This Muslim Hailed Hero for Rescuing Man from Exploded House

'I just wanted to save the guy's life'

British Muslim Kayfee Hameed rescued a severely burned man from rubble after a house explosion in Middlesbrough.

Hameed, a roofer, saw smoke while driving and; despite the danger, he ran inside to help.

He found an injured man, lifted him onto his back with another person’s assistance, and carried him outside.

“It was very scary inside,” he told BBC.

“I lifted him up on put him on my back, someone else helped me take him out and we put him on the grass in front.”

The 57-year-old victim was critically injured and flown to the hospital. The blast damaged 11 homes, prompting evacuations.

Hameed said he “just wanted to save the guy’s life”.

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

What Hameed did falls in line with similar heroic acts done by some other Muslims.

In August 2022, a group of Black Muslim teenagers were hailed as “heroes” after running into a burning building to rescue residents in East London.

Also in September 2021, a Muslim man in North Leigh, Oxfordshire, was praised for successfully saving his neighbors when fire started in their house.

Azz Mahmoud, a 37-year-old Muslim youth worker in Oldham, performed CPR for the first time ever to save a man’s life.
