Leap of Faith: Two brothers leave NFL for spiritual pilgrimage

Rock Center

This past spring, Husain and Hamza Abdullah answered a call. What they did next was unheard of. This Thursday Mary Carillo tells the story of two brothers who made it out of Pomona, California, to the NFL.

At their athletic peak, with millions-dollar at stake, they’d set out on a new journey, ultimately embarking on the pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Watch Carillo's exclusive, full report, "Leap of Faith," airing on Thurs. Nov. 29 at 10pm/9c on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams.
