Gamal Fouda was at the pulpit on March 15, 2019, when a terrorist stormed Al Noor mosque and killed dozens of worshippers.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Fouda, the imam at Al Noor mosque, spoke to the High Court on Monday, August 24, being the first of 66 victims to speak at the sentencing proceedings expected to last at least four days.

Standing only a few meters away from the terrorist, the imam told him that the wanton murder achieved the opposite of what he wanted, SBS reported.

“There has been much change within our community but I love New Zealand and our society showed love and support for us.
