“Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem”
-in the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful-

Dada and I instinctively turned to where the noise was coming from…

Less than 100 metres away from where we were parked, an accident had just occurred…

We both immediately jumped out of the car…

One of the bodies had been flung out of the car and was laying closer to us than where the accident had actually taken place…

Dada rushed to the body hoping to find the person alive…

The young boy was lying face down on the ground

Dada turned his body over and I screeched in horror as I witnessed his entire scalp had been split in half..and blood oozing right out of it..

One of His hands lay a few metres away from his body..

Dada:(while shaking his head) “innaa lillaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji’oon…”

Dada instantly got up after discovering that this boy had already passed on and advanced towards the actual accident scene…

As I followed him at a much slower pace, due to my being pregnant, I couldn’t believe..or should I say I could believe who’s car it was…

It was the very same silver M3 that had so wildly passed us earlier when we left home…

There was screaming coming from inside the car. This time it wasn’t screaming of pleasure and enjoyment like earlier. It was screaming of despair and fright..

a childs desperate voice could be heard from the crashed blue nissan almera infront of it…

Dada managed to open the drivers seat door of the M3 and found the driver laying towards his left hand side ontop of a young girl who’s clothes were unfortunately torn open and most of her body was revealed…

The girls right leg seemed to have been stuck behind the drivers seat whilst her left leg remain stuck behind the passenger seat. her body was flung forward and her head lay smashed against the radio set infront..

Both the driver and the girl were still alive though..

The girl was moaning while the driver was screaming in utter pain…

Dada and a few others who also witnessed the accident and came to help managed to pull the driver off the girl to ease their pain …


Dada:”bhai…calm down…we’re here to help you..just read….laa ilaaha illallaah…laa ilaaha illallaah….”


Dada and whoever was with him continued to recite, while the young boy went on screaming back at them

by now ismail and the kids and a whole larger crowD was beginning to come forward…

Ismail:”faaiza!…take the kids and get back in the car…just wait there babes..please!”
There was concern in his voice…

But I couldn’t…I wanted to go forward and help..I felt helpless..I felt weak…I wanted to do something to save these people..

It could be their last moments in this world..

It brought back memories to me….it brought back memories of daddy…of his accident..

Is this what he went through? Is this what it looked like on his accident day?

Was daddy also screaming and in so much of pain…

I couldn’t save daddy..I couldn’t be there to help him..I want to help these people so desperately…

But I had my kids to protect…I didn’t want them to have nightmares of this petrifying commotion infront of them..

I didn’t want my kids to see but I couldn’t seem to move my feet from where I stood…

Ismail grabbed his phone and called someone…it must have been aqeel because a few minutes later aqeel and salma pitched up at the horrific scene..

Raadiya:”mama…that’s haseenas mummys car mama…and that sounds like haseena…mummy is haseena in that car?”
(Shock and fear in her voice)

Haseena was a little girl in the twins school class…her mum was also pregnant with her second child..I truly hoped it wasn’t…

Aqeel managed to pull the wailing child out of the car…

She carried on screaming:
“Ammi ammi..I want my ammi…..” It was haseena unfortunately..

Looking at the almera from where I stood, it was impossible that the driver would come out alive…

Our gazes were drawn back to the M3 due to the disappointed cries from dada and those around..

Crowd:”innaa lllaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji’oon..yaa Allaah!!”

    Ya الله!!! May الله grant us Maut with Imaan and the kalimah on our lips
    It is so true that ur Maut will come to u in a manner that u lived so wen u lived a life that was against Islam then I will not be able to recite the kalimah on our dying moments
    Hope Haseena’s mummy is going to be alright, I had years in my eyes thinking what the possibility for Haseena could be without her mummy
    Sister plz let Haseena’s mummy be ok

    Yaaa ‎​اللَّهُ !!!!!!! That’s soo sad !!! And such a great lesson for us ….. We hav2 ponder on our every move..
    Cos we have no idea wen death will strike !!!! And its can happen suddenly !!! Young , old , sick or healthy !!!!
    May ‎​اللَّهُ take us all in a state that HE is pleased with , with the kalima on our lips – ‎​​​​آمين

    And thru other ppl’s recklessness – innocent ppl get hurt !!!!!
    May ‎​اللَّهُ safeguard us @ all times – ‎​​​​آمين

    Tragic …. Sad …. BUT a reality !

    ‎​​​​جزاك الله

  4. As you’ve lived so shall you die. Reminds me of a story i read a while back on an islamic page. Reminders for us all, death wont wait for you to be sitting at home reading quraan. It’ll take you wherever you are and that place may just be when you’re dressed like a ‘street worker’ and in the car with boys

We need 2 constantly remind ourselves of the cutter off of all pleasures (death). ɪ̇Ƒ we remember death at all tyms, it will prervent us from getting involved °̩и sin. May ﷲ make da last moments of our lives the best moments of our lives ​آمِيْن.
