Nearly 300 donors have contributed $18,000 to honor the memory of the victim, 19-year-old Mohammad Abbas of Perth Amboy, who was tragically killed when he was fatally struck by a truck while riding his motorcycle to the mosque.
Ali-Ahmed Shah, Mohammed’s friend, wrote in the GoFundMe, “Mohammad was a loving son, brother, cousin, and friend to everyone who was lucky enough to know him. He graduated a few months ago from John F. Kennedy High School in Iselin, NJ. The positive energy and vibe he brought to the classroom with his magnetic personality is something his classmates will forever cherish.”

In the early evening of Sunday, August 14, 2022, 19-year-old Mohammad Abbas was on his way to the mosque on his motorcycle, until he was involved in an accident and lost his life.
Mohammad was a loving son, brother, cousin, and friend to everyone who was lucky enough to know him. He graduated a few months ago from John F. Kennedy High School in Iselin, NJ. The positive energy and vibe he brought to the classroom with his magnetic personality is something his classmates will forever cherish.
Mohammad was also an active member of his Muslim community. He would always assist with setting up and cleaning up at his local center. His presence at the center never went unnoticed, whether with his radiant smile during a happy occasion or being at the forefront of the Azadaari during sad ones. His final act was going from one majlis to another, genuinely exemplifying the dedication and love he had for serving the Ahlul Bayt (a.s).
A few friends from John F. Kennedy High School and the Astaana Youth Group have come together to start this initiative of setting up a fund in his name. The funds raised will be sent to a charity of the family’s choice.
We ask you to keep Mohammad and his loving family in your prayers. Any monetary donation you can make would be greatly appreciated. We are grateful for all the love and support.
