The driver, a 23-year-old man, was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Nadia’s mother has now paid tribute to her “beautiful” and “happy” daughter.

She said: ‘Nadia (May Rabbi rest her soul in Jannah) died tragically in a traffic accident and everyone who loved her is still in shock and disbelief.

“She was my firstborn and best friend. Not only was Nadia physically beautiful, but she had an equally beautiful heart as evidenced by all the people who paid their respects to the family.

“Nothing was ever too much for her and taking charge of her siblings was just one of the chores she loved to do.

“Nadia was a happy teenager loved by all who crossed her path and she enjoyed her life and looked forward to a bright future.

“I cannot and will not tire of saying that she was cheerful, caring and considerate to everyone who knew her and beyond. She really touched the hearts of everyone she met.

“She was my firstborn and best friend.  nadia [pictured] was not only physically beautiful, but she had an equally beautiful heart, as evidenced by all the people who paid their respects to the family,

“She was my firstborn and best friend. nadia [pictured] was not only physically beautiful, but she had an equally beautiful heart, as evidenced by all the people who paid their respects to the family,” her mother said.

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

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

“As a family, we would like to thank everyone who took the time to pay their respects, as well as all the emergency services who helped her. Thanks and jazak kheyran for all the kind gestures and messages.

“This reminds us that death has been decreed by Allah and that we will all return to our creator.”

Obviously, Nadia was a former pupil at Manchester Academy, in Moss Side, south Manchester.

Principal James Eldon said the school community was devastated by her loss.

Mr Eldon said: ‘Everyone at Manchester Academy is devastated to hear that one of our ex-students was tragically killed in a car accident and that another ex-student is seriously ill following the accident.

“We send all our love and prayers to the families at this horrific time.”

No arrests have been made and the cause of the accident is being investigated. Flower tribute was left on the spot.
