about me

my name is Abdul-Aleem Malik (31).

In daytime I work as a client manager to secure hospitals and patients from hackers.

At nightime I train and work to enable beautiful moments for kids in paliative care.

how it all started

In 2012, after finishing my A-levels, I decided to cycle from Mannheim to London to raise money for children with cancer in Mannheim. We managed to raise €3200 for the German Leukaemia Research Foundation (DLFH) to help the children fulfil their wishes from a wish box. The secound project was calles bravery beads, the kids where provided with necklaces made up of individual beads that have been obtained by means of specific procedures during their therapy. I was unable to complete the 2012 ride due to the health of my cycling partner Leona.


In 2014, together with a team of students in Mannheim, I collected over €11,000 in donations for emergency aid for the Gazans through the NGO Islamic Relief in Cologne, part of the funds were used to maintain baby incubators in hospitals. Finally, I was able to complete my 700km bike ride in 6 days on my own.


After 4 years of marriage, my wife Aylin and I were blessed with our first child, Ibrahim-Khalil. After almost two months in intensive care, Ibrahim-Khalil was diagnosed with an extremely rare metabolic disease. Our only wish was to take him home to meet his family and friends. This wish was made possible by the palliative care unit. 


For one year and three months, the palliative care unit supported us from the first day to the last.  We were given beautiful moments and memories at home.

I do not believe in coincidences, I see my destiny as a mission and I have made a commitment to cycle from our son's grave in Darmstadt to the Hajj pilgrimage via Jerusalem and the Prophet Abraham's tomb in Hebron in April 2024. All the rites of the Hajj go back to the Prophet Abraham.
With this project I want to give something back and enable others to have precious family moments.
