Abdulaziz- Adan (nicknamed "angel" by his mother) also known as Baby Aziz by his family, and "Sache" by his friends.
Abdulaziz, knew who he was and what he wanted to do with his life at an early age. At the age of 8 he changed his own name to Adan, and later changed it legally. While everyone was hoarding toilet paper during the Covid19 quarantine, he was a social activist who donated his savings of $2000 to build a roof/shelter over a school in Africa, in May 2020.
Adan just finished celebrating his 21st birthday this week. He went to Ryerson university and had future plans of becoming a Lawyer one day. Adan worked a full time job at the airport, was planning on getting married this summer, and he was planning on moving out of The Westmall area in Etobicoke, ON to build his own family in a safer neighbourhood. Adan was more goal orientated, mature, and capable than people twice his age, while remaining kind and humble in the process. He had the biggest heart and would offer his help to anyone without being asked.
He is an innocent, and sometimes Allah (god) calls on the innocent to go home early.
Today, June 12, 2020 our beloved brother and friend was shot and killed in broad daylight for no reason, wrong place wrong time. Anyone who has ever met him knows the light he carried, and the even brighter future he was capable of achieving. Â He was taken from us so cowardly and cruelly. No words can express the devastation his murder has caused to our family and our community.
Adan deserves justice for his murder!
He deserves much better than this world has given him. And he deserves to be remembered for the way he lived his life in peace, not only in the unjust way his life was ended.
The Fatwa of Shaykh Ibn Baaz reads: “ A deceased person is in need of supplication and charity (offered on his behalf), and the best thing a living person can do for the deceased person is to supplicate Allah, The Exalted, for him, implore Him to confer His mercy upon him, forgive and pardon him, and elevate his status in Paradise, and other similar good supplications. Charity benefits the deceased as well, be it in the form of money, food, clothes, or any type of property. All these acts benefit the deceased, as well as performing Hajj and ‘Umrah on his behalf. All of this benefits the deceased.” [End of Quote]
Let us all help our baby brother elevate his status is Paradise!
We want to build a memorial children's school in his honour so that his good deeds can multiply as his soul returns to Allah in Jannah (heaven).
The children's school will be built in Africa in the birthplace of his mother, Halima Saad, in Halimale Somalia. This is the same school he donated his savings to last month to assist with building its roof/shelter. This school is still under construction and is at a standstill due to lack of funding. We know that completing the construction of this school is what he would have wanted. And we want to name the school in his honour "Adan Boarding School".
We can not bring our angel back, but as a community we can help him achieve this last goal of his, and we can get him closer to Paradise. Inshallah <3
$40,000 is towards building the school in his name. Any extra funds will be used to build wells In the village, anything remaining will be to support his grieving mother.
