MWNUK are heartbroken to learn that Fawziyah Javed was taken from this world way too soon.
Fawziyah and her mum Yasmin became MWNUK members more than ten years ago, while Fawziyah was still a student. She was generous with her time and travelled to our events whether in Birmingham or London. We had the privilege of getting to know Fawziyah better when she volunteered and worked for us remotely during the early stages of our growth when we had very limited resources.
Co-Chair of MWNUK, Shaista Gohir OBE said:
“Fawziyah was an empathetic and intelligent young woman who pursued her passion for social justice through her charity work, which also included supporting MWNUK. My thoughts and prayers are with her mother Yasmin, who is such a lovely, thoughtful and kind woman. I pray Allah gives her the strength to endure this great pain of losing her only child. Fawziyah will remain in our hearts and memory forever. May Allah grant her the highest rank in Jannah.”
Executive Director of MWNUK, Faeeza Vaid MBE also shared:
“I remember meeting Fawziyah and being immediately impressed. As I got to know her, I learned she was a deeply caring individual, determined to make a difference in this world. She was smart and vivacious and pursued her dream of becoming a lawyer. My heart breaks to know she is no longer with us. And my thoughts and duas go out to her beautiful mum.”
If anyone else would like to add their memories of Fawziyah to this page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly compile.
We do ask that you please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time, and refrain from making comments publicly about her case as this may compromise the investigation.
