Female motorist rescued by Dubai taxi driver
The holy month of Ramadan focuses on placing an emphasis on showing compassion, forgiveness, patience, and also helping those that are less fortunate and those that are in need.
Last Saturday, a taxi driver who was employed at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai who hails from Bangladesh help rescue a female motorist who was stranded. The driver, Raheem Abdul Haq, 38, was quick in getting into action when he had to help save a female motorist who was seen stranded in Dubai Internet City. Apparently, her can had stopped working very late in the night at 11:00 PM. Raheem Abdul Haq decided to help the Sudanese woman and drove for two hours in search of assistance. The taxi driver had worked in Dubai for the last nine years.
The Sudanese woman had parked her car near the metro and then took the metro to go for an Iftar. She was surprised to learn that her car was not working when she had returned back. She called a friend of hers for a car battery charger. Her friend had arrived with a car battery charger, but even then the car did not work and then the both of them were left stranded near the area in the dark.
Luckily, Abdul Haq was also standing by the area and offered to help them by jumpstarting the car. But all his attempts also failed at jumpstarting the car. He then decided to take responsibility and decided to contact an auto repair shop to have the car fixed, get a transport company to drive the women back to their homes in Ajman and also do the follow ups on the car’s maintenance. This goes to show the kind nature of the taxi drivers in Dubai. And how the Holy month of Ramadan helps the compassion and helpful nature be even more emphasized in every person practicing Ramadan.
