The mother of 17-year-old Nadia Yusuf who died following a collision on Mancunian Way on Monday  has paid tribute to her “perfect daughter”.

In tribute to her daughter, she said: “Nadia (may rabb rest her soul in Jannah) died tragically in a road accident and all those who loved her are still in shock and disbelief.

The 18-year-old male rear-seat passenger was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and remains in a critical condition.

The male driver, 23, was taken to hospital where he remains with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

“She was my first born and best friend. Nadia was not only physically beautiful but she had an equally beautiful heart as attested by all the people paying their respects to the family.  Nothing was ever too much for her and taking charge of her siblings was only one of the chores she happily performed.

“Nadia was a happy teen who was beloved to everyone who crossed her path and she was enjoying her life and looking forward to a bright future.  I can’t, and won’t, tire of saying she was cheerful, caring and thoughtful to all that knew her and beyond.  She truly touched the hearts of everyone she met.

“Not only was she a perfect daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend but she was also a great role model for her siblings.

“She will be greatly missed and as our Islamic traditions state, inalilahu was ina ilehi rajioon.  ‘Verily we belong to God, and verily to him we return’.

“As a family, we would like to thank everyone who has taken time to pay their respects as well as all the emergency crews who helped her. Thank you and jzk kheyran for all the kind gestures and messages. This reminds us that death has been decreed by Allah, and we will all return to our creator.”
