    Assalaamu'alaykum wa rahmatullaah,

    "Extremely tragic and shocking news - Faraj Hassan Alsaadi, former prisoner and haafidh ul Qur'aan, who led the qiyaam outside the US embassy last night and spoke at the JFAC rally was killed in a motorcycle accident at 9am this morning."

    Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raaji'oon. May Allaah grant him high rank in jannah.

    A WITNESS has described the desperate fight to save a motorcyclist killed in a crash in North Harrow this morning.

    The man, thought to be in his 20s, was thrown off his bike after the black Kawasaki and a red Vauxhall Vectra minicab collided on Imperial Drive, near the junction with Elm Drive.

    Dr Hameed Abdul, 70, a doctor of science, lives near the scene of the crash, which happened at around 9.30am, and said: “I heard a bang, a very big bang.

    “I came outside to see what it was and I saw the accident. The man was lying on the ground and there were two or three other people around him.

    “One was a surgeon and another had a stethoscope and they were trying to revive him but there was blood coming out of his nose.

    “I checked the pulse of the victim and the pulse was okay but his chest was injured. It was very shocking for me because he wasn't moving. I was just so upset myself.”

    The Ridgeway Surgery confirmed a doctor and two nurses from the clinic were at the scene trying to help the victim after the crash but they are said to be too upset to talk about what happened.

    Police said the minicab was travelling up Imperial Drive, towards North Harrow, when the crash happened.

    Sergeant Chris Osborne, of Alperton Road Death Investigation Unit, said: “It's a busy stretch of road, there must have been people around who saw what happened.

    “We would like to speak to people who saw either the car or the motorcycle prior to the collision.”

    Police are trying to track down the victim's next of kin and Barnet Coroners Court has been informed.

    A post mortem is expected to take place this week.

    Anyone with information can contact officers on 0208 998 5319, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    The driver of the minicab has been arrested and taken to South Harrow Police Station.

    I cannot sleep with thoughts of our brother Faraj Hassan in my head. The reality is that this world has lost someone who was truly incredible - patient in adversity and strong in his response.

    From a wordly perspective there is much to weep for as we think of a young man of 30 years (only a little older than myself) who left behind his wife and three very young children. The family will have to gone on without him, after having endured every single hardship with him, they have been given another hardship which they will have to face without him.

    His family were with him as he was placed under detention without charge, then put forward for extradition, followed by a deportation order to Libya, then on control orders and finally also subjected to financial sanctions. The family had survived almost the full range of counter-terrorism measures that any individual could potentially be subjected, and yet they beat every single thing the government could throw at them as they maintained Faraj's innocence. Subhanallah - he beat it all with the aid and assistance of Allah SWT.

    It was only a matter of about 8 months ago that Faraj as finally released from his control order and allowed to walk a free man. Instead of walking away and building a new life for himself, Faraj immediately immersed himself in issues relating to the treatment of detainees in the UK through helping the organisation HHUGS as well as speaking for other organisations like JFAC.

    It would initially seem that there is something inherently unfair then, that somehow despite him having endured the pain of so many years of struggle, that he would be entitled to some form of respite with his family. Here lies the lesson though for me, that surely then despite our worldly desire to have our brother with us again, the reality is that Allah SWT has taken His servant at a time when not only did he pass every test that was given to him, but then went further to struggle for the sake of Allah to help others - in other words, inshallah Faraj was taken from us when Allah SWT would have loved him most. Inshallah his peace will now be eternal, we make du'ah that he is spared any form of correction from Allah and that he is only amongst those who will be first into the jannah, ameen.

    So we find with Faraj an example for the way we should continue our work and conduct ourselves - it is not simply about standing up for justice, it is about having hilm (steadfastness) despite whatever we are given and with knowing that help will only ever come from Allah SWT.

    As for Faraj, he has now returned to Allah. It is his family who remain, and so it is to them that we should now turn our attention as Faraj would have told us himself that there is very little you can do for the dead, but much you can do for the living. I would urge all to donate to HHUGS - the service they provide those in their care is invaluable and the events of yesterday only remind us of their importance.

    What a month to die, what a day to die, what a act to perform (tarawîh) before passing. May Allaah show mercy to him.
