KHUZAIMAH DOUGLAS TRIBUTE

On 20th February 2020 we received the devastating news that we had lost one of our own at the USKA Fight Factory.

At only 19 years of age our beloved brother, friend and training partner Khuzaimah Douglas was taken from us suddenly and it has left a void and a space in our hearts that will never be replaced.
Khuzaimah was an exceptionally talented Martial Artist who in just under 4 years of training won 12 World Championship Gold medals and had the World at his feet in terms of how far he could have gone within his chosen sport.

Khuzaimah's nature as a person was an infectious one and he left a positive mark on everyone he came into contact with from the smallest of little ninja at the gym to the most senior of adults making him one of the most personable members of the USKA gym and one that has had the most impact in his passing.
We in Zaymi's memory must change and excel in everything we do, be better at everything we do and make him proud with the way we live our lives, conduct ourselves and how we approach our art.
We miss and love you Zaymi and one day will get to go a few more rounds with you in Jannah Inshallah.

Please pray for Khuzaimah and his family and do good in his name.

Inna Lillaahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raaji'oon
(To Allah we belong and to him is our return)

 


UPDATE - JANUARY 2021


Our Charity project last year was to raise money to build three Solar Powered water well pumps in Pakistan in our beloved Brother Kuzaimah Douglas's name. Due to the Global Covid Pandemic it slowed down production but happily the final pump was completed at the end of January in Rataniyari Khasheli Village in Tharparker Desert to add to the Solar Powered pumps in Jungaho Village and Rajar Khipro Village in the Achro Thar Desert from the end of last year. With an additional £652 raised we decided that we through The Isra-UK charity would fund an Olive tree plantation in Gaza and we are pleased to announce that we have received confirmation that that has now also been completed. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the project and also to everyone who has kept and who continue to keep Zaymi and his family in their thoughts and their prayers. Jazakallah to you all, may God reward you with goodness.

UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2020


We are delighted to inform you that the first two of three solar powered water pumps funded by donations made in the name of our beloved brother and dearly missed friend Khuzaimah Douglas have been completed through our friends at the ISRA-UK Charity.

The first pump in the small Jungaho village in the desert area known as Achro Thar, Sindh and the second in the small Rajar Khipro village in the same desert area in Pakistan.
These pumps will benefit the locals who are largely peasant workers that struggle to get by day to day earning as little as $20 per month.
The relief of accessing clean palatable water is more than a blessing for these communities as you can clearly see from the joy in the photos.
These pumps have also removed the daily burden for the villagers walking long distances to find usable water. 
Thank you to each and every one of you for supporting the project and making this possible and may Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) reward you and our Brother Zaymi in the Akhirah.

UPDATE - MAY 2020

WWW.RE:SOLE.CO.UK


In May 2020 £1000 was donated to the Re:Sole Charity from funds raised in Khuzaimah's name.

Re:Sole's mission is to provide the homeless and at-risk youth population with quality footwear to encourage healthier lifestyles and prevent disease while fostering a sense of community along the way.

Moosa from Re:Soles story... 
When Moosa converted to Islam, his faith gave him a strong personal connection to charity and helping the less fortunate. 
Moosa decided to start a small side project with his mates, giving away high-quality trainers to at-risk teenagers and the homeless.
After the horror of the Grenfell fire in 2017, they gave away extra donations to those who had lost everything. 
But in the years of his philanthropy, Moosa noticed that the quality of donations – particularly clothes – were not up to scratch. 
Feeling ’embarrassed’ to hand over tattered items, Moosa decided to change the nature of his offerings.
So he launched Resole, an initiative that hands out fresh trainers to the homeless and disadvantaged youths at risk of gang violence and drug abuse.

A message from the Re:Sole team and community
Resole have benefited greatly from the kind donation we received, It has allowed us to reach out to hundreds of people in London and also Manchester during very difficult times throughout the covid pandemic. Your donations have directly impacted some of the most vulnerable in our communities, May Allah reward you all abundantly and make it a means of expiation and ongoing sadaqah for khuzaimah. 

Barakallah feek
