He is just 13 but has now become the youngest to be recognized with New Year Honours.

Ibrahim Yousaf, known as ‘Ibby’, attained this feat in recognition of his efforts to raise thousands of pounds for charity, Manchester Evening News reported.

He spends much of his free time to raise money for eleven different charities in his home town of Oldham.

The young Muslim suffers a serious health condition that requires frequent visits to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

He usually rallies fundraising efforts via his Twitter
account @sugs75, finding sponsors and organizing bake sales, and also donates
all the money he gets given for his birthday, pocket money or `Eid.

“He didn’t celebrate his 13th birthday,” said his
mum Sugs.

“He didn’t want to – he said, rather than have a party
or get presents, he wanted to donate everything to charities.

“That’s the sort of young man he is.”

Young Ibby is not the only Muslim to be included in the new year honors this year.

Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, 35, has also been awarded an MBE for her services to cookery, four years after winning the baking competition, Metro reported.

Hussain, a second-generation British Bangladeshi Muslim mother, won the popular tv series in 2015.

Since winning Bake Off, Hussain has appeared in her own series, The Chronicles Of Nadiya.

She is set to launch her new BBC TV show, Nadiya’s British
Food Adventure, on 17 July and will release a book of the same name alongside

Hussain will also host the BBC Two series The Big Family
Cooking Showdown with Zoe Ball and judges Rosemary Shrager and Giorgio
Locatelli this autumn.
