A woman injured in a Dundee shop fire six weeks ago has died in hospital.
Sabinah Islam, 53, was working at Best-one in Fintry Road, near the Dolphin bar, on October 18 when the premises went up in flames.
Her relative Mohammed Abdur Rajak confirmed her death on a Facebook post last night.
He wrote: “It is with a heavy heart to announce the passing away of a Dundee sister.
“We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return.”
Tributes to ‘kind soul’ Sabinah Islam
Six days after the fire Sabinah’s son Zoheb called the community in Fintry the “best in the world”, saying the area was his mum’s “comfort zone”.
And locals paid tribute to her “big heart” on Mohammed’s post.
One wrote: “A wonderful friend for 21 years… I will never ever forget you.
“You were the kindest soul with the biggest heart. You will be sorely missed by many.”
Another added: “Very sad news to hear, devastating for her children, husband, family and friends at this very sad time.
“My thoughts are with you. Wonderful woman she was.”
