Survivors Of The London Fire Recounts How Muslims Up Early For Ramadan Saved Many
Muslims awake for Ramadan might have helped save more lives after noticing the horrific blaze at Grenfell Tower. Residents have told of how they didn’t hear alarms as the fire swept through the 24-storey tower block in West London.
But they were instead alerted to the blaze by fellow residents, some of whom may have been Muslim people who were awake early in the morning because of Ramadan and were among the first to notice the fire.
The fire broke out not long after midnight and when many people living inside the tower block were asleep. Muslims were among the first people on the scene as people were evacuated from Grenville Tower.
“If it wasn’t for all these young Muslim boys around here helping us, coming from mosques…people would’ve died. A lot more people would’ve died.” said one of the survivors.
Another survivor, Andre Barroso, 33, said: “Muslims played a big part in getting a lot of people out. Most of the people I could see were Muslim. They have also been providing food and clothes.”
