A murder investigation has been launched following the fatal stabbing of a 22 year old Imam and Quran reciter in Tower Hamlets.

The man, named locally as Mohammed Aqil Mehdi, 22, was pronounced dead at the scene of the attack in Navigation Road, Tower Hamlets.

His Quran teacher wrote “Hafidh Aqil was a very special student of mine whom I’ve had the blessed opportunity to teach and mentor for the past 10 years. Words cannot alone describe how much he meant to me. He always tried and excelled so much in his Qur’anic journey, studying and staying with various teachers in Egypt too.

“His mother is an experienced teacher of the Qur’an and has always made so much effort behind her son. Every year for the last ten years, his mother would contact me and ask me to help secure Hafidh Aqil a Taraweeh placement and Alhamdulillah, we had led the Taraweeh prayers together on several occasions.

He always recited in such a beautiful, melodious and soothing tone. I would never get tired of listening to his Qur’an. Alhamdulillah, I had the opportunity to lead the Taraweeh prayers with Hafidh Aqil for the last time this year during Ramadan.

“SubhanAllah, just like many of the youth today, Hafidh Aqil faced many struggles in his late teenage years. But he had immense love for the Qur’an. He was never afraid to develop himself as a reciter and would regularly ask me for advice.

In fact, he had reached out to me via WhatsApp just a few weeks ago asking how I was. He would always message or send me a voice note asking me how I was and requesting to make dua for him. Despite his hardships, he always had a good heart and cared so much for others.

“May The Almighty grant him the highest status of Jannah and accept his efforts for the Qur’an. Please keep Hafidh Aqil and his family in your prayers.”
