Shaykh Abdul Hameed Ismail is fighting for his life in hospital after he was critically injured in a motorcycle crash.

The 31-year-old scholar and teacher was injured when his silver Honda CBR 600F motorcycle was involved in a collision with a car in Leicester on Saturday 20 April.

He was initially taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary but was later transferred to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre.

His entire family, including his mother, Rosemina Ismail, his wife and three daughters are at his bedside.

Shaykh Ismail is a teacher at Madani School, in Evington, and he is also the charity’s vice chairman.

He plays a leading role in its work with young people and the homeless in Leicester.

Rosemina Ismail told Leicestershire Live: “My son has been critically injured and we are with him in the hospital.

“We are taking things minute by minute for now until we know more.

“We need everyone to pray for him.

“Their prayers will help him and help us as a family.”

The crash happened at Wakerley Road’s junction with Ethel Road, shortly before 4pm on Saturday.

Leicestershire Police said the silver Honda CBR 600F motorcycle was in a collision with a dark blue Mercedes C220d.

Shaykh Ismail was travelling from the direction of the General Hospital and the car was travelling in the opposite direction.

The road was closed for many hours while police collision investigators examined the scene.

Police said the person in the car was not injured

Detective Constable Seamus Burns, from Leicestershire Police’s serious collision investigation unit, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision and has not yet contacted police.

“It was a clear afternoon and it’s likely there will have been a lot of cars on the road.

“Did you see the collision take place, or did you see either of these vehicles prior to it occurring?

“If you have a dashcam fitted, please check for any footage that may have been recorded.

“Any information you have could help with my investigation.”

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
