save his life and he died of his in­juries in the early hours of Tues­day.

His sis­ter spoke to the Ex­am­iner at the fam­ily home in Or­chard Street, Sav­ile Town, Dews­bury, he shared with his wife who is six months preg­nant, his el­derly par­ents and two chil­dren – six-yearold daugh­ter Ikra and his 18-months-old son Mo­ham­mad.

His sis­ter, who didn’t want to be named, said dozens of mourn­ers had at­tended the fu­neral ser­vice at a lo­cal mosque on Thurs­day. She de­scribed her “gor­geous” baby brother who she said was loved and adored by all who knew him. She was his only sis­ter and they had two broth­ers.

She added: “He was a beloved fa­ther, hus­band, brother and son.

“He was loved by the com­mu­nity and had lived his en­tire life in Dews­bury and at­tended lo­cal schools. He had had sev­eral jobs in­clud­ing a spell work­ing for Fox’s Bis­cuits.

“He was an ex­tremely pop­u­lar per­son who was well-liked, a pleas­ant and happy-go-lucky man who lived for his fam­ily.

“We are wait­ing for an­swers from the au­thor­i­ties and for the in­quest to be opened.

“Our faith in God will help us get through. It was God’s will for his life to end in that way.

“All we can do is to ask for ev­ery­one to pray for him and our main con­cern is to help and sup­port the fam­ily and his chil­dren. Our faith glues us to­gether.”

Muham­mad worked at Maxi’s Piz­zas, in Denby Dale, and his sis­ter said: “He had only had the job for two weeks and we un­der­stand he was de­liv­er­ing at the time of the ac­ci­dent. He was a gor­geous lad, the baby of the fam­ily and his good deeds and name will live on through his kids.”

A col­league at Maxi’s said: “He was a hard work­ing, hon­est lad. He was a fam­ily per­son. We will re­ally miss him.”

Any­one who wit­nessed the col­li­sion or saw ei­ther cars prior to the col­li­sion is asked to con­tact the po­lice via 101 quot­ing log num­ber *2337 of No­vem­ber 5.

An in­quest has yet to be opened into his death.
