The Family of a Christchurch victim speak about their Son

A young twenty-four-year-old Muslim was one of fifty victims who was gunned down in the terror attacks in Christchurch. Tariq Omar was seen by witnesses attempting to save a child before he was killed by the gunman. Tariq is described by his family as a very gentle and loving person. He was very protective of his younger siblings. He was also a very dedicated Muslim who would strictly adhere to Islamic principles especially when it came to eating halal. Just weeks before he left to pray his final Friday prayer he had said that he would like to die in the mosque. May Allah grant Tariq and all the victims of the Christchurch attack the highest level of Jannah.
