For Uttar Pradesh’s ambulance driver Faizul, working during the ongoing pandemic is more important than Ramadan ‘rozas’. An ambulance driver, Faizul is providing free services to the needy and poor people amid the COVID-19 pandemic, including performing the last rites of orphans.
Faizul is a resident of Attarsuiya locality in Prayagraj, and has been providing services of ferrying dead bodies of COVID-19 patients free of cost.
For a decade now, Faizul has been providing vehicles to ferry the dead bodies of poor people free of cost. He has been spending most of his time helping people in need amid the pandemic.
“These are difficult times. I move out as soon as I get a call. In such circumstances, it is not possible to keep ‘roza’ but I know Allah understands,” he told IANS.
Faizul never charges people for his services, and accepts whatever people give him out of compassion.
What a hero!

Faizul, who has chosen to stay single, said: “If I get involved in worldly things then my work may be interrupted, so I do not want to get married.”
According to Times Now, Faizul began ferrying dead bodies on a cart and later took a loan to buy an ambulance.
