“My brother Taqui Rahimahullah, was a young passionate brother, striving for the sake of Allah, he was from amongst one of the first brothers I was blessed to come across, he helped me in my early days of coming on Deen and Allah knows how much I benefitted from him. I ask Allah to put that all on his mizaan of hasanaath on the day of judgement, he was a brother who was passionate about spreading the message of Islam, and he was keen on seeking knowledge of the Deen of Allah azuwajal. May Allah forgive his sins, grant him a place in Jannath Al Firdous Al A'laa.”- Abu Dujanah

I have learnt so much from Taqui and I am happy that I had the privilege to know such an amazing person and to have him in my life. I will never forget the times he would wake me up for fajr every night.” - Anonymous
“Taqui was a wonderful person, knew him since childhood, everyone enjoyed being around him. He was very funny and always wanted to joke around and make people happy.

"It is with great sadness that we received the news of the death of our beloved Taqui Eddine Khezihi. He was a 21 year old of French/Algerian origin living in London since 1995.
On the 6th of August, Taqui and his brother Bourhane 24, were attacked by a group of people in the mall outside Costcutters near Ealing Broadway, just 5 minutes away from their home. They went to purchase a mobile top up voucher from Costcutters. Subsequently they had a small argument with two men who attempted to provoke them by saying “What are you looking at?” This escalated to a more threatening attitude from the two men as one of them took a bottle of wine threatening Bourhane and Taqui with it. Bourhane and Taqui responded by telling this person that they did not want to fight and that they were fasting as it was the month of Ramadan.
In the meantime the other man used his phone to call for reinforcements. A few minutes later, a car arrived at the scene and four men equipped with knives joined the fight and surrounded Bourhane and Taqui and punched them repeatedly. Then, others came from behind and stabbed both Bourhane and Taqui in the shoulder.
Taqui received a fatal stab wound to the back which was a direct hit to the heart leaving him bleeding until he was pronounced dead at the hospital. Fortunately for Bourhane, who received the same sort of stabbing in the back that caused a lot of blood loss, he survived and was treated at the St Mary’s hospital.
The family received the devastating news later on in the day where they were shocked and still cannot fathom how such a tragedy could occur in Ealing Broadway, which is renowned as one of the safest places in London.
The family confirms that Taqui and Bourhane were victims of a random assault by this group of criminals already known by the police. They did not have any previous encounters with them and they don’t know them personally.
Taqui was a bright young man full of ambition and had a warm relationship with those surrounding him. He would never harm anyone. He completed the AAT diploma in accountancy with a plan to pursue a Chartered accountant qualification (CIMA). He also ran a small accountancy and IT firm offering services to small businesses.
Taqui was involved in charities and sporting activities in the community. He joined the gym at Ealing Broadway and played football with friends on Sundays.
Family, friends and neighbours in the Ealing area were utterly shocked by this atrocious cr+ime and the loss of such a bright and peaceful young man, who was hoping for the best for everyone.
In light of the arrest and charging of 4 men from the criminal group involved, the family and friends of Taqui hope that the criminals who did this unforgivable act will be brought to justice and receive the maximum punishment. This should serve as a lesson for others and thus secure the future safety of the community.
The family of Taqui would like to thank family members, friends, neighbours, the police and the victim support association for their support during this painful time."
