Mustafà Nasr 'Almā

Mr Mustafà Nasr 'Almā was born in Tibnīn, al-Janub, Lebanon around 1892.

He was an unmarried farm labourer still living with his parents and siblings in his village and he came from Shi'a Muslim family. He boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger (ticket number 2652 which cost £7, 4s, 7d) having already made the voyage from Beirut to Marseille. Travelling with him were two cousins, Yūsuf Ahmad Waznah and Fatīmah Muslamānī, also of Tibnīn. It is likely he was travelling to Michigan City, Indiana where he had family.

His cousin Fatīmah, who was the only surviving member of the party, later related in a seemingly embellished interview that all of them made their way to the boat deck, one of the men dressing as a woman to help him slip undetected into a lifeboat. She also reported her cousins and other men being shot at by crewmen. The likelihood of this account is questionable.

Mustafà Nasr 'Almā died in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified.
