Faraz Tahir should have gone home after his first day shift at Westfield Bondi Junction.

Faraz Tahir has been identified as one of the victims of Saturday's attack at Westfield Bondi Junction

The 30-year-old is being remembered as a "cherished member" of his community and a "dedicated security guard" who lost his life after being fatally wounded by an armed man who has now been identified as a 40-year-old Queensland man.

So far, three other victims have been named including architect and mother-of-two Jade Young, 25-year-old Dawn Singleton and 38-year-old new mum Ashlee Good. Faraz is the only male victim.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia said in a statement there is a "profound sadness over the tragic event that unfolded at Westfield Bondi Junction yesterday" following Faraz's death.

"It is with heavy hearts that we also mourn the loss of Faraz Tahir, a cherished member of our community and a dedicated security guard who tragically lost his life while serving the public during this attack," the statement read.

Faraz sought refuge in Australia a little more than a year ago to flee persecution in his home country of Pakistan. 

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community said Faraz was an "integral part" of their community and is being remembered for his "unwavering dedication and kindness".

"Faraz was not only a valued member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia but also actively contributed to the charitable endeavours of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth organisation," the statement continued, adding praise for the emergency services who reacted quickly during the attack.

"We commend the swift response of the authorities and offer our full cooperation with the ongoing investigation. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting peace, unity, and understanding in our society."

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community also sent their condolences to Faraz's family.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Faraz's family and loved ones during this difficult time, as well as with all the other victims and their families affected by this senseless act of violence," the statement said.

"We extend our deepest condolences and stand in solidarity with the broader community as we come together to support one another in the face of tragedy."

Faraz's friend Shajar Ahmad said he had worked just four or five shifts at Westfield Bondi Junction. Saturday was Faraz's first day shift.

"He had so many hopes and dreams for his future," Shajar said.

GoFundMe for Faraz's family has been created by cousin Shakeel Qureshi to support his siblings, "who face persecution and financial hardship."

"He fled persecution in his home country, Pakistan, and was stuck without a job in Sri Lanka for many years without any other family members during COVID-19. After [Covid], he finally came to Australia, Brisbane. Here, he had been looking for a job for a long time to support his siblings financially back home," the GoFundMe page reads. 

"Due to being unable to find a job in Brisbane, he moved to Sydney. He took the course to be a security guard, even though he struggled with the English language.

"A couple of weeks ago, he returned to Brisbane to visit us and tell us he was very excited to work as he finally got his licence. He then flew back to Sydney," the statement continues. 

"At Bondi Junction, this was his first day on the job; he put other people's lives before his and was killed while defending others."
