Umm Nabeel along with her three children aged 12, 10 and 3 captured into a closed burning compartment filled with diffused oxygen and carbon dioxide. The horrible scenario left no option for a mother to save her children except throwing them out of the window. She mentioned it while talking to media persons that, it was a delicate moment when I had to decide which risk has to be taken. I had to see my children burning in front of my eye if I would not let them escape through a window which was 7 meters above ground. Umm Nabeel, when left with no way out, threw her youngest daughter who is just 3 years old out of the window. She threw her down towards her husband and other people who were holding a big cloth down to catch the girl coming down from the window.
After the successful evacuation of her youngest daughter, Umm Nabeel threw her elder children aged 10 and 12 in the same way. Fortunately, all three kids remained unharmed and successfully came out of burning apartment. In the last, she herself jumped down and remained safe and sound. The family could rescue itself from burning incident but still, their house burnt completely along with all memories and the good time they spent there. Umm Nabeel and her husband Mohammed Ajmal felt great relief for ditching such a deadly incident and thanked Allah for keeping them unharmed in the Holy month of Ramadan.
After leaving the house, Umme Nadeem shared the worst feeling during the burning incident that when her daughter asked “are they going to die” she felt so helpless. “The bad time has lapsed and we are safe but still bad memories make us frightened for what could have happened in case there was no window in surrounding” Umm Nabeel shared her remarks after the incident. This helplessness dragged her to take risk of throwing children out of the window instead of watching them roasted alive in the closed burning flat.[irp]

The family became homeless due to the burning of their house in this hour of need Madinah residents helped them by providing them a substitute residence in Al-Nasser District.
