usually in the Bakkoush family home, sometimes without the rest of their friends (only Elias and Yousef). This indicates that he's probably the closest to Elias.

Even's experience is what made Yousef distance himself from Islam. However, Elias says something different from Yousef's story. It was not mentioned again.

But in reality, everyone’s the same. Everyone thinks they’re the good guys, but in reality, there’s no such thing as good and evil. There are just lots of people trying to stand together in groups, to not be alone.
