Leading by example, the Muslim taxi driver saved a passenger’s life, taking him to hospital after he collapsed as he got out of his taxi.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Abdul Majid was driving two men to Duffield Road at around 10.30pm on Saturday, August 13. After getting out of the car, the man took a few steps and suddenly collapsed in the middle of the road, falling unconscious and injuring his shoulder.

“The emergency paramedic said the man needed to go to hospital but there were no ambulances as they were so busy. So I said, I can take him, so I took him to A&E with his partner,” Abdul Majid told Derby Telegraph.

“His left shoulder was injured so I held him as he walked into A&E and we spent plenty of time down there. The next day the couple rang up and said they wanted to give me a reward.

“But I told them, it was my duty as a human being, so I didn’t want a reward, but they said they had to give me it, so they sent a card with £100.

“We should be able to help each other, in this situation. As human beings, we have to help each other.”

Ateeq Naseem, a manager at Albatross Taxis, praised Majid’s quick thinking and said “not all heroes wear capes”.

He said: “He is such a lovely guy, he is always smiling. If it is raining, he will say something good about the rain, he is that kind of guy. He is really happy-go-lucky, salt of the earth.

“The couple were so appreciative that Abdul spent hours with them. Abdul took the initiative. Not all heroes wear capes, and he is very, very humble about it, but we wanted to highlight it.”

Allah tells us that “If anyone saved a life it would be as if he saved the life of the whole humanity.” Quran 5:32
